2018 Winter Academy: U6 Hot Shots (Thursday @ Clark Elementary School, 5:00-6:00 pm)
Welcome to the SOCA 2018 Winter Academy
The Academy offers a focused training environment that is age and skill appropriate. Typically each training session will be composed of three main parts: individual technical skill development, small group training activities specific to the daily topic, and small sided game play. Academy instruction is provided by SOCA staff coaches and each Academy is limited in size to ensure appropriate coach-to-player ratio. Each player will receive a Winter Academy T-shirt. Each program will run for six consecutive weeks meeting once per week at the same day, location and time, with a reserved make-up date in the event of inclement weather cancelation.
U6 Hot Shots Winter Academy
Hot Shots Academy is a fun way to play and learn soccer. The Hot Shots Academy introduces children to basic soccer skills in a kid-friendly, non-competitive environment. Each session includes player coordination activities, individual skill development, fun skill building games and ends with small sided games to goals.
