Travel Program (Competitive Club)
The Travel (Competitive Club Program) is for competitive and advanced level players, between the ages of 8 and 14, who demonstrate the desire and ability to learn and play soccer at the next level. We offer a more challenging and competitive playing environment than is typically provided by local recreational leagues. The primary goal for our competitive team program is to help each player reach his or her maximum potential with regards to soccer, as well as to give our players the best possible resources to develop successful teams. Competitive teams are formed in the spring or fall of each year through open tryouts and evaluations. Players are accepted to their team for a one - year (12-month) commitment beginning July 1 to June 30th the following year. Competitive first teams practice 1 times per week (with the option of a 2nd training per week) during the fall and spring seasons as well as train weekly during the winter. Alba FC Individual teams compete at various levels depending upon the competitive needs of the players involved. If you have any questions about the Competitive Program or would like additional information please contact us email@example.com
Alba FC Travel Methods of Coaching
The game is the best teacher - The best teacher is the game. Our coaches who create a game – like environment during their training sessions have found the key to success.
Using small sided games to teach - The use of small sided games creates the right environment for player development by allowing players to develop creatively by allowing them to respond to the problems presented by the game.
What is player development - The concept of player development is essential to long term growth and improvement of the player. Player development demands that “the player is central” to all decisions made regarding training and competition.
Role of the coach Our coaches take on many roles when leading their teams. They fully understand their roles within the overall player development process. Serve as a Facilitator. As a positive role model. Understand who they are coaching.
Understanding age characteristics - Our coaches understand that age characteristics are not always the same for each individual at the same time. Although the chronological age of two players may be the same, the biological age may be different. These differences are readily apparent in size, maturity and motor skills.
How do players learn - Players learn in different ways. Somme are better at following verbal instructions while others need to see an example of what they should do. Some need to see and hear instructions to be clear on what they are to do. Here at Alba FC our coaches recognize this fact and tailor their coaching to meet these needs and help each player to achieve their best sooner.
What information do we give players when coaching - Provide clearly defined goals (objectives, targets .rules, etc.) - Provide information in a logical progression. - Feedback about performance.
Practice organization - The game will tell our coaches what the team needs to practice. We say that the game and training have a reciprocal effect. The game indicates what we need to train for and in training we prepare for the game.
Warm up – prepares the players both physically and mentally for the training session.3w
Individual activities - The need for this portion of the practice will depend upon the ability and specific needs of the players.
Small group activities - This area includes small group games that may provide a lead into a larger group games or activities.
Large group activities and /or team activities – This does not mean 11 v 11. Large group games can be situations that are numbers up, numbers down or even numbered.
