South Windsor Soccer Club

Players must be enrolled in a Fall 2019 recreational soccer program to participate.

The SWSC Academy was designed to enhance the development of our U6-U10 age players within our club. It is intended for those young players who are interested in advanced training, with professional coaching and getting a better introductory understanding of the travel soccer experience.

This style of training and play is strongly encouraged by the USSF and US Youth Soccer organization as being the best for player development. At this age it's not about wins and losses, it's about player development. According to the US Soccer Coaching Education Department, the most fundamental skill is individual mastery of the ball and the creativity that comes with it.

Academy programs allow young players to grow into the game in a fun way with the freedom to experience and develop at an age-appropriate pace. Academy programs allow clubs to create an innovative learning environment for players to thrive.

The academy program works hand and hand with recreational soccer programs. It offers those players the extra training they may desire without interfering with regular season play. This provides them with an atmosphere to continually advance in skill level by providing more touches on the ball in a low-pressure environment where they have the time needed to try new things and develop ball mastery skills.

For most players, this is the best environment for them to grow. Other clubs may offer league play rather than an academy program. However, the greater the level of competition, the less time the player has to develop creativity. The greater the level of competition, the more pressure parents put on their children. The greater the level of competition, coach's tend to shift their focus to winning rather than the development of players.
