Soccer Training Program

Soccer Training Program by SUSA

We all love competition, but it’s really hard to develop skills in a match. Really, really hard. In a 40-minute match, the average player will touch the ball for 1-3 minutes. Total. And don’t forget the opposing players who will try to ensure that your son/daughter does not get the chance to improve. And if he/she is playing U6-U7, then they’re probably going to have to fake out their own teammates as well since they, too, are trying to get the ball for themselves. Those conditions are pretty darned hard to overcome in order to improve at this “beautiful game”.

The players that we see improving the most are those who take training as seriously, if not more seriously than the matches. We have formed a great alliance with the good folks at SUSA Academy to train our players for a very low fee, a fee that the club offsets at our expense (we pay nearly as much per child as you pay in addition to your fee) because it’s something that we’ve decided is of key importance for the players’ development. 

In a single 75-minute session, your child will have a ball at their feet nearly the entire time, or for about 4 seasons’ worth of gameplay given the analysis above. That’s time for a lot of improvement!
