Street Skills Academy

SSA-Fall2018

Dear Soccer Players and Parents,

We would like to inform you that Darren Laver from the Street Skills Academy will be delivering 6 fun, skill-based training sessions this fall/winter:

The Street Skill Academy

The Street Skills Academy is not like your usual soccer coaching. This 6 session program is about developing skill, creativity and the ability to perform in 1 v 1 and 3 v 3 situations. Our mission is not only to show players what it takes to be a truly great player, but to allow players to fall in love with the beautiful game. The program is all about creating an optimal learning environment where players can learn to express themselves in a non-judgmental atmosphere; these are the key attributes that all great clubs adopt throughout Europe. As part of the program we teach the players how to play in small areas, tight situations and be truly immersed in their learning, improving their decision making, their speed of thought and speed of play. Players will leave the program becoming inspired and motivated to enjoy the game of soccer.
