While this program is open for everyone who wants a different soccer program, not all players will fit in this program. This program was created for players who are looking for something special.
The Boca Raton FC Youth Academy is decided to focus on the first stage of creating a new pool of players, developing and identifying them and bringing them to the next level.
The next level could be a college or professional career. At the Boca Raton FC Youth Academy, we focus on following our players through the early stages of their careers, which is why we have decided to not compete with players that have started their soccer careers with other clubs. By doing this, we are able to focus on building the Boca Raton FC culture and in the future, only accept players to our older teams that came from our IDP program, creating a pathway from a young age to the first team. We want our players to love their club and we want that this love will grow and help Boca Raton FC become a big, healthy family.
Our dream is to create a different type of soccer model, one in which families, coaches, and players all have the same goal: Build great players and a great citizens. We don’t want to be only another club with competitive leagues and a stressful and expensive agenda of tournaments that at the end only gives the winners a medal and a trophy. Our goal is to make our players get the big final prize of becoming a good person and player! We want to see our players be awarded college scholarships, and/or professional contracts. This is a long journey, which is why we are starting with the early age group.
When is the right age to join the Boca Raton FC developmental structure? As early as possible!
IDP is different than recreational soccer. IDP is a program specifically designed for developing and identifying U4/U9 players who are interested in being developed and prepared for the next level.
This is designed to provide a different service to the soccer community for players in these early age groups. It is a way to meet the individual developmental needs of a player who desires a greater challenge outside of the recreational soccer system.
IDP players are guaranteed to receive age-appropriate instruction from licensed coaches during all training and game day sessions. While participation in all sessions is not required, registered players will be offered one or two training opportunity per week for 8 weeks that we call “season”. The program will have 4 seasons per year, and parents can decide how many seasons their child will participate in.
This unique developmental program will move your child from the traditional recreation league to a select player. They can continue playing the recreational associations in any of the quality recreational association in our area but what Boca Raton FC IDP offers is a soccer experience and introduces the game to players looking to move to the next level.
The program consists of eight or 16 (twice a week) soccer classes. Sessions are 60 minutes in length. Players will be grouped based on age and ability. All sessions follow a simple structure centered on one topic with the following three phases: warm-up, topic of the day, and games. Sessions will be constructed around technical topics such as passing, receiving, and defending, as well as tactical topics such as positional awareness, and movement on and off the ball.
Little Kickers (4-6 years)
The emphasis of this specific program is to provide the children with a fun introduction to teamwork.
Soccer Essentials (7-9 years)
This program emphasizes coordination and movement in soccer. We present this through fun skill exercises and small-sized soccer games.
Our programs are for children from age 3 to 9 years. Our program consists of 8 weeks of 8 eight or 16 (twice a week) soccer sessions. Players will be grouped based on age and ability. All classes follow a simple structure focusing on one topic with the following three phases:
– warm-up activity
– small-sided and conditioned practice
Classes will be constructed around technical topics such as passing, receiving and defending as well as tactical topics such as positional awareness and movement on and off the ball. Throughout this program, children will participate in numerous activities such as relay races, obstacle courses, and other fun games.
We hope to provide your child with a stimulating experience where fun, fitness and teamwork all come together.
