Westfield Soccer Association

Winter Programming: Registration Opens Friday 11-13-15

Rec, Academy and Intercounty Players born 2005-2010

Registration for the Westfield SA winter programs will open Friday, 11/13/15.  These winter programs provide all players in the Rec, IC and the Academy an opportunity to train locally under the guidance of professional trainers assigned by the WSA.  All the training will take place in gyms right in town.  The focus of these clinics will be on individual skill development and confidence on the ball.  Clinics will be 8 weeks long starting on January 3rd, 2016.

To get everyone in the Association aligned with the new age group definitions outlined by the US Soccer Federation, all programs are set up per year of birth.  This is to ensure all of our youngest membrers are given the opportunity to adjust to the changes coming up.  The indoor programs are available for all players in rec, academy and Intercounty born in the year 2005-2010.

We will offer 3 different programs this winter:

 

For players born in 2009 and 2010

U5/U6 Ball Mastery
Cost - $145 (8 Sunday sessions)

For our members born in 2009 and 2010 we are running a ball mastery program. Ball Mastery emphasizes the importance of individual technique.  This individual player development emphasizes an "all-ball" approach that uses a range of training activities and techniques to maximize a player’s touches on the ball and to foster confidence, creativity and composure during play.  

For questions regarding Winter Rec Ball Mastery, contact Chris Partelow.  

 

For players born in 2007 and 2008

U7/U8 Academy Winter Training
Cost - $160  (8 Sunday sessions)

The academy program is available for all players born in 2007 and 2008.  The players' main focus throughout this program will be on individual skill developmen and confidence in possession of the ball.  These two things are paramount to a player's success when stepping into a competitive soccer environment.  There will also be a focus form the trainers on ensuring that the players understand that attitude/application is imperative to succes in the modern-day game.  Players will be asked plenty of questions about activities throughout the program and will take away with them valuable lessons within the drills and games that will aid their future development as soccer players, both on and off the field.

 

 

For players born in 2005 and 2006

U9/U10 Intercounty 2014 Winter Futsal Training for U9/U10 Boys and Girls
Cost - $145 (8 Sunday sessions)

Futsal is a five-a-side version of soccer that finds its origins in South America.  It was originally designed for youth competition in YMCAs.  The game is played on basketball-sized cours, both indoors and out without the use of sidewalls.  The term FUTSAL is the international term used for the game.  It is derived fromt eh Spanish or Portugese word for "soccer" - FUTbol or FUTebol - and the French or Spanish word for "indoor" - SALon or SALa.

For young, developing players, Futsal is a great way to continue to develop their game and get touches on the ball.  Remember, the main goal for the young soccer player is to improve individual technique while having fun.  Futsal is one of the best "teachers" of the game to provide a fun, learning environment.
