2019 JUSC Winter Training Program


Presenting the 2019 JUSC Winter - Center of Excellence!

We have our sessions to help prepare players for their upcoming spring season.

The JUSC Center of Excellence will provide an 8-week training program through the winter running early January - early March.

The sessions delivered from the JUSC coaching syllabus - Playing the JUSC Style. The JUSC staff will look to improve and develop participant’s technical ability through a variety of activities including: passing, receiving, dribbling, decision making, awareness, player movement with and without the ball.

All activity is directed to the developmental age and abilities of the participant. The JUSC staff will set the standards and expectations while challenging players to exceed and get better. The circle of technical development consists of 6 stages of progressive activities. The 6 key areas are as follows:

  1. Ball Mastery and 1st Touch
    The foundation of every player’s development which becomes essential to progress. Each step is integral to each other and player development is achieved as the techniques at each level become more challenging.
  2. Speed, Mobility, and the 3 A’s
    Training Games with and without the ball to develop: Agility-Acceleration-Awareness
  3. Receiving, Passing, and Decision Making
    Activities focusing on improving your 1st touch when under pressure. In addition to maintaining possession and making the correct decisions when keeping the ball.
  4. Individual Attacking and Defending Techniques
    Activities that focus on 1v1, 2v2, individual game situations, space creation, and successful out-comes against disciplined defenses.
  5. Goal Scoring and Finishing
    Activities that improve technique and encourage instinctive play around the goal.
  6. Group Combination Play
    Activities to improve small group play with emphasis on quick break counter attacks and transition play.
