Looking for additional professional training for your rec player? Arlington Soccer offers a variety of options for players that are looking for more:
This program is actually for players that are between the ages of three and five, and are not yet in kindergarten. The program focuses on body mechanics, a 1:1 player to ball ratio, and lots of fun. All coaches are paid professionals, and is a great introduction to the sport.
Pre-Academy and Academy Program
Mainly for 1st and 2nd graders (although this program is grouped by birth year, so there is flexibility). This program is for players who are playing on recreational teams and want additional training and playing opportunities. Coaches are all paid professionals, and training is done in a enjoyable environment focused on individual techniques. No specific GK training is provided.
Rec Goalkeeper Training
ASA offers a variety of free 3-week goalkeeper camps that run during the spring season. Each are tailored towards new players to the position, and are focused on individual techniques that are all taught by professional goalkeeper coaches. Four different options are always offered so your player will never need to miss any of their regular team practices.
For those beginner/intermediate goalkeepers that want more, we also offer 7-week paid clinics for the goalkeepers who want more consistent coaching in the position, for longer periods of time. Find what works best for you, and develop confidence in this specialized position.
Throughout the year, primarily in the summer and winter months, Arlingotn Soccer offers a variety of supervised drop-in soccer (also known as pick-up or street soccer) activities. Many of these occur in the off-season or on days that school is not in session but when many parents still have to work. Each location is staffed with ASA coaches and/or parent volunteers who help organize and supervise play.
Camps and Clinics
ASA offers a whole catalog of sprring break, summer, and winter camps for players of all ages and ability levels! We even have specific camps for goalkeepers only!
