West Elk Performance Academy Summer Program Camp

West Elk Performance Academy Camp 

REGISTRATION CLOSED 6/26/20 6:00 PM -Contact Kristin or Tom at westelksoccer@gmail.com to inquire about availbility.

WESA's 5-week outdoor summer program will provide players a template to work within the 4 corners of soccer, physical, technical, psychological, and social. This ALL NEW format for summer still provides the fun elements in soccer but now includes detailed and in-depth sessions that cover the 4 corners listed through a 5-week program. The 4-corner model is proven to help develop all-around players on and off the field through the fundamentals they practice and replicate within sessions using the 4 corners. Players will participate in 2 sessions a week for 5 weeks, with potential games against other mountain region clubs, if possible.

Session 1: The first session will mainly focus on the technical and physical corners, players will develop their technical side of the game, ranging from short passes, long passes, short-range finishing, scanning, first touch, body position to receive the ball, the technique of heading (age dependent), creating natural spin on the ball, 1v1/2v2/3v3 defending technique, goalkeeper catching, goalkeeper distribution, goalkeeper diving. The physical corner will include speed, agility, quickness, power, balance, coordination. This session will lean very heavily on developing the small aspects of the player that make the biggest differences in games.
Where applicable session 1 will be modified to fit social distancing restrictions and county restrictions.

Session 2: In this session we will focus on the nature of the game and the tactics inside it, hitting the social and psychological corners with a small overlap within technical and physical. Players will predominantly focus on applying the technique from session 1 in a challenging but safe environment. They will understand correct warm up and cool down, passing patterns, formations, on and off the ball decision making, movement on and off the ball, communication, dealing with offside (as a goalkeeper, defender and forward), keeping possession of the ball as a team, goalkeeper positioning on and off the ball, goalkeeper’s command of their area, set pieces (corners and free kicks) and teamwork. All these attributes are incredibly important in the modern-day soccer player.
Where applicable session 2 will be modified to fit social distancing restrictions and county restrictions.
