Danville Soccer Club has restructured its' traditional Rec program.  The new program is now Danville SC Foundations.  The Foundations program is designed to introduce kids to the game of soccer, and to provide a place for those who have played previously to continue their soccer education.  As the name implies, there will be a heavy emphasis on teaching fundamentals of the game to all participants.

Why the change in the program?

The club leadership has recognized the need for a change based on feedback from parents.  We acknowledge the negative experience many parents and players had last fall (and previous seasons as) and want to rectify the situation.  We hope, as parents, that you will give the club the opportunity to redeem itself.

How is "Foundations" different than previous years?  

First, the coaching staff will consist of current and former travel players, college players, college coaches, and staff coaches.  In the past the Rec program relied heavily on parent volunteers.  This led to varying experiences for players and parents, depending on the coach.  The club wants to make sure all kids have the same enjoyable experience.

Second, the program curriculum will be age specific, and follows guidelines set by the U. S. Youth Soccer Association.  Each child will be trained in the same fundamentals and skills.  Coaches will work under the leadership of Eric Hash, Director of Coaching.

Finally, the format will be different.  Instead of placing kids on specific teams, each age group will train together one night during the week.  The first part of the training will center on technical instruction and skill development.  Kids will then be placed in groups and participate in small-sided games.  This allows them to implement new skills and concepts.

For this spring season, the program is open to kids with birth years 2010-2015.  The season will run from April 2 thru May 21.  Registration is now open, and the cost is $50 and closes on March 22nd.  Each player is required to have shinguards and a ball to participate.  Players born from 2010-2013 will need a size 4 ball; players born 2014-2015 need a size 3 ball.
