SYSL Developmental Program Ball Mastery -Spring 2014
Ball Mastery Developmental Training Program Description:
Ball Mastery courses are designed to develop soccer specific skills and techniques that will improve ball control, dribbling speed, coordination, agility, and balance. Players of all ability can push their game to a new level, as exercising with and without a ball develops the skills necessary for every player. By learning and mastering basic skills of soccer, players are able to develop the advanced moves you can see at the professional level. The youth academies of FC Barcelona, Manchester United, Ajax Amsterdam and many others are using this great way of soccer.
This program will progressively work on 1. Footwork - teaches feints, moves and basic skills essential in developing confidence and mastery with the ball; and 2. First Touch, Control, and Passing - how to properly control balls on the ground and in the air focusing on receiving the ball with proper technique and positioning, and learn to improve the accuracy, pace and variety in their passing game. The weekly Training sessions will conclude with either small sided or large scale scrimmages so players can freely incorporate their skills in real game situations.
The Developmental Training Program will train with the Challenger Trainers (Alex Jones – England and Camila Mattos – Brazil) on Monday Evenings - girls 5:00pm to 6:00pm and boys 6:10pm to 7:10pm. This program is being offered to all U7 and U8 players and is in addition to the Intramural program -- all participants are still required to participate in their regularly scheduled Intramural practices and games each week.
Select Spring 2014Registration opens in 3 days
The U8 Select Team is designed to prepare the more advanced players for competitive soccer at the U9 travel level by providing additional touches, and polishing fundamental skills, techniques, and tactics of the game.
There will be separate Girls and Boys U8 Select Teams. Players will be selected via tryouts, to be held as noted below by the Coach (or coaches) and Trainer(s).
The Select Team operates in addition to the Intramural program, with one additional practice held Monday evenings and one additional game held on Saturdays through the Interleague program. As these games are through Interleague, some minor travel is required. The U8 Select Team will be coached and trained by both a Coach and the Red Bull Academy Trainers.
All U8 Select Team players are still required to participate in their regularly scheduled Intramural practices and games each week. In addition, the U8 Select Team may participate in tournaments at the discretion of the Coach (coaches) and Trainer(s).
The registration fee for the Select Team is $130 per season (Select Team will be offered in the Fall and Spring seasons), and ancillary costs for external activities such as tournaments, are in addition to the Intramural and Select Team registration fees, and will be the responsibility of the Parents of the U8 Select Team players.
Players will be required to register for the tryouts through the Sports Signup link below and pay for the cost of the season. If your child does not make the Select Team, you will be refunded the registration fee.
Tryouts will be held at the SYSL fields, and players will need to attend both tryout sessions.

Girls U8 Select Team: March 10 @ 5:00 - 6:00 PM & March 13 @ 6:10 - 7:10 PM
