YUFC is excited to offer high level, youth developmental soccer training clinics to girls and boys. The Club focuses on providing an optimal environment for its young players to excel in their soccer development. Our coaches understand that the learning curve for these young players, in regard to their skill development, is at its greatest during these formative years.
The YUFC experience for this age group will provide a positive and competitive environment where players can improve their individual ball skills.
Emphasis will be on the following:
Helping players become comfortable with the ball
Learning how, where and when to take a positive first touch with the ball
How to attack space and relieve pressure
Improving players vision in “seeing more of the field”
One on one attacking skills
Playing in small spaces under pressure
Explosiveness with the ball while changing speeds and direction
