At GSA, we emphasize three important things for U5-U8 players
- FUN! Players will want to play more when they are enjoying themselves.
- DEVELOPMENT! We use a unique approach to teaching even the youngest players.
- SPORTSMENSHIP! A key value that need to be taught to all of our youth playing sports.
When kids are small, we play small-sided games. As they grow, we grow the number of players on the field accordingly. At GSA, young players have more fun because we have fewer kids on the field at one time. This results in more movement, more touches on the ball, more dribbling, more scoring and more FUN!
Each team is led by a volunteer coach under the guidance of our Lead Trainer for Recreational Soccer. The trainer provides the framework for each practice which ensures that all players are being coached to learn fundamental soccer skills. The curriculum is based on the US Soccer Federation guidelines and incorporates methods used by the best your soccer organizations around the country.
