Mass Youth Summer Soccer Academy Returns
August 11th - 14th, 2014
Massachusetts Youth Soccer brings its Summer Training Center back to Martha’s Vineyard this August. The Training Center will provide the players with a fun, quality and competitive soccer environment from start to finish. We will conduct two (2) separate Training Centers.
Our High School curriculum has been developed to maximize your training time and to prepare each high school player for the Vineyarders High School 2014 Soccer Season. Individual and team development will be addressed in all 4 facets of the game with the aim toward helping your high school programs prepare for the upcoming season.
About the Mass Youth Coaches
All of the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Coaches on both the Youth and High School Training Centers will be USSF Nationally Licensed Coaches. Our Head Coaches hold the USSF “A” Licenses and include National, Regional and State Olympic Development Program (ODP) Coaches. Our Coaches are full-time, professional coaches, not simply college students working for the summer.
The curriculum is derived from the Massachusetts Youth Statewide Curriculum. Each morning is full of quality training sessions focusing on the 4 components of the game…technique, tactics, fitness and mental strength. The STC will also feature specific training for Goalkeepers. Youth Coaches are encouraged to attend to “shadow” our staff coaches. A great way to learn and improve as a coach…..and it is free.

MV SOCCER RECREATIONAL PROGRAM
The aims of MV Youth Soccer are to develop players and coaches in an environment that is fun for all. In keeping with this philosophy, and after a full year of careful study, research and discussions with leaders of the State Youth Soccer Association and other successful local youth soccer associations, we have decided to institute an academy format in which players participate within an age group and may move back and forth between groups acording to their progress and development. In making this move, we are hoping to introduce to the island the best practices that are used throughout the country and recommended by all state, national and international soccer organizations. The major objectives of the Academy are to create a more positive environment for player development and coaches' education. For players, the emphasis will be on improving each player's skill and technique. Games will be small-sided, where young players will be allowed to show their abilities in a competitive environment, learn to make on-field decisions without fear and increase their technical development by getting more touches on the ball. There will be no sitting on the bench in this format! We now have a trained core of licensed coaches who will use the Academy to mentor and develop new or less experienced coaches by introducing them to the latest and most effective drills and coaching techniques. Above all, the focus will be on the kids - this is a player-centered, not a coach- or spectator-centered environment, and we will do all we can to promote each player's development and to increase his or her enjoyment of the sport. The program for the younger players (U-6, U-8 and U-10) will now be under the direction of coordinators whose job will be to present the curriculum and to guide, assist and support the coaches who will be teaching the players. We also hope to limit the ratio of players to coaches to make the training sessions more manageable and productive, and less overwhelming to our volunteers. For further information, contact us at the link at the top of the page. Want to help, but don't want to coach? Let us know - we have a number of opportunities...fundraising, registration, snack table, etc. We need your help! Thanks.
