RUNNING ALWAYS HAS BEEN AND IS STILL THE KEY TO SUCCESS IN SPORTS

FOR SOCCER PLAYERS:

To improve your soccer game read pages 71-75 from the LA84 Soccer Coaches Manual. The type of training mentioned is readily available in sports like Cross Country and Track & Field.  Paying lots of money for club programs year after year does not mean it is the best method for training. Train smart, not expensively. 

Is your club working?  Are you improving? 

Who benefits the most from you joining clubs 

year round - you or the club coaches?


Soccer is an equivalency sport for NCAA scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can  be awarded to meet the NCAA limit per school.  For example, an NCAA Division I school can award 21 female soccer players each a 2/3 equivalent scholarship and still meet the limit of 14.   Additionally, these are the annual limits for the entire team;  so for a 4 year school  only about  25% of the limit per school  will  typically be  available for  incoming students.
