“I had a great time working on drills that improved my skills but were also fun. I got to meet new kids who were great friends that I won’t forget. And all the coaches were great and funny to be around whom truly cared about helping me become better in soccer and maturing in life to be ready for college.”
Nick Johnson, Player (New Jersey)
“Today was the first day for my kids at the (clinc) and they said it's the best and the most advanced (clinic) ever."
Zeina, U10 Parent
“The Sidekick Soccer Academy (Top Quality) Showcase helped me as a goalkeeper become a leader. Working with the (Sidekick) coaches taught me the importance of having light feet and being agile. Thank you for making me realize what I had to work on and get me ready for college."
Ryan Kobrenski, Player (Massachusetts)
"I would like to thank you personally for a great season with Sidekick Soccer. The coaches did a great job and I was able to utilize the tools shown with my players. They grew from the drills this year, some more than others but overall the drills worked well. As my players went on through the season I saw improvement and skill start to come out. I will continue to coach next season u-8 and u-10. I hope I was able to assist in every way for your coaches during these sessions. I hope we can work together in the future or I could help you in some way during the next season. I want to develop myself as well as my teams this fall. Once again, THANK YOU for this season as it was more successful overall."
Chris, Volunteer Town Coach
"I have nothing but glowing praise for how I felt the sessions went all season. It was great to get the session plans ahead to see what was coming, and so I could be prepared to assist ... Having a different coach with different activities and drills come in really helped me to keep things fresh and fun and it showed. The girls were competitive all season but really continued to improve right through to the last game. (Footy Fun Fitness) is great for experienced and new coaches alike, and we know that all the players are being exposed to at least some of the same fundamentals throughout the season."
Jeff, Volunteer Town Coach
Town Support is meant to serve the needs of the advancing community who wants to see their children participate at their highest possible level with professionally supported training environments.
Beginning in fall 2012, we began providing specialty goalkeeper training sessions in-season to the players in United Soccer of Auburn. A few seasons later and there were more than twice as players enrolled in this program - with a waiting list for more to join! In addition to goalkeeper training, we can improve players' performance in a particular position or skill set in any area of soccer study. 'Striker schools' are a popular option, but the choices are limitless; strength & conditioning, individual blow-by moves, individual defending, dominating the 2-v-1 situation, heading, throw-ins, free kicks (corner and penalty), etc.
Competing when others are not is what really begins the separation between players as they move up the ladder from elementary to middle to high school to college to professional. Want to be placed in a training program with other 'select' like-minded and similarly-motivated players? Our program can make the difference. The coaches, parents, and players will know and appreciate why.
Our professional coaches and age-appropriate training plans enhance volunteer-run organization's players both technically and tactically, while ensuring the most important aspect: FUN! Thousands of players have boosted their self-esteem and interacted with their peers from their community thanks to these clinics. Mainly intended for players aged 2 to 14, skill development increases exponentially and competition is high on a weekly basis.
Additionally, we have successfully hosted competitive youth tournaments, keeping in mind that the primary focus of a successful tournament is to promote the joy and fun of the game and to offer a safe venue for players to express themselves and develop their skills. We believe that the benefits of organized soccer are numerous and it is our mission to provide all players with 'Top Quality' soccer opportunities.
We provide the message of Long Term Player Development and believe that our coaches do, too! Sidekick is a NSCAA Member Club. To see our curriculum, click here.
