CT Summer Select™ certainly understands the time commitment that families put in during the summer months and juggling multiple schedules and vacation time. As a result, CT Summer Select™ will do all they can to maintain a consistent practice schedule/tournament schedule year after year, to ease the burden of multiple family participants and allow for scheduling in advance. In addition, the practice schedule is staggered so that the next age group above or below, practice at different times, allowing for individuals to attend a different age group’s practice should schedule prevent them for attending its regular practice. For example, if a U10 boy has a doctor’s appointment on its normal practice time, he can attend the U9 or U11 practice on this day.
Each player will be put in an environment where they will be challenged at practice while at the same time having fun developing all of the skills required to progress in his/her technical and tactical game. This will establish a consistent sense of achievement and a lasting love for the game of soccer. In addition to practices and the three tournaments, the program will host a jamboree in where our teams will compete against other Summer Select branches as well as an internal 4v4 tournament.
All CT Summer Select™U13 and above will be offered a state-of-the-art T4 Soccer performance assessment. This is the latest in soccer-specific tests that evaluate speed, agility, power and aerobic and anaerobic endurance. These tests are supported by scientific research and they objectively evaluate a player’s physical soccer performance.
As the program grows to the older ages, the aim is to offer the older teams exposure to top European tournaments and appropriate level college showcases. To fund programs as such, CT Summer Select™ have several fundraising programs established to ease the burden for such an added expense.
Furthermore, the program will host College Seminars for older age groups with highly respected college coaches from all divisions in attendance.
