Situational Advancement Program
This is the area of the program that challenges players to grow technically, tactically, and mentally. We foster a very competitive environment within training to allow players to compete and raise their level of play. We want players and teams moving up the ladder in a very progressive manner and understanding the challenges and demands needed to play soccer at this level. Position Specific Training, Knowledge Training (Soccer IQ), Implementation, Correction & Repetition for Perfection. At this state in the development cycle we want players to be able to recognize the three moments of a game, when your team has possession of the ball, when your team does not have possession of the ball, when your team is changing (transitioning) from one to the other. Therefore, our players must understand the principles of the game:
- Attacking Principles
- Defensive Principles
At Brevard SA, we are committed to both turning out quality players and helping them find a college that fits their educational, geographical and athletic needs and wants. Understanding the demands both on & off the field requirements are essential at this level. At this stage in a player’s development understanding concepts like the art of winning, the tactical adjustments required at the next level, the competitive logical demands of the game, consistency and pressure are all what makes a well-rounded player. We will provide the training environments and structure the player and team’s development around these understandings and demands of the game. We will also provide opportunities and platforms to be seen by college coaches at Showcase tournaments and ID Camps. We have relationships and will continue to create relationships and partnerships to give our athletes the resources to successfully transition into the college game.
