If you are interested in coaching please contact us at email@example.com Our philosophy for ideal long term youth player development is to play possessive attacking football. Possessive meaning we like to keep the ball in the attack. Attacking meaning we like to penetrate when we see the right opportunity. This style of play takes time, patience and skill to develop; however, this style will set up our players at all levels to reach their goals in football while enjoying their selves. While playing this style on the field we will continue to strive to create a program that fosters a place for every player based on their goals.
Each player will be well rounded in regards to their physical, technical and physiological abilities on the field. All players ideally need to be able to play all positions, as it helps them to understand the game better while being taught a balance of attack and defence. Off field, we will teach all of our players to be polite and respectful while being tough and aggressive. All players are expected to be in good standing at school. A great soccer player equals a great student equaling into a great citizen....

At this stage, skill training demands and training loads are increased to develop and refine skills and tactics. Tactical awareness becomes an increasingly important facet of training, alongside mental toughness, concentration, and diligence. Elite soccer groups may express interest in recruiting talented young players, but coaches and parents should be careful to recognize and protect the long-term interests of each athlete. Game formats develop from 8v8 to 11v11 (although no 11v11 prior to 13 years of age) as players grow through this stage, and the season moves toward year-round play that includes appropriate rest and recovery periods.
