The ESC Academy program is designed to allow recreational players aged U7-U10 to practice and play with kids of like ability. This program allows players to be challenged according to their level of ability and to help them develop as soccer players. It gives players the opportunity to work with experienced ESC staff coaches who have an extensive experience playing and coaching the game.
The focus of the training sessions will be teaching each player the skills necessary to have success in the game. Players will work with the ball at their feet to make them comfortable with the ball and have the confidence to keep the ball during games. Each session will lead into small-sided games to teach players how to apply the skills in the game.
The Academy program is also a great tool for preparing players that think they may want to try out for competitive soccer at U11, or just to lay a solid foundation for continued play at the recreational level at U11.
