Player Development

We are excited to introduce our fall player challenge!

Most players have one or two practices and a game each week. This is a great start, however, it is important for players to get their feet on the ball every day.

We are challenging players to get 1,000 touches in every week for the next six weeks. We will be sending out a suggested activity each week.

Please print the attached form and record the number of touches each day. Parents should initial each day. Forms will be turned in the last week of October. Every player who completes the challenge will receive a prize and will also receive a chance to win a $50 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods.

The challenge for week one is to build your own dribbling obstacle course. Players who send in videos and pictures will receive bonus chances to win.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
