Summer is right around the corner and there are a number of ways your player can keep working at their game in between seasons. Summer doesn't have to be a no man's land of wondering what to do in between seasons.
I am big proponent that getting better at anything, whether it be soccer, a job, school work, etc. takes time and commitment. Our players are at an age where skill development is huge yet needs continuous work.
I wanted to share a number of opportunities available locally.
Edge Sports Academy in Mount Pleasant, Foothills Soccer Club in Youngwood, and The Pittsburgh Riverhounds East all offer training opportunities. These are primarily focused on footwork, agility, and understanding the game better. Open to boys/girls, all ability levels, and vary in price.
EDGE SPORTS ACADEMY - I've partnered with Edge to offer training sessions this summer. Details below. Learn more about Edge, here.
FOOTHILLS SOCCER CLUB - Although summer details are being finalized, typically most sessions run six weeks and average around $100. Strong emphasis on foot skills development.
Learn more about Foothills here.
RIVERHOUNDS EAST - The Pittsburgh Riverhounds offer two options this summer, a camp and month long training session.
Details and information are here.
Whatever you and your player decide, most importantly commit to something. I can guarantee your player will see tremendous growth not only in their game but their confidence, how they attack problems and challenges, and how to be a part of a team.
