Sudbury Youth Soccer is pleased to offer several soccer program opportunities to our players each winter! The current offerings are listed below by grade levels. We want to emphasize that they are entirely optional, and do not count in any way in the player evaluation and placement process.
The current winter indoor programs schedule can be found by clicking here.
Soccer FUNdamentals: K & 1st Grades:
Played indoors at the Field House (Sudbury), Soccer FUNdamentals offers players in K and 1st grades the opportunity to play soccer and develop core motor skills while learning ball mastery, receiving, ball striking and exciting skill moves during the offseason. There will be separate boys and girls sessions. The New England Revolution Academy coaches will lead these sessions.
Winter Development Schools: 2nd – 8th Grades (Town and BAYS players):
The Winter Development School is a performance based technical training environment for all players from 2nd grade to 8th Grade. The sessions will cover the technical breakdown of ball mastery, skill moves, receiving, passing, defending and finishing. These sessions are for players that are looking to be challenged in a positive, player-centric environment. The session are co-ed and we strive to balance the rosters 50/50 between boys and girls. The New England Revolution Academy coaches will lead these sessions.
Winter Academy Squad Training: 5th – 8th Grades (Academy Squad players):
The Winter Academy Squad Training is a performance based technical training environment for all players on the Academy Squads. The sessions will cover the technical breakdown of ball mastery, skill moves, receiving, passing, defending and finishing. These sessions are for players that are looking to be challenged in a positive, player-centric environment. The New England Revolution Academy coaches will lead these sessions.
Futsal: 3rd – 8th Grades:
Futsal is a game played between two teams of five players on each side. One of the five players is a goalkeeper who unlike soccer/football is very active out on the field. The game of futsal is played on a hard court surface with flat lines on it like a basketball court for the boundaries. It is played with a smaller ball (futsal ball) that has less bounce than a regular soccer ball. To be great at the game of futsal you need to have great improvisation, technique, creativity, ball control and heightened awareness.
Indoor Soccer “Winter Academy Games”: 3rd – 8th Grades:
The Winter Academy Games are an opportunity for all 3rd through 8th graders to play indoor soccer and be led by a professional coach from the NE Revolution Academy. The program will focus on creating an environment to foster the development of technical and intuitive players who can perform under pressure.
The Winter Academy Games are held at Marlborough Fore Kicks. The program is a 9-week session plus one playoff week. Players play one 50 minute match each week, proceeded by 30-minutes of pre-match instruction on field and in the classroom. Specific game times will change each week but will always be within the time window of 4-7pm. Once the teams are established the schedule was posted by Forekicks for the whole season, so it as easy to figure out carpooling if needed, etc. It took the uncertainty out of the equation, which participating players parents greatly appreciated!
Any group of 10 or more players that wish to play on a team together can register – this way each player will be guaranteed a spot. Once 10 or more players are committed, a parent or coach should contact Ross Duncan, with the list of players who wish to play together. Individuals who sign up without a group of 10 can still participate if spots are available. All players that sign up will be charged and a spot will be held providing we can form a team. If we are unsuccessful in creating a full team in your child’s age group, you will be issued a complete refund.
