In an effort to introduce the fundamentals of the game at a pivotal age, BRSC Jr. Competitive Girls Director Melissa Ramsey is inviting 2013 girls to participate in the program this spring. BRSC’s Jr. Competitive Program introduces players to the fundamentals of the game that they will need as they advance to the competitive program. Players train Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00 – 6:30 pm at Our Lady of the Lake Soccer Fields at Burbank Soccer Park. Sessions focus on individual technique, technical speed, tactical application of technique, and principles of play and are conducted by professional, certified coaches.
Players are permitted and encouraged to participate in both the Junior Competitive Program and the Recreational program at the same time.
“The ages of 8-12 are key years in the development of soccer players. When the child gets older, it is the technical ability combined with soccer IQ and fitness, which inevitably determines the game-winner. If a child has no background in technical development, they will not be able to contribute at the next level as they get older. I fully support and endorse this movement to bring a more technical developmental approach to youth soccer in Louisiana. It is essential if we want to see Louisiana produce better-prepared soccer players to play at the higher levels of the game in the future.”
