"The only way the United States will catch up to the rest of the soccer world is by starting young." U.S. Soccer youth technical director Claudio Reyna
Soccer in the 21st. century is a dynamic game requiring great individual skills, imagination, creativity and decision making.
FC Force ESS focuses on 4 of the most valuable aspects of skill development:
Ball Mastery - Versatility – Speed - Creativity (“MVSC”)
Speed & Dynamic play – We emphasize on the speed of the game and a player’s speed with the ball.
Ball Mastery – Strong individual techniques are essential for building the player's confidence in different game situations. Attacking techniques are emphasized to reflect strong individual ball control instead of just kicking and running.
Creativity – Our goal is to develop players with strong technical fundamentals who are able to create opportunities during games. Technically strong players have better peripheral vision which is important for making correct decisions instead of just getting rid of the ball. These players use one or more moves to create openings or better situations for passes.
Players are reviewed and evaluated on a regular basis which helps them achieve and strive for the best possible playing level.
Versatility - Playing soccer at a young age is about mastering the fundamentals of the game and developing all the necessary techniques. Since players often move to different positions, this forces them to be more active and knowledgeable in any area of the field.
During the learning process, all players need to make mistakes in order to progress in their skill level. At this young age, the result of the game and score is secondary.
When players become more physically matched, at approximately 13 – 14 years of age, the result of the game becomes of importance.
