CVSJ is offering Friday night small sided games, to be held at San Jose City College Football field. This is open to all current Central Valley players (Rec, Select and Elite programs), born between 2006 and 2012.
These clinics will consist of a technical warm up of 10-15 minutes, followed by small sided (4-7 per team), tournament-style games of 5-6 minutes each. There will be 2-3 round-robin games, followed by semi-finals and a final "World Cup" match. The teams will be mixed with all ages, genders and skill levels playing together on a team. Great effort will be put into creating balanced teams vs keeping friends together. It's good for kids to play with other players sometimes!
Elite coaches will give some guided questions before each game and also some tips after. There will also be a few games where each team huddles without a coach, providing players the opportunity to develop and discuss their own game strategies.
Please be sure to RSVP for each session, no later than 8pm the Thursday night prior. We use this information to determine how many coaches need to attend to maintain effective player/coach ratios. All of the kids will have a better experience if we know how many players to expect.
All players must wear cleats and shin guards and bring their own water.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. I look forward to seeing you under the lights!
