The Program

Individual attention is directed to the program and is directed for established club players (internally and external) that would like to develop and tailor individual skill sets. Rising Stars Soccer Academy program also gives insight with types of concepts to soccer/football conditioning at an intermediate and elite levels.

 

Intermediate stage and Elite stage players are envisaged. It’s important that we acknowledge that Rising Stars players are placed in their age and skill appropriate groups.

Intermediate Stage

Skills Acquisition training methods – THE FOUR CORE SKILLS

  • Striking the ball:

This includes all forms of striking the ball such as short/long passing, shooting and crossing.

  • First Touch:

Controlling the ball with all allowed body parts.

  • 1v1:

 All moves, feints and accelerations to get past and away from an opponent.

  • Running with the ball.

Core skill sets will be incorporated. Dribbling, receiving, striking, extending dribbling skills with angled target zones will incorporate correctional technique with ball control within dribbling activities.  Experimenting with both feet - left and right, stepping techniques - teaching the child to look up while dribbling the ball.  Passing in twos, follow ball with your eyes, move to get behind and in line with the ball, not to stretch for it.
 


Advanced Stage

Introduction to warm-up routines, static stretching and the importance of stretching before the commencement of any training or game activity (lower and upper body).  Reviewing and evaluating stretching techniques.  Move to get behind and in line with the flight of ball, withdraw on contact with the ball.  Moving into space and experimenting with tight spaces, where closer contact on the ball is needed.  Recapping the key points of executing drills, turns, pull backs, looking up.  Observing players for recognition of when to turn and when to pull the ball back.  Observing if players look up before playing the ball or not.  To receive and assess speed leading up to the ball, stopping then quickly changing direction and speed.
 
Each stage has a variety of drills and small sided games that will challenge the player to further his or her technique. 

 

At the end and during the 8-week block each player will receive a reflection sheet with strengths and weaknesses, summarising a player’s needs and a program to only benefit for the near future. 

 

Rising Stars program runs parallel with the 4-terms of a school year - excluding school holidays.

We look forward to seeing your child participate in Adelaide’s most successful soccer development program.
