    As the premier providers of soccer training on the East Coast we will deliver diverse soccer programs, which are both inspirational and educational. These programs are age and ability appropriate and are found on the principles of safety, learning and enjoyment.

    MissionStatement

    Philosophy

    The underpinning principles of our programs: Safety, learning and enjoyment; Maximum participation; Structured and progressive learning; Identify all potential partners and foster relationships between them; Develop positive attitudes.

    USA, Inc. have identified three essential elements that are present in all of our own programs and coaching sessions that we call the Three Pillars of Soccer. It is recognized that all USA, Inc. programs contain the elements of safety, learning and enjoyment. It is your responsibility as a coach to ensure that these elements are at the forefront of your mind in all sessions. All are their own separate entity, yet encompass each other. The USA program identifies a players age and ability level (from the age and curriculum breakdown model) which will in turn affect the extent to which an element is present at any time during a USA program. It is also recognized that safety, learning and enjoyment are interpreted different at each program level. We have placed an emphasis upon the individual importance of safety which has to be at the forefront of the coaches mind before learning and enjoyment can take place.

    Activity 1: British Bulldog Attackers line up with a ball and aim to successfully dribble to the opposite end line without losing control and/or being tackled by the defender. When an attacker loses possession and the ball has been kicked out the defined area, they then become an additional defender in the next wave of attack. The winner is the last attacker with the ball under control at either end line.

    Activity 2: Under Arrest Outfield players choose an opponent to be marked by and to mark when their team is not in possession of the ball. For a set time pe-riod (e.g. 3 minutes), this is the only player that can tackle you and the only player that you can tackle. Players must therefore escape to get space to receive the ball or take your player away so that a team mate can attack that space. Defensively, players must stay as close as possible and stop their opponent receiving the ball and/or scoring a goal.

    Activity 3: Touch Tight Players are split into two teams. Each attacker has two pinnies tucked into the side of their shorts. Defenders attempt to steal as many pinnies as possible. The winner is the defender that collects the most pinnies after a specified time period.

    Activity 4: The Shield Players are split into two teams. Attackers attempt to kick as many balls off the markers as possible. Defenders use their body as a shield to protect the soccer balls. The winner is the player that kicks the most soccer balls off the markers after a specified time period.

    Activity 5: Numbers Game Players are split into two teams at either side of the goal. On the coaches command, the designated player from each team compete for the ball delivered by the coach. A point is awarded to the team that scores. The winner is the first team to 10 points.

    Activity 6: Defending Gates Players are in pairs. Attackers dribble through as many different gates as possible. The defenders attempt to prevent their opponent from dribbling through the gates. When defenders win possession of the ball, they then become the attacker. The winner is the player that dribbles through the most gates after a specified time period.

    Activity 4: Soccer Cricket Players are split into two teams. One team starts as attackers (kickers) and the other as defenders (fielders). The coach serves the ball to the attacking team. The attacker on base attempts to kick the ball as far as possible and run around either of the two flags. The defenders attempt to return the ball to the coach before the attacker returns to base. The attacker is out when they miss the ball and the wicket is knocked down and/or they do not return to base before the ball is returned to the coach. Teams switch roles after each attacker has played as the kicker. The winner is the team with the most runs. The kicker can only kick the ball with their non-preferred foot.

    Activity 5: Creative Finishing Players are split into two teams. Both teams are placed in opposite corners of the area. On the coaches command, the first attacker from each team dribbles towards the mannequin, performs a skill, trick or move of their choice and shoots at goal. The winner is the first attacker to score. The shot must be taking with their non-preferred foot.

    Activity 6: Penalty Relay Attackers score as many consecutive penalties as possible before the timer runs out. Defenders dictate the period of time attackers have available to score by dribbling the ball around the markers to a team mate at the other side of the goal. The quicker the defenders dribble the ball, the less time the attackers have to score. Once all defenders return to their starting position, the timer stops. The winner is the team that scores the most goals. The shot must be taken with their non-preferred foot.
