In the modern day, children spend less time playing soccer in their free time than ever before. With this statistic in mind, Gusto Soccer believes that everything that can be done with a ball should be. Therefore, maximizing touches on the ball and ball mastery is key in everything we do.
Each session will work on the four pillars of the game in some facet:
Technical | We want to ensure our players have the basic competency and the building blocks to play the game successfully and with confidence.
Tactical | Depending on the age of the group tactical development may include: learning positional roles, game elements or systems of play.
Physical | Developing physical literacy is the main focus for our grassroot programs. As the players get older, the focus switches to more soccer specific movements.
Mental/Social | Having fun while being active is key in everything we do. Having a positive experience with sports is important and all of our coaches promote healthy living choices and encourage staying active for life.
