Saturday is game day.  Players are divided into teams each Saturday and play a small sided game.  The size of the field, number of players, placement of goals, and rules vary each week to allow the players to experience a variety of challenges that will prepare the players for a higher level of soccer.
The Pre Travel School of Excellence uses a player development model that puts the focus on mastering game skills while learning their application to the game.  We not only teach players how to master dribbling, passing, receiving, and shooting, but provide the players with the visual signs to read, in order for the players to be able to recognize when to apply each skill in games situations.  We use soccer player centered activities that challenge the players to make multiple decisions throughout each practice so they are prepared for the game.
