Volunteer Coaches Needed!
Volunteer Coaches are the lifeblood of our organization. Simply sign up when you register your soccer star for the program. Both you and the children will benefit immensely from your involvement. Experience is not required. Your role will be to act in a hands on way to assist the Pro Coaches in executing the 30 minute training sessions and then, during 4v4 play, will run subs and coach 'em up! NYS will help you through this process as we focus on helping you get invovled and learn the game so you can enjoy the rewards of your hands on participation along with your children as they develop a lifelong appreciation for soccer!
2nd Grade Saturday Sessions
The 2nd grade program is focussed on building the skill foundation players developed in the 1st grade program and providing new players with key skills needed for a player's long term development. Every Saturday session runs for 75 minutes and is broken into two parts: Skill training and small sided games.
The first half of each session will be devoted to skill training with a very heavy focus on foot-skills (dribbling) and the introduction of proper passing and receiving techniques. The skills sessions will be conducted by professional coaches contracted by NYS and be roughly 30 minutes in duration. The skills training will follow a defined curriculum that builds on itself each week.
Following a brief transition, the second portion of each session will be devoted to a 4v4 game. Games will be refereed by an NYS assigned referee. Games will typically feature two (20) minute halves and a 2 minute half time. The small sided games are designed to promote involvement, maximize touches on the ball and application of the skills learned in the previous skills session.
