Competitive Club Soccer

Training

Centennial SC strives to provide the highest quality training for all players regardless of age or skill level in our programs.  We believe that a strong foundation of soccer knowledge and skill learned at the U9 – U12 levels of play will set up our players for the best opportunities as they move into U13 – U19 soccer.  This foundation includes ball handling skills, utilizing space effectively, and a strong emphasis on the proper tactics for small sided situations (1v1, 2v1, 2v2, etc.). 

Our training programs are centered around utilizing Small Sided Games as recommended by US Youth Soccer.  Small Sided Games allow players to gain have more touches on the ball and have been shown to help players master skills and concepts faster than older training methods. In addition to Small Sided Games, trainers will also work with players to help them master individual ball control techniques, shooting, and passing skills.

Team Formation

Teams for the summer and fall competitive soccer season are formed by Centennial SC's Technical Committee following the completion of the yearly evaluation process in early August.  To provide continuity in our programming, every attempt will be made to form fall teams that reflect the following summer’s competitive team rosters.  As always, fall team formation and level of play depends on the number of players at each age group signing up for the fall season.  If needed Centennial SC will combine age groups to provide competitive teams for the fall season.

Coaches

Centennial SC's Technical Committee is responsible for screening and placing coaching applicants with teams in the summer traveling program.  Most U9 to U12 teams will have a volunteer parent coach while most U13 to U19 teams will hire a team coach at additional expense to that team.  To help our volunteer coaches, Centennial SC actively partners with them to help them obtain the knowledge they need to be successful.  This help can include club sponsored education sessions or assistance with acquiring coaching licenses and / or certificates.  If your team utilizes a team paid coach the cost of that coach will vary based on that coach’s experience, license / certifications, off-season work with the team, and the number of training sessions the team desires with that coach.  Any fees associated with a team paid coach are the sole responsibility of the players on that team.  All coaches whether volunteer or team paid will go through the same application and screening process prior to placement with a team.
