Online registration for Fall 2020 Development Academy (DA)
The Portsmouth City Soccer Club DA is designed for boys and girls in born in 2013 and 2014 as an introduction to club soccer. The goal of the DA is to instill basic skills and principals of the game to our players, parents and coaches through fun activities and small sided competition. By creating an environment that teaches without the fear of trying or the monotony of “drills”, we strive to develop a love of the game within our players that will ultimately become a passion that will last a lifetime.
Practice sessions may not look like the soccer as we know it but the object is to get every player as many touches on the ball as we can in one hour to develop balls skills. Through certain activities we will be introducing basic positioning concepts that will encourage players to try different aspects of the game like attacking and defending but will not restrict them to one or the other. Specific tactical instruction will be very light, letting the game do the teaching.
The practice session
As already noted, every session should be dynamic with a central focus on having the players touch the ball as many times as possible. Recall also that we are also developing body coordination so we will be combining different types of movement with the ball.
- Sessions are 75 minutes.
- The first 30-45 minutes is designated for fun soccer games. Each activity should last no more than 10-15 minutes each to keep the attention of the players. Water breaks between each activity.
- The second 30-45 minutes will be designated to 3v3 or 4v4 match play.
