Westfield Soccer Association

U7 and U8 Winter Academy

For all players born in 2010 and 2011

U7 Winter Academy

The U7 winter academy is going in to its 2nd year and set up for those players born in 2011 looking to further develop their soccer skills. Anyone interested in taking this class will be exposed to training with a heavy focus on the ability to control and manipulate the ball. To play soccer successfully one needs to be able to manipulate the ball, using different surfaces of both feet. In fun and challenging activities, we look to provide the players with a lot of touches to help them further develop their ability the master the ball. A player who can control the ball will not only become more competent, but also more confident in his or her own ability.

U8 Winter Academy

A winter program specifically designed for the serious soccer player born in 2010 looking to further develop their soccer skills. Anyone interested in this program can sign up for 1 or both 6 week sessions, which both take place at the Westfield Armory this upcoming winter.

The curriculum of this winter program will build upon what the players have been exposed to in training in the U8 academy or U8 rec during the Fall 2017. During the U8 academy and U8 rec the focus has been solely on developing the basic dribbling technique. Dribbling is the foundation on which all other soccer techniques are build. A player who is capable of controlling the ball will not only be more confident, but can also be taught how and when to pass and/or shoot. For that reason, it is important that players learn to manipulate the ball using both feet and different surfaces, eventually under pressure of opponents. Understanding that this takes time and lot of repetition, those players interested in becoming more comfortable and competent on the ball will most certainly benefit from taking part in this class.
