The U9/U10 Academy program is the transition between the recreational side of the Dakota Alliance Soccer Club and the competitive side. The program offers our U9/U10 players the opportunity to be exposed to a better soccer environment that will enhance their skills and their approach to the game. The U9/U10 Academy is a year-long program, broken up into to three different seasons and will be held at the Harrisburg Training Complex and the Sanford Fieldhouse. Players have the ability to sign up for the entire year or for the different seasons offered.
The objective of Academy training is to provide our players with an environment that promotes learning, creative thinking, problem solving, skill development and love for the game.
We have an age appropriate curriculum in place that will equip our players with the fundamental skills that they will need to carry with them as they continue to develop. For this reason, our focus at these ages is to develop the individual and small group skills of our players.
The 3 main components of our age appropriate curriculum are:
U9/U10 Age Appropriate Training Cirriculum - PARENT EDUCATION POWERPOINT
Smaller sided games, under differing conditions, promote the qualities that we are looking for in our youth players by allowing for more touches on the ball, more creativity with the ball, more individual problem solving in the game environment.
U9/U10 Academy games will be scheduled on a rotational basis, which will include tournaments as well. All games will be supervised by DASC professional staff coaches. The objective of every game is to promote and reinforce the skills and techniques worked on in practice during the week. While winning and losing is part of a soccer game, the main focus is the individual and technical development of the players in a competitive environment. Our primary concern is to ensure that our young players have a strong foundation in the basic soccer movements and soccer concepts that they can build on as they grow as players.
