2020 Winter Academy: U8 Skill Builder (Monday @ Clark Elementary School, 6:00-7:00 pm)
Welcome to the SOCA 2020 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.
