In 2019-20 we’re making a slight change to our training format for our U9 (2011) & U10 (2010) teams.
In addition to their regular team training run by their regular coach, we’ll offer an optional “FUNdamental Friday” skills training led by our Youth Development leaders. The plan is 6:00-7:30pm at Otto Armleder, but please consult the Club Calendar to ensure there are no changes.
For our U7 (2013) and U8 (2012) teams, this is one of their two training sessions for the week listed on their team calendars.
The purpose of this change is to provide flexibility and improve player’s skills while reducing the “commitment” of how many training sessions per week for our players, parents, and coaches are expected to attend.
For the players that can’t get enough Cincy SC training, this still provides a third day of training. For players with a conflict during their normal training time, it provides a make up session without parents feeling guilty or players falling behind their teammates.
Friday Night Skills is targeted at U9 and U10 players that have 2 team training sessions per week, and for U7 & U8 players that would attend Juniors or team training one day per week plus the Skills training. Older players are also welcome to participate and would be expected to help coach and mentor the younger players.
