Green and Gold Soccer Academy – Winter Session 2013

The Green and Gold Soccer Academy – Winter Session 2013

The Green and Gold Soccer Academy is pleased to announce that we will be offering Feature Team development and high performance training for 3 youth club teams in the Winter Session 2013. Intended for the more serious youth soccer teams, boys and girls teams at the U-10, U-12, U-14 or U16 age categories, the academy program is structured to facilitate the development of these teams and their players to compete at the higher levels of club soccer.

The feature teams will be afforded the benefit of 1-2 practices per week for 10 practices during the January-March time period conducted by the academy's professional coaches, including goalkeeper specialist, utilizing our first-class facilities and equipment.  In addition, the academy coaches will provide on-going technical assistance and advice to the coaching staff of those selected feature teams in terms of their physical, technical, tactical and game mentality development for competition.  

The academy aims to provide a coaching process that is based on solid youth development coaching principles, delivered by our professional and experienced coaches utilizing superior soccer facilities.  Strict adherence to the Canadian Soccer Associations Long Term Player Development (LTPD) model is applied.

A major benefit of the feature team program includes practices incorporating more advanced team, functional and phase of play coaching emphasis.   All goalkeepers will be provided with specialized instruction in all aspects of this demanding position. 

Each training session may feature soccer specific fitness training in the development of agility, coordination, quick feet, core strength, endurance, speed and power. The fitness or physical development is combined with technical and tactical training with a view to providing the youth player the optimum opportunity for soccer skill enhancement.

The cost for feature team training will be $4000 (or $250 per player for a squad of 16 players).
