Program Manual

World Class Premier philosophy follows a four-step developmental plan which can be likened to the building of a three story house:

THE FOUNDATION: TECHNIQUE (AGES 4 TO 8)

Good technique is extremely important in soccer and is central to a long, fun and successful soccer career. Being introduced to these skills at a young age gives players time to refine and perfect their technique. A solid technical foundation will quickly separate players from the pack as they grow. At this foundational age we will cover:

  • GOOD BALL CONTROL.
  • PROPER DRIBBLING AND PASSING TECHNIQUES.
  • DRIBBLING, FEINTS, AND TRICKS.

1ST FLOOR: PHYSIQUE (AGE 9 TO 12)

At this stage, practices will incorporate repetitive soccer-specific and functional body movements that will result in better body awareness. The checklist will include:

  • RUNNING TECHNIQUE.
  • QUICKNESS & AGILITY.
  • COORDINATION.
  • EXPLOSIVENESS.
  • BALANCE.
  • STAMINA.
  • SPEED.
  • PROPER STRETCHING TECHNIQUES.
  • PROPER WARM-UPS.

2ND FLOOR: TACTIC (AGES 12 TO 16)

Players will be evaluated on their skills set and then be guided and encouraged to play in a position where they will be the most successful. Through this, they will learn:

  • THE INS AND OUTS OF THEIR SPECIFIC POSITIONS.
  • THE ROLES AND DUTIES THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHEN ATTACKING OR DEFENDING, BOTH INDIVIDUALLY AND AS A TEAM.
  • DECISION MAKING ABILITY AND VISION.
  • DIFFERENT PASSING COMBINATION PLAYS.
  • LEARNING TO MOVE AND CREATE SPACE FOR TEAMMATES IN ORDER TO IMPOSE A POSSESSION STYLE OF PLAY ON OPPONENTS.
  • BALL CONTROL AND PASSING PRECISION.

*Players are encouraged to watch professional matches of teams with similar styles of play. They are to observe and analyze the decisions and movements of top tier professionals who play in similar, if not identical, positions on the field as them. 

THE ROOF: MENTALITY (AGE 16 TO 18)

A World Class Player needs to have a winning mentality. Preparation is key to having the confidence needed to execute and perform under pressure. Players will be pushed to Maximize:

  • GAME INTELLIGENCE.
  • VISION.
  • COMPOSURE.
  • LEADERSHIP.
  • COMMUNICATION.
  • DECISION MAKING.
