2015 – 2016 Brandon Rascal Academy
For those little players not quite ready or old enough for our traditional classic soccer (U6) program, we have introduced our Brandon Rascal Soccer Academy. Here, our youngest athletes (almost 3 to 4 years of age) will slowly be introduced to a sports social environment and the beginning of the soccer skills necessary to feel comfortable with the ball at their feet. Run by our Recreational Director of Coaching, we have multiple seasons throughout the year
- The focus will be on ‘Fun’
- activities will be soccer related, with a heavy emphasis on ‘Dribbling’
- We want our players to be comfortable with the ball at their feet, then they will have the confidence to be creative players.
- We want little Messi’s, little entertainers, that have a thirst for the ball and a love for this, the ‘Beautiful’ game.
Sessions will run for around 35 minutes and will end with a short ‘soccer like’ game to goals. This will illustrate the initial ability of the players to grasp game concepts and gauge their development as they become more aware of the intricacies of the game.
This is most definitely the ‘Me’ age group; the players want the ball to themselves and have no real concept of team play and the real game of 11v11 soccer. By participating in this program they will attain the basic skills to be comfortable on the soccer field. Those players that show an ability to remain focused and grasp the game concepts can participate in traditional game play.
