Spring Programs Registration:
Our Quest Alliance spring programs are open to all players from area soccer clubs. Sessions are held at Harmony Middle School. We offer supplemental development programs for players in the First-Seventh grades. We aim to provide the most comprehensive technical instruction, allow your child to become a problem solver on the field, and create a stress-free game experience through our I-League matches. Our proven training methods and attention to detail set us apart from the competition. Thank you, John Regan, Director.
Saturday I-League: Designed for players fourth-seventh grade. Program Tuition $95.00.REGISTER NOW
TIMES AND LOCATIONS: 10:00-11:30 starting April 11 (6 weeks) at Harmony Middle School.
Our I-League gives the game back to the players. The I-league instills leadership qualities, promotes creativity and problem solving, and builds and inner competitive edge in our players. Here is how it works. Registered players are assigned an index card with their name on it. When they arrive, the cards are shuffled and random 6v6 teams are made. There are limited or no substitutes on the randomly selected teams, so maximum playing time is assured. The players compete in three or more shortened games each week and accumulate points for wins, ties, and even losses if their team scored a goal. At the end of each session the daily points are written on the back of their card. At the end of the season gifts are awarded to the players with the highest total points.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The players are in charge of organizing the teams and vote on a captain who also serves as coach. You can expect your child to improve leadership skills through this format. There will be improved creativity since the players are not afraid to make mistakes. There is no adult coach to correct them so they play with more freedom. Coaches are only there to monitor and supervise. We can’t teach our players to compete. They must acquire this inner drive and our I-league allows them to gain a competitive attitude without sacrificing sportsmanship.
Saturday Goal Scoring: FREE for players registered in I-League.
TIMES AND LOCATION: 9:00-10:00 starting April 11 (6 weeks) at Harmony Middle School.
PROGRAM DESCRITION: Designed for our ODFC West registered players and players registered for our I-League. If your child is interested in attending our Goal Scoring session only, please send me an email with your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Goal Scoring Saturday is our most popular and productive program. We witnessed many goals this past year that were a direct result of the lessons learned at our Saturday Goal Scoring hour. There are certain mechanics for placing the ball (accuracy), driving the ball (power), volleying the ball (out of the air), crossing the ball (assisting teammates), and controlling the ball in tight spaces (composure). Each week we pick a scoring technique and break the mechanics down to the smallest detail. Our training method allows maximum repetition of good scoring habits. We break players into small age-level groups so your child can train with their peers.
I am available for individual, small groups, or team training throughout the winter and spring seasons. Please call me at 703-431-3614 to discuss these training options for your child or their team.
All the listed Camps are directed and coached by John Regan. Additional staff will be used, if needed, to support the training philosophy. Many camps put the name of the director on the application, and delegate the training to less experienced staff. Our programs are smaller and guarantee a quality training environment. A full refund will be granted if your child is not completely satisfied with the training experience.
John Regan Soccer has been providing complete soccer education since 1991. Coach Regan will be actively involved in every training session. His reputation and attention to detail separate his training programs from the competition. We offer a complete money-back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with any of our programs. Your child will receive a high level of soccer training in a stress-free environment. We look forward to teaching your child the beautiful game.
