Summer 2024 Rapids Development Center (June 6 – July 18)

Published on: December 15, 2023

We know how important it is for our young players to get lots of touches on the ball! This program is designed to build technical proficiency, give players a decision making framework consistent with the CRYSC player development plan, and to help them apply their skills and knowledge effectively in fun small sided games. At the end of the day, we want brave players willing to take risks. The Rapids Development Centers give them the confidence to do so in the presence of other like-minded peers who love soccer.

This six training program is designed to build a solid base of technical skills in the players and then allow them to apply those skills in small sided games for Recreational Players. Players start together in a group, each with a ball at their feet, while our staff coaches improve a variety of soccer skills such as different ways to change direction with the ball and moves to beat the defender (i.e. scissors, step over, cuts, etc.). Coaches will have time to work with players on their individual technique before breaking into teams for small sided games. Players will be encouraged to use their new skills in the game setting. The goal of the program is to promote creativity and bravery in our young players while they continue to develop as soccer players.
