NO DOGS ALLOWED AROUND THE SOCCER FIELDS

Updates

This Tuesday 6/7 night at 7pm we will have pick up soccer also called street soccer. We invite all kids to come to Monroe Crossings park and play.
We will split kids up by age and then let them play. No coaching. No Refs. Your kids doesn't have to be apart of our program.
This is to have the same feel as a group of kids getting together and going out to play. Crazy I know.....
See article below on benefits of Street Soccer. The game itself is the greatest teacher.
We will have a board member there to help organize it. We may ask a couple of adults to help monitor the kids but NO COACHING.

Kids need to bring shin guards, water, white shirt and a dark shirt. We will also have scrimmage vests available.
Meet at the concession stand area.
Parents of younger aged kids (9 and younger at least) please do not just drop your kids off and leave without another adult there to be responsible for them.
Parents of older kids make sure they have a way of contacting you if you leave.

This should last anywhere from 60-90 minutes depending on age.
If it rains we won't do it.
If there is good turn out then we will do it again every Tuesday night.

Don't forget to signup up for Fall Soccer- Online registration closes on 6/5 and please don't wait till the last minute.
Thanks, Monroe Soccer

Some of the benefits that can be found by playing street soccer include:

  • The game is the teacher rather than a coach – players will learn from their own mistakes and will not be afraid to make them as they sometimes are when a coach highlights their mistake.
  • Small sided games will help players with their control and ability on the ball – tricks, showmanship and ball skills are encouraged and highlighted in the small sided games that street soccer creates. Players confidence and ability on the ball will grow.
  • Communication will flow easier when a coach isn’t providing most of the communication from a sideline – in a game without adult supervision, players will be forced to communicate instead of relying on a coach to communicate and share information.
  • The basics of tactical play are easily taught in small sided games – depth, height and width are all learned from small sided situations. Players will begin to learn how to support, transition from attack to defense and creating attacking movement are all seen the more players play in small sided games.
Pick up soccer or street soccer is a great way to encourage player growth. We encourage all of our players to find times to get together and play outside of normal practice and game times. Players will develop skills that they may not learn in their practices and perfect those abilities they have worked on tirelessly in practices. My encouragement is to try and find time to let your player play in a less structured environment, especially in off seasons and slow times, to help encourage your players love for the game and growth in the sport of soccer.
