Welcome to the SOCA 2018 Advanced Training Program
The SOCA Advanced Training Program (ATP) enhances the skill development of individual players through active training games and fun, skill-building activities. ATP is a great way for Recreation and Challenge players to get an extra, quality training session each week. 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.
The program is targeted toward eager players seeking advancement and is accepting boys and girls players U8 and U10. Training is conducted by fully licensed SOCA staff members and additional certified staff. The program is under the direct supervision of SOCA Director of Soccer, Bill Mueller. ATP sessions and training groups are limited in size to ensure appropriate coach-to-player ratio. The 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.
