COMMERCE CITY CO - The Colorado Rapids Academy has announced that their winter Center of Excellence program is slated to start January 10th 2010.
This program is now accepting applications and is open to boys born between August 1 1999 and July 31 2001.
The Rapids U10 Center of Excellence focuses on technical skills that develop players and prepares them for competitive soccer. Several players have already graduated from the Rapids U10 COE program to advance to the Rapids U11 youth team and the Academy looks forward to seeing this trend continue!
The program will ensure that more young players are exposed to quality coaching and made more aware of the technical requirements of an elite soccer player. The exclusive purpose of the U-10 COE is to introduce and promote player development through technical training and the importance of technique as it applies to the game. Although inclusive it is still designed to nurture the advancing serious player.
All sessions will be staffed by Rapids Academy coaches and players and will be supervised by Center of Excellence Director David Proctor. Rapids first team players that have coached the Center of Excellence include Colin Clark Greg Dalby Jordan Harvey Nick LaBrocca and Michael Holody.
The Rapids U10 Center of Excellence will include 6 sessions on consecutive Sundays starting January 10th from 11:30am to 12:45pm at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. The cost is $150 per player.
Registration for this program is extremely limited so prospective players should make sure to sign up as soon as possible to reserve a spot.
