YDA Mission:

  • Learn - The YDA provides a player-centered technical training environment. Players will be taught by KHSC staff members.
  • Grow - We strive for a new victory each week, each victory represents something, a new skill acquired, broken juggling record, and/or a new piece of knowledge of the game.
  • Commitment - Looking for an extra training session? YDA players come to compete and improve technical ability.
  • Together - Welcome or welcome back to the Kings Hammer Soccer Club Family. Join us and enjoy the experience. 

The Curriculum: Technical Growth

  • Ball Mastery - We endorse the importance of ball familiarity. Acquiring new ball skills, using all parts of the foot, and keeping eyes up while dribbling (under control) at multiple speeds and directions.
  • Finishing - Who loves the glory of scoring a goal? Players will have ample opportunities to master the techniques if striking the ball and how to create their own show. 
  • Speed, Agility, and Coordination -The YDA provides players the training to improve balance, speed and power.

What to expect each week:
Each week players will participate in 1 training session, led by Kings Hammer Youth Development Academy Director Mike Combs and staff, and one game day. Training sessions will be 1 hour sessions with a focus on technical skill development and small sided games. On game days players will be put into teams of 3v3 or 4v4. Each team will play 3-4 mini games. Each game, lasting 8-10 minutes, will have a specific start time, stoppage time, and time to rotate fields if necessary. Field monitors are assigned or parent volunteers are welcomed to keep the flow of play moving.
