About

What to expect at each session: 

  • Superior 1v1 Skills: the ability and confidence to take on and beat an opponent in a one-on-one situation, together with the poise to keep possession of the ball under strong defensive pressure. Players can expect some sort of one-on-one activity at every session.
  • A Dynamic First Touch: the skill and vision to place the ball with the first touch to a spot where it can be played again quickly and productively with a variety of body parts. This is found in every session.
  • Accuracy and Powerful Shooting: with several surfaces of either foot. The main focus of the shooting drills will be with the WEAK FOOT.
  • Mastery of the Small Group Situations (2v1, 3v1, 3v2, etc.) which are the building blocks of team play. Turing series drills will be a focus as well as attaching 3v2 2v1 situations.

Whatever an athlete’s potential, great skills are the foundation for achieving it. Each and every player should have the opportunity to develop magical skills.

2018-2019 Age Groups

The Performance Academy program is for players born in years 2009 – 2003. It provides in depth Coerver training that is systematic and sustained over time, with a focus on developing the essential skills for an athlete’s future in The Game.

Curriculum

The Performance Academy curriculums will be competitive in the original sense of the word – “striving with”, not “striving against”. Players learn that the ultimate team player uses his or her own best efforts both to get better and to challenge teammates to improve as well. That idea is one example of the emphasis on developing the character traits found in the most successful athletes. After all, it’s the Life Lessons you learn through sports that will be more enduring, and are therefore are more important, than anything you’ll learn about soccer.

The Performance Academy will use our Levels V, IV and III curriculums. It builds on and enhances the players’ footskills, 1v1 proficiencies, and abilities to strike and control the ball with not only the strong foot,  but the main focused will be on the weak foot. The three curriculum cycle features a systematic approach to recognizing and solving the small-group situations (from 2v1 to 5v5) that are the building blocks of team play.

  • Level V devotes significant time on individual’s ability to face up a defender on the first touch launching ways that a pair of players can combine to beat an opponent in possession under pressure.
  • Level IV devotes significant time to ways that players in groups of three can combine to beat opponents and begins to develop the ability to play with “back to pressure.” In addition, players will be asked to learn and demonstrate our Great Soccer Habits.
  • Level III applies the ability to recognize and solve situations in 2’s and 3’s (including the use of the “individual option”) to play under the challenge of ever-increasing pressures of time, space, and number of players.  Sessions will be demanding and competitive.
