After School Plus teaches your children how to play soccer with a concentration on a variety of areas, including:
Dribbling a ball. Students will spend most of their time dribbling a soccer ball and coaches will demonstrate the proper techniques of dribbling (Each player will need a ball.)
- Trapping a ball with a child’s foot, chest, thigh, and head
- Kicking a ball properly. It is shocking how children who have played soccer for many years can not kick a ball properly!
Students will learn about goal kicks, corner kicks, indirect, direct kicks, off sides etc. Players will learn about runs, positions and spacing
After School Plus has beautiful irrigated Bermuda practice fields on site.
After School Plus makes the game fun! Students who are 5 and 6 do not have a long attention span so we keep practice moving by playing games with a concentration on ball skills but allowing for lots of fun.
Even with older kids, we keep the practice moving with a concentration on technique (ball skill) so that when your child has the foundation of soccer skills they can become a good player. Also, in practice, we try to refrain from lines as much as possible so that players are constantly moving.
After School Plus teams play in the CESA recreation league. The upstate is very fortunate to have such a great soccer club. They have professional trained coaches and beautiful fields. It is well organized and it gives your child the opportunity to become the best player he or she can possible become. Whether your child only wants to have a fun time playing soccer or become a good high school player or college player, CESA gives your child the opportunity to reach their potential.
