Weather
The sessions are always on as long as the field is open (even if it snows- it's fun to play in the snow and we will as long as it's safe) so no matter what the weather, we'll be ON as long as the field is open!

It's always worse for the coaches than the boys and girls, who end up sweating and taking layers of clothing off!  Our intention is to practice as long as it's safe and give the boys and girls the opportunity to continue their progression in the game. 

F.A.Q.

Q: What is the expected commitment? Do I have to give up on other sports? 
A: The Stoddert Juniors is aimed at the long term development of players, which requires a commitment to consistent practice. This does not mean players cannot player other sports. Players in these young ages are encouraged to play other sports for more well-rounded development.  

Q: What will the coaches focus on in training? 
A: Individual Player Development. Technical training will be a priority in order to develop the fundamental skills necessary to be successful in later years. Long term skill development is essential. Coaches will introduce tactical decision making, physical development, psychological development while all the time developing a love of the game of soccer. 

Q: Do players need to wear anything specific to practice? 
A: Players are asked to wear comfortable sports clothes, soccer socks pulled over their shin pads, and indoor soccer shoes/tennis shoes as well as bringing and inflated size 3 ball and water to each practice. 

Q: What does the Juniors Program expect from parents? 
A:    
1. Arrange to get your child to training and play days on time 
2. Be supportive of your child and fellow Stoddert Juniors members  
3. Leave the coaching to the coaches (cheer, but DO NOT COACH)        
4. Encourage them to get the ball out on their own free time

Q: Can a player do both the juniors program and the recreational program at the same time?
A:
Yes, players not only can but are encouraged to stay with their recreational team while participating in the juniors program. Games will never conflict, and if a practice does, the player has the option to choose which practice they attend.

Outdoor Winter Juniors Program

This winter junior's training is set up to help the boys and girls improve all facets for their game, continuing the instruction from the fall juniors sessions. Every year, the winter sessions, prove to be a huge success and the players benefit massively from continuing to play over the winter months.  With access to goals, on a consistent surface, under lights with quality coaching the players have a blast and it's a great way to prepare for the Spring season and improve some important skills. 

Winter training consists of two practices a week and a play day on Sunday's. This replicates a regular soccer season, but all sessions are on floodlit turf and play day's are local amongst ourselves.

This program is designed for Under 7 and Under 8 players who love the game, want to improve, and have fun in the process! This program will be led by professional coaches. 

Where : Every session is on turf. 

All Monday and Wednesday sessions are outside under lights at Jelleff  3265 S St, NW Washington, DC from 5-6pm

All Sunday sessions are outside at Palisades Rec Center  5200 Sherrier Place, NW Washington, DC from 12-1pm

Weather The sessions are always on as long as the field is open (even if it snows- it's fun to play in the snow and we will as long as it's safe) so no matter what the weather, we'll be ON as long as the field is open!


We're looking forward to another great winter and hope everyone is excited to be a part of it!
