As part of adding a new academy/traveling soccer team for more advanced city resident soccer youth players, Decatur Active Living will hold "Soccer I.D. program" open training sessions at Ebster Field on Friday, April 3rd; Friday, April 10th; and Friday April 17th. Ebster Field is behind the Decatur Police Dept./Ebster Recreation Center, 404 West Trinity Place. The academy/traveling soccer team is a supplement to the traditional, long-standing Decatur Youth Soccer recreational program.
The training for 8, 9 and 10 year olds (U 10) will be from 6-7 pm, Friday, April 3rd, 10th and 17th.
The training for 11 and 12 year olds (U 12) will be from 7-8 pm, Friday, April 3rd, 10th and 17th.
Each session will build on the previous session so commitment to attendance is important. After the first three open dates, there will be 6 more Friday sessions for the committed players concluding on May 22nd.
Training will be developmental, with a focus on fundamentals. One of the objectives will be to prepare for academy tryouts in May and provide exposure to the academy environment. Each participant who completes the program will be given a free training jersey; the Friday I.D. sessions are free of charge.
