What is Advanced Rec?

ADVANCED REC The Advanced Rec Program is for U7 & U8 players that will be transitioning to travel soccer at U9 or for U7 & U8 players that wish to improve their skills and learn more about the game of soccer. The Advanced Rec Program trains 2-3 times per week in the Spring and 1 time per week in the Fall. Over 8-10 weeks they will learn and train on dribbling, shooting, collecting and receiving, passing and shape/space. In the spring we will spend about 5 sessions on each topic and 2 sessions in the fall.  We run our training sessions just like a travel team would. We start out by warming up and doing small sided activities with a lot of touches on the ball and progress to small sided scrimmages at the end of each training session. The Advanced Rec group is coached by the Director of Coaching. Parent coaches that have coached in Rec or in Travel, or parents wishing to start coaching are encouraged to help with the group. The goal of our Advanced Rec Program is to provide a fun and positive atmosphere where our players can learn the techniques and tactics that will allow them to transition into the travel program. We offer Spring and Fall sessions.
