SOCCER SENSE SUMMER PROGRAMS
This fun and fast-paced program is designed for already dedicated players, ages 12 to 16. Players continue to develop technical excellence and move towards tactical intelligence, all while physical conditioning and psychological toughness are achieved. Intense instruction is maximized over two weeks demanding all you have, sometimes more than you think you’ve got. Coach Williams and his staff guarantee it will make you a better soccer player.
Do you have what it takes to be the best? Do you have the ambition, commitment and dedication? Players in the Achiever Program combine their passion with the new skills that they acquire to take their game to the next level. This fun-filled program raises the bar by introducing players to a more competitive environment based on advanced gameplay. This is the most challenging program for young players, ages 8 to 11 years old, who have already fallen in love with the game of soccer and want to excel to their highest potential. Players gain domination of the ball through a week’s worth of technical challenges and tactical training. Players for the Achiever Program must have already participated in a minimum of one – twelve (12) week Progressive Player Development Program.
Striving for excellence is the theme of this week-long program for players 8 to 11 years old. Players fall in love with the game as they begin to gain mastery of coordination in dribbling, passing, receiving, heading and scoring – in short, domination of the ball.

The Soccer Sense coaching team will let you “see” in your mind’s eye just how and when to execute techniques already in your repertoire.
