Rec Grade School: (U6-U12)

Rise Programs  /  Rec Grade School: (U6-U12)

Birth Years 2015 (U6) - 2009 (U11/U12)

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Rec players in this program seek an engaging, stable, and consistent training environment where training sessions are led by licensed coaches. Having licensed coaches guide our youngest players allows RISE to consistently deliver age-appropriate training and drive individual player development at your player’s pace. As your player progresses through the program, you’ll notice a clear improvement in their basic technical skills.  Players who would benefit from the RISE Grade School are excited to play soccer and learn about new ways to manipulate the ball with their feet. Rec players will try to excel in an environment by showing the willingness to learn.

Developing Skilled and Creative Players

There are no shortcuts to player development; success requires a long term approach and commitment. Player success is directly correlated to the player environment a young athlete is exposed to. RISE provides it’s Rec players with a fun, safe, and developmentally appropriate learning environment where our licensed Recreational Coaching Staff can help players develop their technical skills in ways that encourage players to express their individual creativity without the fear of making mistakes. The RISE Rec encompasses both formal and creative learning methods to accomplish these goals. The program is designed to help the growth and development of young players both socially and technically so they are prepared to advance within the game at the level they desire.

Formal Learning - Fundamental Skills

The RISE Rec Program focuses on individual skill development, building confidence in players and maximizing player creativity by allowing kids to learn the game gradually in a fun, engaging environment. Our Recreational Coaching Staff wants players to feel comfortable and confident when they have the ball at their feet. To accomplish this, our coaches will help players build a strong fundamental skill foundation seasonally, by introducing proper ball-handling basics and technique through a series of age-appropriate activities that will grow progressively.

Creative Learning - Street Soccer

The street soccer concept is a learning method that emerged from playing soccer in the street. This informal and unstructured play format was essentially a neighborhood pickup game where any player could simply just jump in and play. By introducing street soccer to our weekly recreational programming, the RISE Recreational Coaching Staff will have the flexibility to mix players together by their play levels, regardless of their genders and age groups. This format will keep the games fresh, meaningful and engaging for our players.
