Positive Spin 

**Sometimes you stumble upon opportunities to fulfill past so called “phenomenal” ideas and this is one of those cases. We have wanted to do a Competition Day/Skills Challenge with the Center of Excellence and Performance Academy for over a decade and the moment has not ever presented itself in a better manner.

The March 1st make-up date will be used as a Competition Day between mirrored aged groups in different locations as well as between boys and girls in specific age groups. This session will be a technically challenging, individual, small group and team competition style session.  Play will not only provide a cohesion between all Center of Excellence players, but crown players in specific skills sets and small group games. This golden carrot at the end of the winter programs is another motivation feature that can be used to extracting pride, competitive perseverance and accountability it takes earn this honor.

This will be the inaugural Coerver Colorado Skills Showcase

A Chance to prove you are among the best of the best.

Understanding Stats – Summer Camps

PASSING GATES

Set up: A middle zone (4x4yds) is stocked with soccer balls for all 4 participants to share. Red Cones form the 4 areas in which participants follow. The first red cone is set 10 yards from the middle zone, while the second and last red cone is set 20 yards from the middle zone. To the left and right of the red cone (20yards away) are 2 target gates (Image shows gates in Blue and Yellow).  Each target gate is 2 yards wide and start 5 yards away on each side of the red cone.

Action: The players will start by dribbling from the middle towards the first red cone and try to pass the ball through the gate. Alternate gates and foot (Left Gate= Left Foot/ Right Gate= Right Foot)

Scoring: 4 players play at once. Remaining players stop the balls once they have crossed the goal line of the gate and return them to center zone. 1 point for each successful pass through its gate.

FIGURE 8’s

Set up:  Player starts behind the line and dribbles the ball in a Figure 8 around the two cones. To cones are set 10 yards apart.

Action: Each player will make 3, one minute, runs with different dribbling surface restrictions: Right foot, Left foot and Both feet. The score for each run is how many laps are done in .25 increments. If the player uses the wrong foot there is a ¼ point penalty for each time it is used.

Scoring: Record the total laps completed from all three runs. A score of 625 means a players dribbled around six and a quarter times.

 LONG DISTANCE SERVE

Set up: Lines of cones are placed across the field at 3 yard intervals to create the alley (48yrds in Length). The alley is 5 yards wide and starts 9 yards from the service line. There are two, 2 yards wide, alleys on either side of the central alley.

Action: Groups are separated into 4 players who will do this assessment in sequential order. Everyone is to complete their first 4 turns using the right foot. Once all right foot drives have been recorded, players repeat the assessment using the left foot.

Scoring: Coach records in full 3 yard increments (A ball struck 23.5 yards is scored as a “21”). Balls landing short of the 9 yard mark score “0” Subtract 2 yards if the ball lands in the 1st side alley, 4 if it lands in the 2nd, 8 if outside the second. Consistency is a goal, with the best and average scores being very close and similar numbers for both feet.

POWER SHOT

Set up: Players take turns shooting at a goal. The velocity of the shot is measured with a radar gun in MPH.

Action: Groups are separated into 4 players who will do this assessment in sequential order. 1st player goes, the 2nd waits until the ball hits the net and a score is recorded prior to going. Everyone is to complete their first 4 turns using the right foot. Once all right foot shots have been recorded, players repeat the assessment using the left foot. Consistency is a goal, with the best and average scores being very close, and similar numbers for both feet.

5-3-1 CHALLENGE This is an activity we do Monday through Thursday.  Monday is used to learn the activity; the other days will be a competition. Each day the group plays 3 games, 5v5, 3v3 and 1v1. Each player on the winning team in each of the three segments gets 3 points (i.e. they can get as many as 9 points a day.) If there’s a tie in one of the segments, players get 1 point each for that segment. The player with the most points at the end of the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday competitions is the 5-3-1 Challenge champion.

JUGGLING PROGRESSION Our juggling progression consists of 12 levels. You will notice a score with 3 digits. The first number represents the current level. The following two numbers are the juggles completed within that level (Example: 326 is level 3 with 26 juggles)
