STA SUPER 6's and super 7's
STA, in conjunction with Mount Olive are pleased to offer a FREE team for Girls and Boys born in 2015 and 2014 as an introduction to the beautiful game of soccer.
During the STA practices players are taught basic soccer skills, then put into small sided (3v3, 4v4) games to find their own way to use them on the field. While traditional rec programs play 6v6 or 8v8, fewer players on the field ensures each player gets more touches on the ball, and has a bigger part of the game. Coaches will follow a curriculum so players are learning new skills each week, in the small sided games there is limited coaching - players are given the opportunity to experiment, try things, and find out what works. There are also no referees, and players keep score (or not), with an emphasis on trying new skills rather than winning. In addition, parents and supporters are kept back from the side of the field to create less of a gallery feel.
All our staff are qualified soccer professionals, experienced in working with this age group.
