Curriculum Outline

Age appropriate training is necessary for the successful transition from one phase to the next.  Phases are 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14, 15/16, 17-19.  We believe that each phase unattended jeopardizes the next, thus preparation is important to develop proper habits and comprehension of the five pillars of the game; Technical, Tactical, Psychological, Physical and Socio-Cultural. 

 

The developmental process is four-fold, static/isolated, passive/shadow, active unidirectional pressure and competitive multi-directional pressure. The aim in every phase is developing good soccer habits, proper technique and decision making at the subconscious level wherein “intuition is calibrated” so that creativity and improvisation is cultivated.  Furthermore, its significant to mention that throughout the phases academic excellence is encouraged as acquisition of knowledge serves two purposes; self awareness to negotiate life's multifaceted journey and to make the world a better place for all people.  

 

We at FC Columbus comprehend that soccer represents but a moment in the life cycle and benefits from the experience transfers into other aspects of the journey.  Subsequently, we promote holistic athletic and academic  development within the curricula as growth is the natural consequence of a self aware individual.
