Seacoast United's Skills Development Program emphasizes soccer technical skill development and scrimmage play within every training session.
Created for 7-14 yr olds, the focus of this program is to enhance a player's confidence while in possession of the ball, as well as to develop tactical awareness during game play.
SKILL DEVELOPMENT ON THE BALL
Using both feet and multiple surfaces of the foot, we encourage players to experiment with all turns, tricks and skills whereas to develop their technical confidence with the ball. Players will work on receiving the ball with different parts of their feet, both with and without pressure from a defender.
SHAPE & SUPPORT
Developing the idea of triangle and diamond shapes by supporting the player on the ball, resulting in more options for the player in possession rather than just kicking the ball away.
SMALL SIDED ENVIRONMENT
Lots of 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, and 4v4 free play within each training session. Players will be allowed to experiment and maximize development through multiple contacts on the ball and also recognize the triangle and diamond shape within the flow of the game.
