How:
Please complete the registration form on the VSA website. Once we receive your information, we will be in contact with you about matching you up with a trainer and/or other group members. It is best if you make contact with other VSA players ahead of signing up if you want to form groups. Once we have lined up dates and times for your specific package, we will send a confirmation email. These will be emailed out a few days prior to June 1st or a week before your first scheduled session.. When you respond to the confirmation email, you are committed to the package and will be billed for it through your club account.

This player factory session we are also offering packages that can run throughout the soccer year and include sessions next winter. This would be based upon a one trainer to one player ratio.

Purpose:         

·         Offer a ratio of instructor to player environment for specific technical development
·         Give an opportunity to offer “more” to players in a controlled environment
·         Tailor training to players’ specific needs of development

Philosophy:
·         Every player will be taken into the program that wants to participate U9 to U19
·         Coaches should not train players that they already coach in a team environment
·         This program will be offered during the off season
·         Training should be intense and specific for the complete 28 minutes
