DC Stoddert Girls Academy - GIRLS ACADEMY SKILLS CLINICS - LAST SESSION NOVEMBER 4TH!
Girls Academy Skills Clinics - Overview
The girls weekly skills clinics enable U8 to U13 girls, not currently on either a developmental or travel team, to receive specialized soccer skill training from highly credentialed professional instructors in the Girls Academy. The training emphasizes age-appropriate skill development training in a fun, learning environment.
The GU8 clinics are being offered to promote skill development, and build familiarity with the Girls Academy curriculum. These sessions are being offered to prepare the GU8 players for the Girls Academy GU9 travel soccer try-outs at the end of spring.
The GU9-10 and GU11-13 sessions are being offered to provide cutting edge training methods for recreational players in the club. Many players end up discovering a love for the sport, developing strong skill levels, and sometimes even decide to try-out for travel teams. All players improve tremendously in skill and insight, and in soccer specific fitness and competitiveness.
Each session, the players warm-up with their balls in a skills-focused environment. These extra ball touches enhance ball control, confidence, dribbling touch, foot surface use, and coordination. Training exercises and small-sided games promote successful skill development, application, game understanding, decision-making and team work.
Clinics will be held at HARDY REC CENTER Field, on Foxhall Rd (NOT Hardy School).
Players should bring a ball and water to every session. They should wear shin guards and soccer shoes, and should wear athletic attire.
