WHAT IS SELECT?
is Summer League Select? Why
participate in Summer League Select? Will
Summer League Select help in player development?
For many families, participation in soccer started out as an activity
designed for children to get some exercise, make friends, and learn about
team sports. For parents, it
provided an opportunity to drop a child off in a safe environment while
mom/dad ran an errand or two, it gave mom/dad some free time to relax and
read a few pages from the latest bestseller, and/or it created a place to
make social contact with other adults. League
Select is a continuation of all of those things and then some.
most basic level, League Select is equivalent to summer Little League
All-Star baseball with a slight twist --
you don’t have to be friends with the dad that is coaching the
all-star team – just kidding. The
aim of League Select is to provide young, talented players, from our member
clubs, the opportunity to play soccer beyond the regular league season in an
environment that is more challenging and demanding than traditional league
play. Families participate in
League Select so their children can gain additional experience playing
soccer, learn more about playing the game, make some new friends, and/or to
try something new to see if the kids like it.
Ultimately, League Select is all about kids PLAYING soccer and
parents ENJOYING the action.
your child is really into soccer, League Select is a great way to continue
player development. Will an
individual player get better playing – it really depends on the player.
Individual players benefit in countless ways ranging from learning
new technical skills to gaining self-confidence.
There is much to be gained and it really comes down to how much a
player and his/her parents wish to harvest from the experience.
For some, this initial harvest is a stepping stone along the path to
a wonderful career playing youth, high school, college, and ????
