Select Programming

Select Programming was initiated to provide additional training opportunities for players who: 1) Consistently had a conflict which prevented them from making all their weekly team sessions, or 2) Wanted to supplement a full week of team sessions with another opportunity for skill-work.

In previous seasons this has consisted of adding weekly technical and speed & agility sessions for players on Wednesdays.

Beginning in spring 2014, Iowa Rush will be revising Select Programming for the purpose of:

- Expanding the number of opportunities offered to players.

- Creating more connectivity between team sessions and select programming offerings.

- Helping foster the club culture of players committed to continuously becoming more skillful and thoughtful with the ball.

- Working towards developing a multi-faceted program which creates more avenues for players to develop in the four pillars of the game: Technical, Physical, Tactical, and Psychological.

 

GOALS OF SELECT PROGRAMMING

For our younger Select players (U11-U12), sessions will build a solid foundation by emphasizing fundamental technical and physical points.  By building this foundation we hope to give players more confidence with the ball and success implementing the individual decision-making and group-play concepts which are the focus of team training sessions.

Sessions for older Select players (U13-U14) will continue concentrating on earlier themes, while aggressively incorporating more advanced techniques.  These sessions will strive to give players the tools to build a repertoire of skills and ideas to play the game effectively and creatively as they progress into their high school-age years. In addition, by helping players become better athletes, we will prepare them to compete in a faster and more physically-demanding game.

 

Fall 2014 WEEKLY SESSION STRUCTURE

Players will be offered the following optional sessions as part of Select Programming:

1. A 30 minute “Technical Session” on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays which takes place before or after the player’s team session.

2. A 45 minute “Speed and Agility” session on Wednesdays.

3. A 45 minute “Street Soccer” session on Wednesdays.
