2012 BEST Soccer LYS Clinics



BEST Soccer Clinics

Our curricula will help improve your child's soccer skills and knowledge in a safe, fun and educational environment.

Ages 5 & 6: Players learn the importance of a good warm up through fun games and activities. The coaches will develop the basic foot skills, passing and shooting through structured games with every player actively involved.

Players will also learn the basics of soccer match play via 3v3 tournaments focusing on positions, start of play and dead ball situations. The games and matches develop safe play, teamwork, communication and interest in soccer while still having lots of FUN!!

Ages 7 and above: As players learn and grasp the basic fundamentals of soccer, focus can shift towards the WHEN WHERE and WHY in order to get a better understanding of the game of soccer. For example, the player will learn WHEN to dribble, WHERE to dribble and WHY we dribble.

The coaches ensure that foot skills, passing and shooting are reinforced and developed through a variety of coaching activities. Conditioned games (4v4, 5v5 and 6v6) are used to focus on the WHEN, WHERE and WHY we perform certain skills. The players will also develop their positional sense and spacial awareness in a tournament played at the end of every session. Players will be divided by age and skill level to ensure an appropriate environment for a challenging and fun camp week.

In-Town Soccer Weather guidelines

When the weather is supposed to be rainy and cold there is a rule of thumb regarding when In-Town Soccer will play.

First, check the Lincoln Recreation Department web site. If the fields are open as of 7 a.m. on Saturday morning, then you should assume that soccer practice will be offered.

There are certain situations in which the decision is made to cancel soccer practice in advance, and generally that decision is announced via email on Friday night - sometimes late.

So in addition to checking the Lincoln Rec Dept web site on Saturday morning, check your email for a rain announcement.

So far it looks like we will be offering In-Town Soccer this Saturday morning.

Call or email Chris Perry, In-Town Coordinator, with questions:; home 781-259-1180; cell 617-821-1516
