Competitive Programs and Teams

Competitive Programs and Teams with BYS

Competitive Soccer is for players ages 7-19 and registration opens at the end of July every year.  The competitive season runs from August 1st - July 31st each year.  Competitive Soccer includes teams that are formed based on player evaluations.   Player evaluations will take place during the school season for older players and during the indoor training sessions for younger players.

{    · Extreme Futbal Academy (EFA).  EFA is considered more advanced training and requires a larger commitment by players who want to train for up to nine months out of the year and travel to 4 large overnight metro tournaments.  Practices are 2 to 3 times per week in the spring and summer and once a week in the winter. Registration fees do not include travel expenses which may include lodging, meals and transportation costs.

Extreme Youth Academy (U10 players and younger)
The Academy philosophy focuses on the complete development of each player and provides an environment for boys and girls to learn through playing. The Academy Program emphasizes the process of technical development and gradual tactical understanding.
We feel the club should provide a variety of programming options for their players when they can including recreational and competitive play and that the Academy Program provides both the flexibility and structure to create a special program for boys and girls U10 and under.

 
Program Goals
  • To emphasize player development over team development and focus on the technical development of each child without the pressures of short-term wins/losses/results.  
  • To develop ball skill and decision making in the game. To create a fun and dynamic atmosphere for players.   
  • To help educate parents on how to understand the sport and their role as a support of their child’s development.
  • To prepare younger players for the eventual transition into competitive select soccer.
  • To help reduce travel and lower the expense for younger players and their families (you decide how many tournaments you want to attend)
  • We will divide players into teams for each tournament, the teams may not stay the same for each tournament.  The Academy philosophy is to learn to play soccer as an individual and as a member of a team not focusing on wins and losses
 

Training sessions:

Keep kids moving and work on technical skills.  Some tactics may come into play with players that are ready for that.  Practice to game ration should be 2:1  We will try and practice Tuesday/Thursday and have games The next Tuesday (divide them into teams and let them play)  Game time is game time, try and limit coaching on the field, see if they can figure it out in a game situation.  Sub players to talk to them just like in a regular game.
