These clinics are held on Friday nights during the spring and fall outdoor season and are open only to players registered with WCSA for that season: Future Stars Juniors focuses on the U7-U9 players, and Future Stars is for the U10-U12 age groups. Each one and a half hour session focuses on developing age appropriate skills, with the aim of improving core soccer proficiencies such as dribbling, passing, receiving and finishing. We also run specialty clinics for goalkeepers.
The program is designed in a manner in which each week previously learned skills are reviewed, new skill sets are learned, and small-sided games are played with encouragement to use the skills worked on.
All clinics are designed and run by our Director of Coaching, David Cordero de Jesus, with the help of experienced coaches.
Here is the typical agenda for our Future Stars clinics:
Week 1 Ball manipulation: dribbling for possession/shielding
Week 2 Dribbling away from pressure: turns
Week 3 Dribbling to beat an opponent: forward moves
Week 4 Receiving: first touch away from pressure
Week 5 Passing: Proper accuracy and pace
Week 6 Shooting & Finishing
