SAC’s goal is to achieve technical excellence in all of its soccer programs. To accomplish this goal two objectives must be met: (1) Coaches in all SAC programs (SAC Juniors, Recreation, Select, Travel and Academy) must be provided with consistent, high quality and appropriate education so they can learn and train their players in all aspects of soccer. (2) Player development must be constantly emphasized-specifically the development of individual player skills under pressure of time, space and an opponent.
The objective is to increase the player’s technical speed in a progressive training environment that concentrates on the player with the ball and his/her immediate surroundings. As players advance from program to program, skill development is encouraged through camps/clinics and technical training sessions.
