OVERVIEW

INTRODUCTION

The Pre-Academy Program will be the next step in the FC Copa Academy ladder of progression. The Program gives the players, at an early age, an opportunity to learn the technique, soccer coordination and movement in the precise and correct way.  Playing in a small sided environment will give the players more time and touches with the ball while also learning to work with teammates.  FC Copa Pre-Academy selections will consist of an evaluation process designed to identify players displaying a potential for future placement on an FC Copa Academy team.

PROGRAM GOALS

We aim to:

  • Foster a challenging and enthusiastic learning environment which will fuel player interest;
  • Create a training environment where there are opportunities for many successes which will strengthen players confidence
  • Introduce new moves and techniques which will expand creativity and player comfort with the ball;
  • Value player/family participation which will increase player/family desire to be part of future FC Copa teams
  • Create a path for young aspiring players to eventually join the FC Copa Academy program


TECHNICAL/MENTAL FOCUS 

  • Ball Skills - Passing/Receiving
  • 1v1 Attacking and Defending
  • Strive for 100% ball confidence
  • Self-confidence
  • Will to compete
  • Discipline (good practice habits)
