If the weather holds and the fields are open, we will focus on possession this week. For the younger players, we talk about cooperating with each other. For the older age groups, we discuss keeping (possessing) the ball by making good decisions with passes and moving to get in the best position to receive a pass.
Here are the practice plans for the week (we originally had these plans for last week, but due to weather issues and fall break, we saved them for this week):
Last we checked, there was a 40 percent chance of rain for Monday. Please remember to check the Karst Hotline, 812-349-2126, before heading to the fields. Also, sign up for text and email alerts via http://www.rainedout.com.
Next Saturday, Oct. 25, is Kohl’s Cup (rescheduled from Oct. 18). Emails will be sent this week with more information regarding format, locations and game schedules.
This week we will focus on passing skills (we will switch to passing in relation to team possession next week). The practice plans are available below
The topic this week is defending. We have a few videos for your review in the practice plans. We believe these videos will demonstrate the coaching points we are covering this week:
Practice plans for Monday, Sept. 22:
We have a lot of activities, so please switch through them at the pace that works best for your teams.
On Wednesday, Sept. 24, the U-10s, U-12s and U-14s will continue to practice defending technique and tactics.
Week 3 Wednesday practice plan: Week 3 (Wednesday): U-10 through U-14 more defending
We will emphasize dribbling concepts for Week 2. We want the players to be comfortable with the ball, to protect it and to be creative with the moves they use to beat a defender.
For our first Wednesday night practice, we will use the same practice plan with new activities for all age groups. The activities are appropriate for all ages, with the understanding that the players will participate to the best of their ability.
The weather forecast for Wednesday, Sept. 10 calls for thunderstorms in the late afternoon to evening. Please call the Karst Farm Park Hotline at 812-349-2126 before coming to Karst and sign up for email and text updates via www.rainedout.com. We are able to update the RainedOut text and email messages the fastest.
We are excited about our first practice and getting to know everyone on our new teams!
Here are the practice plans for Monday, Sept. 8:
Looking forward to seeing you at the fields!
Monday, June 2 is our last practice night of the season. All age groups will focus on goal scoring. The Cutters travel program coaches will be at practice as well, to work with the players and to answer questions about our travel program.
In addition, we are offering a summer program on Monday nights for Community Soccer players. The best way to describe it is “organized pick up games.” We will help the players get organized by age group and then let them play. The club will provide trainers to monitor the activity, but the players will make the big decisions during the games. Registration for this program is required. Visit http://cutterssoccer.org/news/summer-community-soccer-registration for more information and to register.
Below are the practice plans for Monday:
Thank you for a wonderful season! We look forward to seeing you again this summer and in the fall. The fall season is slated to begin in early September.
The topic for this week is possession or cooperating for younger players. We will focus on the movement of the players without the ball, in addition to the skills needed by the player with the ball to recognize the open player and make a good pass.
Remember, although we will have games on Saturday, May 24, we will not have practice on Memorial Day, May 26. Our last Monday night practice is scheduled for Monday, June 2.
This Monday we will work on passing and receiving with all of the age groups. Proper technique is important, as is communicating with teammates.
Please review the following plans and let us know if you have any questions:
