I like to be involved in my child’s development. How can I help?

We gladly welcome encourage our WCSA parents to share in the developmental process so they can support their child’s growth now and in the future. Here at WCSA, volunteerism, is one of our core values.  If you would like to get involved as a volunteer contact Mike Dwyer at coachmikedwyer@gmail.com.

Can you tell me a little more about the training curriculum and game format?

Training Format:  Players train in small groups to maximize their touches on the ball.  Each week we will have a training topic that focuses on specific sets of ball skills to help build a solid soccer foundation. The training exposes players to 1 player, 1 ball activities, athletic movement exercises, and small sided competitions. The students will learn about their role on a team relative to the ball, their teammates and the opponent.  They also gain game savvy…that is, understanding how to play the game given time, space, score, area of the field etc.

Game Format: Players will have a game day experience on Saturdays.  The primary format will be 4v4 or 5v5 (4v4 w GK). Teams will be formed and adjusted week to week.  

Curriculum:  Emphasis is on building a foundation of ball mastery, work ethic, sportsmanship, and enjoyment of the game that will last a lifetime. We help spark the growth mindset and creativity through guided discovery. Students will learn to become creative, skillful, confident, intelligent and respectful soccer players.

My child was born in 2014. Do you offer any classes for these younger ages?

Currently, we do not offer any programing for children this young but we will be offering it soon.

Can my child play in the local recreational league?

Yes, students can play in their local recreational league. The JDA is designed to be a stand alone experience, or a program that supports players looking for professional skill training.

Wasn’t the Junior Academy free?

Although it will not be free this year, we firmly believe that we provide the best value for quality around. Our Junior Academy program is the only program of its kind that is run by a USSF A licensed coach. The fee also implies the parent/students commitment toward long term development.
