Scenes from our Futures Weekends

Futures

A3 Soccer is offering Futures Soccer to players born between 2012 and 2015.
Champions League Soccer players born between 2014 and 2015. The Champions League will allow our young players to get an introduction to the world's favorite sport. Our own version of the World Cup, for players born between 2012 and 2013, will introduce players to regular fields, referees, goals, and positions. Both will emphasize learning, development, and fun!

Champions League Soccer

A recreational soccer league for 2014 and 2015 players!

As many of you know, due to feedback from parents and coaches, we restructured the Champions League to incorporate more professional training. This was done to improve the skill-building experience for all players. We are confident this new approach has enhanced the experience for parents, coaches, and players. The teams conduct their clinics and games every Saturday morning. The clinic runs 35-40 minutes and immediately tranisitions into a ~20 minute game with teams matched up against each other. The clinic is conducted by a professional Challenger trainer who demonstrates "games" for the teams. Coaches are expected to learn the games so they can reinforce the lessons learned during practices. The new format allows inexperienced coaches the opportunity to develop coaching skills on the field. This will enable both the coaches and players a fun, interactive time with their teams with a high level of instruction. The players and coaches will stay together throughout the session.

Teams will be provided team jerseys to represent their Champions League team - Manchester, Inter, Liverpool, Real, etc.

World Cup Soccer

A recreational soccer league for 2012 amd 2013 players.

Games and practices are in the Crofton area. Practices are one night a week and games are on the weekend (Saturday morning). The season will last approximately 9 weeks. League play features recreational soccer with games played on a short-sided field, 7v7, goalkeepers and referees. Game scores and statistics are not kept. The emphasis is on fun and transitioning to county/travel soccer.

Teams will be provided team jerseys to represent their international World Cup team - USA, England, Germany, Spain, etc.
