Third grade and older Recreational and Independent Premier teams have the option of working with a SPORTING Blue Valley Team Trainer to assist in training their soccer teams in the fall and/or in the spring. Team trainers work with the Rec and IP coaches to develop or expand skills the head coach feels the team may need. All trainer practices take place on Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex Fields. Teams may choose either 5 sessions ($75 per player), 9 sessions ($110 per player) or 18 sessions ($220 per player) per season. SPORTING Blue Valley will provide the Rec and IP teams with professional coaching – many of the trainers are premier coaches and/or have trained teams for a number of years. Trainers can be requested, however due to coaching obligations, work schedules, and field schedules – these requests cannot always be accommodated.
Below are some testimonials from coaches that have used trainers for their teams:
“I loved the trainer program and so did my parents. So far, we are second in the division and the training program has helped!”
“I wanted to share with you how happy we are with the trainer we were given for the fall soccer season. He was assigned to us for 5 sessions and did a wonderful job with our 3rd grade boys. We have a great group of boys and he did a great job with balancing learning, being competitive and having fun. There is not a question that each boy has improved their footwork and is really enjoying the game of soccer. The feedback I have received from the parents has also been encouraging so we have signed up for a trainer in the spring season. “
“We signed up for a trainer again this spring. Our trainer did such a fantastic job with the boys. We literally saw progress from week to week. If a boy missed a training session, it showed! He really had the boys attention and made the sessions fun. We rarely had a player miss a session!”
