For this age group, our coaches lead drills that target the improvement of large and fine motor skills, balance, and eye-hand coordination.

At this level, co-ed teams are formed and practice 1 day a week with 1 game a week (local games with other ESC In-house teams) with the focus on strengthening the basics while teaching more advanced skills appropriate for this age group. Our coaches lead activities designed to develop your child’s individual skills while building a greater appreciation for playing as part of a team. Since repetition builds familiarity and confidence, drills are repeated from week to week while gradually layering in more advanced skills instruction. Training, at this level, will include the involvement of a RUSH WI Soccer Staff providing hands-on coach and player development as per our collaboration with RUSH WI Soccer. While practice time activities are geared towards strengthening your child’s individual skills, game time emphasizes each player’s understanding of the structure of the sport, game rules, and how to compete as a team. The co-ed teams are formed with the goal of providing all players equal opportunities to play all positions. The teams play for 6-8 weeks in both Fall and Spring.
