Rec Advanced: (U6-U12)

Rise Programs  /  Rec Advanced: (U6-U12)

Birth Years 2013 (U6) - 2007 (U11/U12)

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The RISE Rec Advanced program is designed for players who aspire to develop a strong technical foundation and reach a high level of  play. Rec Advanced players desire an engaging and consistent training environment with other like-minded players where training sessions are led by our licensed Recreational Staff Coaches.  This format allows us to deliver a consistent and age appropriate training that is focused on individual player development.

The RISE Rec Advanced program allows our licensed coaches to focus more on individual player development within the team concept. Players who would benefit from Rec Advanced are passionate about the game and want to improving their technical ability.

Will this be fun? Absolutely! We want our players to love the game. The Rec Advanced program will help players build their technical skills and confidence on the ball. This pathway is ideal for all players, especially those who aspire to play at the top competitive levels at RISE.

RECREATIONAL COACHING STAFF LED TRAINING SESSIONS
The RISE coach who leads a Rec Advanced training session may not always be the team’s regular coach. Keep in mind that coaches have different personalities, communication skills, and motivational methods that will often create different synergies because of the way each coach relates to a player and/or teams. Ultimately, we want as many RISE coaches as possible to get to know the player pool so that RISE can have a broader evaluation on each player. While we understand that parents may have concerns about not having the same coach at every training session, there are many positives for players to hear different voices and opinions.

POOL TRAINING PLAYER DEVELOPMENT BENEFITS
RISE uses the pool training concept to ensure players are consistently in high quality, coaching staff led, training environment. Pool training shifts the focus away from team development and prioritizes individual player development. During pool sessions, RISE players will be grouped together with players who have similar skill levels with the understanding that players develop in different stages. Increased competition, an improved training environment, and accelerated player development are all by-products of the pool training.

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS OF THE POOL TRAINING FORMAT:

  • Deliberate and consistent implementation of age appropriate training activities
  • The objective is to develop individual players, not teams
  • The specific needs of players can be addressed individually
  • By grouping players by birth year and ability, the developmental gaps between players is narrowed and meaningful competition is improved
  • Flexibility and fluidity ensure that players are consistently being placed in the right training environment
  • Improved club culture and spirit
  • Opportunities to build relationships and friendships across an age group
  • Allows young players to expand their social boundaries
  • Consistent evaluation and feedback provided by numerous members of the coaching staff

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 ADVANCED players with a fun, safe, and developmentally appropriate learning environment where our licensed 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 ADVANCED model 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 ADVANCED 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.
