2018 ASA Winter Training Academy Registration is Open

Hello everyone.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.

With 2018 approaching quickly, our Soccer Winter Training Academy’s registration is now open. Here is the link to register:  https://leagues.bluesombrero.com/Default.aspx?tabid=1173488

The program will begin on January 21 and will take place each Sunday afternoon concluding on March 11 at the Avonworth High School and Middle School Gyms.  Although the exact times for each age group are not yet firmly set, there will be sessions beginning at noon and concluding at 6:00 each Sunday.  Each player will get an academy t-shirt with our new Avonworth Soccer logo included in the registration cost.

Registration Cost is $75.  There is a $10 discount for each additional sibling.  (Child 1 = $75, Child 2 = $65, Child 3 =$55 and so on.)

As for the time of each session, it is ASA’s intention to have the U6 players start their session at noon with the U8’s following at about 1:15, U10’s at about 2:30, etc.  The details of the exact time frames will be set as registration approaches completion.

As for the soccer program itself, there will be practice sessions teaching and reinforcing skills using drills and small sided games at the beginning of each session.  Each session will then conclude with Futsal games using Futsal rules (essentially soccer on a basketball court with some modified rules emphasizing touch and control for those who are not familiar).  Although not firmly defined, there will likely be an even split between practice time and games.

Each player will need to wear sneakers or indoor soccer shoes (no cleats), shin guards, and soccer socks over their shin guards.  Also, each player will need to bring their soccer ball (it does not need to be a futsal ball) and a water bottle.

Our winter session was a great success last year and we expect it to be even better this year.

Merry Christmas and Let’s Go Lopes.
