Wednesday, June 3 is our last night of Community Soccer practice for the U-10 and older age groups. We will continue this week’s theme of goal scoring using the following practice plan:
Please let us know if you have any questions.
June 1 will be our last Monday night practice of the season. On this night, the travel coaches come to the Community Soccer practices to show the players what a travel practice is like and to answer questions about the travel program.
The topic for the night is goal scoring. Practice plans are as follows:
Cutters Soccer Club offers travel opportunities for boys and girls beginning at the U-9 age group. Our U-9/U-10 program is called Junior Cutters and our full travel program starts with U-11 and goes through high school. (See descriptions online at http://cutterssoccer.org/prospective-player-information.)
Players can register via the Cutters web site at http://cutterssoccer.org/player-placement-registration.
We are trying a few new activities for Community Soccer teams on Wednesday night. These activities should keep the players moving and thinking, all while having a good time. Each activity for Wednesday includes a goal-scoring component. We will work on goal scoring skills at our next Monday practice.
We also allotted 30 minutes for the scrimmage time.
The U-8 age group will work on defending using the practice plan from last week: Week 7_U-8 — defending
The U-10s through U-14s will work on both heading the ball and goalkeeping: Week 7_U-10 through U-14 heading and goalkeeping
We understand some children may be intimidated by heading the ball. If they learn the proper technique at these age groups, they will gain confidence and will be less likely to get hurt in the long run.
Reminder: there will be games on Saturday, May 23, but no practice on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25.
This week the U-8s will work on defending and the U-10s and older will work on more team play and possession (with a bit of goal scoring).
Although it’s difficult to know the accuracy of the current weather forecast, please check the Karst Hotline at 812-349-2126, before heading to the fields. We will notify everyone of any weather-related practice changes via rainedout.com notifications as well.
