Hello Easton Soccer Families – Fall soccer is upon us!!
Easton Soccer is very excited to kick off the all-inclusive Easton Soccer Academy for players in grade 2 thru 6. These players will experience high level training and learn in a stress free environment. Our High School teams will kick off their quests to make the state tournaments. Please get out and support the teams. The high school games are a great experience for the entire family. In addition, we have the great fortune to have the New England Revolution right down the road – please get out and support the MLS!
Here is a little reminder about how we can all prepare for this upcoming season:
Start to get those touches on the ball outside – the weather is EXCELELNT. Go visit the kick wall at Oliver Ames and kick it against the wall a couple hundred times a day. Challenge yourself and make up games! Play one touch, two touch and even three touch against the wall. A fun game to play is wall ball with a friend or two. Try to juggle off the wall. Invite some friends over and get ready to PLAY some 3 v 3 to get back into the soccer mode! The fall will be a great chance for all players to take chances and take risks in the game!
Get out your sweatshirts and coffee mugs … fall training and games are right around the corner. Just like the spring season - start rehearsing your lines for pre-game and after game discussion --- here are some helpful hints: “What do you want to do for dinner after your game?... I hope you have FUN today!...Did you enjoy your game? …You looked so good out there working hard!... Let’s go get some hot chocolate!” These helpful hints and preparations will ensure a successful soccer season.
Start to plan your training sessions for the season and get your cones, bibs and soccer balls ready. You may want to leave the whistle at home. Set up your parent meeting to lay out the expectations you have for the season and recruit the parents to help with the team. Keep in mind that the fall provides a great opportunity for player development with NO PRESSURE. Please focus on playing all the players and maximizing their individual/team development. Remember that the most important thing you can do is let the kids be kids. Let them explore and be creative. Creativity is their BIGGEST asset --- let them use it. Finally – we have a large number of lesson plans and activities on our website – please review.
I look forward to seeing you all out on the pitch!
