A Better Way to Play
Introducing: The PlayOn! Series
You know the adage, Keep it Simple Stupid? The inspiration for this phrase is set in the notion that systems work better when they aren’t overcomplicated. So why not adopt the philosophy for young kids who are just starting on the pitch?
They can learn to love soccer by simply playing it - free of the tired and over-structured system that can suffocate all the fun and joy out of experiencing the beautiful game.
SIMPLICITY IS GENIUS
Our first collective goal is simply to provide a safe place for U7 and U8 kids to play, be challenged ... and most importantly, have fun while growing as individual players.
Our second overall goal is to free the sidelines of stress - more enjoyment for coaches and parents. This will in turn make the experience better for players.
HOW WILL IT WORK?
Think streetball meets celebration for what we're calling The PlayOn! Series. We'll host up to 10 events a year starting in the summer at various locations throughout the valley. Players will get their fair share of challenging competition and excitement as they run the course against six different opponents in an hour and a half. No referees, no scoring and only light guidance coaching.
Games will be played in varying player formats - 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4 on smaller field sizes. This allows for more individual touches and personal experiences. Great for both proactive players and kids who need to gain a little more confidence in a less chaotic scene.
Oh, and as a bonus, since parents will be on hand - we'll have the opportunity to host educational programs or Q&As with experts in youth player development - a captive audience!
