the Spokane Soccer Academy Youth Advancement Program
April 13, 20, 27 & May 4 @ various Locations (participants will be given a schedule)

Purpose:
To provide U-8 and U-9 age division SYSA-S registered recreational players an opportunity to receive quality advanced training at no cost to family.

Participant Equipment:

Each player will receive an Spokane Soccer Academy (SSA) training t-shirt, water bottle and stickers. Participants will be required to train in their SSA training shirt and will be encouraged to wear black shorts and socks.

All participants must wear shin guards and cleats.

Players will not be allowed to play with jewelry and casts must be wrapped.

Registration Process:

SYSA will distribute an e-mail advertising the program. Participants will register via the SSA website. At the time of registration participants will indicate player shirt size.

Because this is a first year program, participation will be limited to 48 boys and 48 girls.  From those registered SYSA will conduct a random drawing and the results will be posted to the Spokane Soccer Academy website on 04/01/08.

Participants will be required to pick up their registration packet and training gear at the SYSA office. This registration desk will be manned by an SSA employee available to answer questions.

Packets will include training shirt, stickers, water bottle, program overview (what to expect), SSA Eating for Success Training Guide and liability waiver.

Participants will NOT be allowed to register the day of the event. However, they MUST turn in their liability waivers the first day of the event or the child cannot participate.

Camp Flow :

Players must arrive in training gear.

Each “group” will be defined by the color of their training shirt. Home bases will have a matching colored flag.  Each group will have a “home” coach, but round robin training will occur as participants move through multiple training stations.

There will also be a combination administration - first aid tent, Gatorade table and music area.

The program will incorporate music, and Jock Jams will be playing as the participants arrive.

Participants will be expected to juggle ONLY prior to the session beginning.  Under no circumstances should they be shooting on goal.

Each Academy session will begin in a large group setting. The program is designed to be holistic and will embrace the Heart, Mind, Body training motto of the Academy. These training principals will be reiterated throughout the training program.

The group setting will be brief, entertaining and be used to promote the SSA training values highlight the day’s topics and introduce the “Club of the Week”.

The Club of the Week promotion will give a coaching representative from each SYSA Club the opportunity to be formally introduced during the group session. This coach or coaches are invited to move throughout the training fields. They are welcome to assist selected players master the techniques being taught in any of the circuits. Club coaches attending are strongly encouraged to wear gear identifying the associated Club.

In addition, Club coaches who are not associated with the designated Club of the Week are encouraged to observe training sessions. Again, we are encouraging them to wear identifying gear.

The groups will then break up and move into their home areas. The home training areas will be defined by a colored banner that matches the color of participant’s training shirt. Each area will have a specific focus (i.e. foot skills, shooting technique, tactical play). Coaches will specialize in their home area and teach the same program as players rotate. Players will rotate every 15 minutes.

At the end of the training session we finish as we started in a large group. During this final gathering the Club of the Week representative will be asked to name the week’s SSA Outstanding Participant, who may receive a jersey from the Club of the Week (if the Clubs are willing to do this).

We will have a junior coach roaming the pitch taking pictures. These will be posted to the SSA website following the training program where kids and parents will be able download those they wish to keep.

We may also produce a short wmv film to be posted on the site for download as well.

Other-Benefit Program:
Each week will benefit a local charity and participants will be asked to bring an item to donate to the charity. Beneficial charities will include Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, Second Harvest Food Bank, Ogden Hall and the “Cleats for Kids” program.
