The Elite Regional Training (ERT) is a supplemental player training development program designed for players (boys and girls) that wish to supplement their current club team training with a higher level training option. The program is tailored towards players who are serious about soccer and wish to attain a higher level of skill and excellence in order to take their game to the next level. Because the ERT Program will serve as a supplementary program to existing club teams and complement development, it will therefore operate on a schedule that attempts to avoid scheduling conflicts in order to maximize player participation.
The ERT Program will meet once a month. We will conduct combined age group training and the age groups for this 2016-2017 calendar year will be for players born in the following years; 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. If necessary, we’ll also look to the 2008 group, but the technical staff will make that final decision.
This is not intended to affect current teams/age groups. ERT allows for additional training and participation in one additional tournament per season. Players will remain with current teams and be available for everything as normal. Any coach is welcome to attend any session to observe.
ERT training is scheduled for Friday afternoons in an effort to avoid most team trainings. Training should be treated similar to a player attending PDP/IDP/ODP, where high level talent is getting additional training.
Both Clubs will work with coaches to determine which players should attend. Club coaches and directors will recommend players to attend these sessions. Coaches are encouraged to select players to attend the ERT sessions who show strong ability, desire, and work rate.
Players develop at different rates and different times in their life. We will be consistently reviewing the ERT pool of players to make any necessary adjustment(s).
