The 2017-18 Plan

The curriculum aims to enhance the program even further to help the Washington state players achieve their dream of playing at the collegiate level. You must have a plan to get recognized, evaluated and identified by the right college coaches. The competitive events are imperative for the program to be successful. Important components to be successful:
 
• Quality Staff • Meaningful Training • Opportunities for the player • Pathway to College

 

PSPL SURF ACADEMY TEAM TRAINING CONCEPT

The PSPL Surf Academy Program is designed to promote player development within their own club structure by utilizing THE CLUBS players and most experienced coaching staff to attend additional tournaments across the United States East & West Coast. The program is designed to give the top Elite players additional training and competitive opportunities -- and more exposure to college coaches. 

The first component is creating an elite state all-star academy and then offering high-level training sessions for players striving to reach the collegiate level. The training atmosphere must be professional and focused on achieving these outcomes. 

We will continue to select players from a pool of top players in Washington State. 

The PSPL Surf Academy teams play a 10-month season beginning in December with try outs, and ending in September. September & October we will concentrate on specific position training clinics. The Academy teams will travel and play against like opponents for tournaments and other special competitive events most regular clubs in Washington State are unable to attend. 

PSPL Surf Academy players will be dual registered to local clubs in the PSPL League teams and participate in those matches as well. While there may be conflicts with scheduling we are attempting to schedule tournaments around club play. 

The Academy teams will train two times per month during the 2017 soccer season. There will be some exceptions such as the month of April when clubs are preparing for Washington Cup and handling spring vacations. And other months there may be an additional training session to prepare for a tournament. 

A typical weekend of training would include several different types of sessions including strength & conditioning evaluations, technical, tactical and functional sessions. Player, parent classroom, and College Edge educational nights will be offered to help with the recruitment process. The training format for all ages will mirror the style of work being used at the U-18 and U-16 levels in order to better prepare players for the transition into the older categories.
