Project Description

This program will serve approximately 100 players, aged 5-7 from a wide range of demographics. The program entails 4 one hour sessions per week that will be open to Recreational players that are new to soccer in Jacksonville. Each session will involve 25+ players and volunteer coaches who will be educated in the process of player / child development. This will allow the volunteer coaches to better serve the players in their individual training sessions throughout the course of the week. The curriculum will be coordinated and implemented by our professional staff and will focus on gross motor skills with the use of a soccer ball. While the sessions will be fundamentally technical, there will be a social aspect to them being that soccer is a team sport. The goal of this program is to instill within the players a passion for soccer that will urge them to continue competing through their adolescence meanwhile teaching many life lessons and building self-esteem.
