Be Ahead of the Game teaches the game of soccer to players of all skill levels aged 4-10. The soccer curriculum is designed to enhance each player’s knowledge of the game through technical, tactical, physical, and psychological/psycho-social development.
Group clinics meet weekly during fall, winter and spring sessions that run for about 7 weeks. Each group is assigned a dedicated coach for the entire session. Coaches provide a fun, safe, positive learning environment to help players develop confidence and thrive both on and off the field.
Weekly practices focus on basic skills beginning with the proper way to strike a soccer ball as well as dribbling, passing, trapping, defending, shooting, throw-ins and positioning. Players will apply their skills during games held on weekends.
Designed for skilled and passionate players aged 6-10, the Junior Elite program focuses on the development of fundamental skills and an introduction of structured team play. At the Elite clinics, coaches ensure that players learn technical, tactical, physical, and psychological skills. Clinics emphasize technique training intended to strengthen dribbling, passing, ball control, and creativity. The clinics help players achieve their maximum potential at their own individual pace.
The Junior Elite program runs in the fall, winter and spring. Players train in small groups assigned based on age and ability.
Futsal helps players develop their foot skills and enables players to remain sharp throughout the winter months. Players will be grouped based on age and ability. Game times are typically held on the weekend.
Be Ahead Of The Game operates out of public facilities. Check the organization’s website for the most up to date program schedule and locations. Previous sessions have been held at Dexter Southfield School, Rivers School, and Williams Elementary.
