Impact Soccer Club is following the most advanced programs of US Soccer in developing an "Academy" for our youngest players. The aim is to teach the players, right from the start, how to play soccer correctly. Learning how to kick, how to dribble, how to go 1v1, in the earliest years and building new skills every year. All in a fun atmosphere while still indulging competitive spirits.
We use all our best professional nationally licensed coaching staff in the Academy to be sure the kids are taught in the best manner. Coaches will encourage the players to spend more time with the ball and watch higher levels of the game.
The U6/U7 age groups are in the initial stage of development. In this stage, the importance lies with the player’s relationship with the ball while playing 1v1. The main emphasis will be on offensive skills. Small-sided games, which have been overwhelmingly recommended by both European clubs and US Soccer, will be played on the same days as training. This builds more confidence in players and allows many more actual touches on the ball for each player, than full-sided "bunch ball" at the younger ages. Players will take risks with the ball at their feet and play with creativity. Players will work on their balance, coordination and agility with and without the ball, using ladders and hurdles. A focus of this age is to develop confidence and personality while having fun and gaining a love for the game.
