Season-long professional training continues to come to Stoughton Youth Soccer for the Spring 2014.

SYSL Partnership with MPS ( Mass Premier Soccer) for professional coaching will work together to improve the quality of player development and therefore the quality of play on the field.  This starts April 7th and ends the week of 6/6/14.  On Friday’s will be offering a programmed called Skills 11 clinic.  On weekends MPS will observe games.

In addition to group practices, coaches are encouraged to hold a second practice to re-enforce the ideas learned in the group practice, and to further work on player development.

Group Clinic / Practices

In order to best utilize the MPS partnership, group practices will be held for all age groups except for the U5 division.

The U5 division will continue to have their skills session and game during their scheduled weekend division time.   The division coordinator will be in attendance to assist with the skill sessions and the game play.  U5 coaches are also encouraged to attend group practices for other divisions in order to shadow the coaches and further educate themselves in the process of running a successful practice session.

All group practices scheduled with the MPS coach will take place at the Kolz Soccer Fields on West St.  Coaches should arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled practice time in order to setup their practice session and review drills with MPS trainers. U5-U8 coaches that wish to hold an additional practice must use one of the town fields for which SYSL has a permit. Please download the field permit here (  Field Permit Spring 2014   ).
