The CBSC Academy Program is open for a player’s date of birth years which fall between 2008 – 2011. The academy is focused on creating a structured training curriculum allowing players to train, learn and enjoy the game with a high emphasis on a growth within soccer both on and off the field in a positive environment.
Our goal is to introduce children, parents and families who wish to experience a developmental and organized training program. Our progressive training allows your child to build a solid base in their individual development. The focus areas will be in individual technique in the following; 6 surfaces of success, close ball control, ability to command the ball, creating a foundation for the future learning and development through learned technical skills, moves and turns, solid passing, and passing techniques.
These skills will be taught by our academy coaches in weekly training sessions. It is during the training sessions our coaches will teach, encourage and correct players. The players will then compete in organized games with other academies where they will be encouraged to work on the skills they have practiced and learned. All coaching in games will be through positive reinforcement on current skill focus rather than concentrating on a winning mentality. We want our players to be confident and comfortable in express themselves and learning through success and failure in games.
Your child will follow a club wide curriculum as they progress through the academy with their development tracked. Our goal will be for every player to take significant steps in their individual improvement while inside the academy.
We will also educate within the academy setup. Our education will not only be focused on player development, we will also use the academy to train young referees and parents through games, and presentations. You are entrusting the development of your child with us and we want to make sure that we keep you up to date with our methods, focus and direction.
It is to be noted that children develop at varies rates of speed and time in not only sport, but all aspects of life. The unique approach of the academy is to have a club roster at each age group with no formal teams. Each week, we as a staff will assess and create the teams to compete for the weekend games or tournament play. Again, we want to create a competitive environment where your child can develop through a mixture of success and failure. In doing this we will also expose your child to more coaches, and more experiences on the field.
