The overall objective of the program is to keep it simple and appropriate and is designed to help time-challenged coaches. The program assists all participants in developing a love for the game by providing sessions that are enjoyed by the coach and developmentally-stimulating to the children.

Our Junior RCL program participates in the Southern Puget Sound area with other Regional Club League (RCL) member clubs at the U-8 and U-9 ages. As part of a "skillls development" structure, our staff employs a Building Out of the Back (BOB) strategy as an overarching development piece.

Fitness Program

In our methodolgy, soccer professionals try to incorporate multiple components of soccer into every practice session; the idea of economical training is a part of how coaches "think" when they design a practice plan and also when they plan a training cycle. However, during the mid-to-late teen years isolating fitness is also a major factor in the Advanced stage of traing (U-16 and up). The summer training cycle below is an example of how to create a mesocycle with a focus on aerobic soccer endurance, local muscle endurance, agiltiy and flexibility.
