The SLSC “Little Cosmos” Program is designed for 3 and 4 year old players interested in having a good time and being introduced to the best game on the planet. The sessions will focus on foot-eye coordination, balance, and having fun. The sessions will be 45 minutes long each week and the program will run for 8 weeks.
The “Little Cosmos” Program- is held each Friday night from 5:45p-6:30p.
Speed & Agility/ Ball Mastery, and Shooting & Striking
The SLSC “Extra Time” Program is designed for all Competitive, Academy, and U11-U19 Recreational players. This Program is offered by the South Lakes Soccer Club to supplement the training received in the team training session. Each program is tailored to the specific topic and the focus remains consistent throughout the program. Players will have 2 choices when it comes to training. These options are outlined below and players are welcome to participate in more than one session. Each program has its own unique benefits and will allow for maximum learning each session. Both programs are $65 each for the entire season.
Speed & Agility/Ball Mastery (530-630p)
SLSC is dedicated to meeting all of its athlete’s needs. The “Speed & Agility” program is designed for all players interested in improving their overall athleticism. The sessions will focus on foot speed, (including transitions into cuts and changes of direction) foot coordination, acceleration, deceleration, core strength, and flexibility. In a team setting tactical and positional training must occur. Individual time spent with the ball tends to be less as players get older. Often players are looking for additional training or individual training to help in areas like speed, fast footwork, juggling, moves to beat opponents, and overall ball mastery. This program addresses the need for such technical training.
While individual training will always be offered, the “Ball Mastery” program will offer a more affordable option. These sessions will challenge players to take their technical skills to the next level. This program will consist of Speed and Agility for the first half of the session and Ball Mastery the second half. (We have combined these two programs to maximize learning and growing potential)
Shooting & Striking (630-730p)
This very successful program will focus on proper technique in striking the soccer ball. Players often struggle with the ability to strike the ball correctly and with power. This program will address those needs. These sessions will be instructional and will allow players to grow in their individual confidence. There isn’t anything better than striking a ball at goal!
The SLSC Extra Time Goalkeeping Program is designed to provide Goalkeepers additional training in a fast paced shooting environment. Our Goalkeeping staff will be working with keepers, while the shooting staff will be working with field players. These hour long sessions will challenge players to take Goalkeeping to the next level. The sessions will be on Friday nights from 6:30-7:30pm.
The SLSC Head Start Program is designed for all recreational players at any level.
The Program is offered by the South Lakes Soccer Club to increase the technical skills of its participants while keeping things challenging and fun. These hour long sessions will challenge players to take their technical skills to the next level. Players will be sorted by age and ability. They will primarily be in these groups for the duration of the program. Specifically, coaches will work with the players on ball mastery, fast footwork, juggling, dribbling, dribbling to beat an opponent, dribbling for speed, passing, shooting, receiving, etc. This program will allow players to continue to play on their recreational team of choice while getting additional training that will help them take their game to the next level. This program will also offer coaches a great opportunity to have a professional staff work with their players and can be used as a practice for the entire team. Coaches are encouraged to attend, take notes, ask questions, and take ideas back to their teams on a regular basis. All Sessions will be held on Friday nights from 630p-730p.
All Sessions will be offered on Friday nights. (8 Sessions Total)
