Girls Competitive Program

I trust you are all enjoying the start to the fall season and had a safe Labor Day Weekend. I look forward to getting out to see as many of the girl’s competitive games and training sessions as I can this season!
There are a few items that I would like to address to help clear anything up for all parents and players prior to getting too far into the season including the goalkeeper training schedule, Tech Night trainings and proper practice attire and wear.

SPORTS PERFORMANCE CENTER
ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE PROGRAM
We have been able to see over 60 players take advantage of our Summer Training Program at the SPC, which is a fantastic showing in our inaugural year. The players have enjoyed the chance to take in technical, tactical, and small sided games work, staying sharp over the off-season months. We hope that we see more players next summer taking advantage of this training…
Build You: Sport Performance Lab and Physical Therapy
This program has begun and players are getting screened.
Movement Screens with FC Boulder players U11-U19 boys and girls. With the effort to:
- Identify players with movement patterning that could put them at a higher risk for non-contact injuries.
- Gather data that will help us better address our FC Boulder players and their athletic needs.
- Act as another feedback mechanism for our membership, players and parents, and coaching staff, from which we can make more informed decisions.
The initial movement screen provided on site will be assessed using a simple “pass” or “high risk” determination, for the sake of identification efficiency. For those players that are deemed “high risk” based on the movement screen data collected and analyzed, further consultation with Build You will be recommended and encouraged, from which an individual development plan can be created.
BOULDER VALLEY YOUTH SOCCER
The Juniors Program began the Fall 2019 season practice schedule the week of August 12. With 25 teams and over 250 players, this is the largest season of the Juniors Program. We are also introducing eight new coaches this fall.
This year we will be having our Optional Training Sessions at the Sports Performance Center, which in two weeks has already seen over 100 players participating each week.
We will hold our inaugural “Juniors Jamboree” on Saturday, September 7 at East Boulder Community Center. This event is a fun way for us to kickoff the season, giving our teams two, in-house scrimmages and a day for us to enjoy being a part of the Juniors Program!
The season is almost here! Hopefully everyone is very excited to get on the field and start kicking the ball around.
Free soccer clinics start this coming week (schedule below):
|Monday – South Boulder Rec||Tuesday – Superior||Wednesday – Columbine Elementary||Thursday – Arapahoe YMCA|
|U5/U6||4:15pm – 5pm||4:15pm – 5pm||4:15pm – 5pm||4:15pm – 5pm|
|U7/U8||5pm – 5:45pm||5pm – 5:45pm||5pm – 5:45pm||5pm – 5:45pm|
|U9+||5:45pm – 6:30pm||5:45pm – 6:30pm|
I encourage all the players to attend these clinics with a goal of all players feeling confident with the ball at their feet. This confidence comes by being around the ball as much as possible. The soccer clinics will include a lot of ball mastery exercises and 1v1 opportunities.
