Developmental Stages of Soccer

In youth soccer, players and teams aged 12 and younger are classified as “Zone 1”. Teams in ages 13 to 16 are considered “Zone 2” where the full game of 11 v 11 is played on a full field. The higher levels of competitive soccer are seen at 17 years and older. These soccer developmental zones could be (relatively) compared to our school system of elementary, middle and high school.

For New Prague Soccer Club, “Zone 1” includes players born in and between 2009 and 2013. This age range serves as the highest priority developmental space for youth soccer players.

The club recognizes kids grow and develop at their own pace, both in life and in youth sports. The development of social-emotional and physical skills are crucial up to and around the age of 12.

The primary goal of our developmental age pools is to guarantee all players receive consistent and high quality training and experiences. Our “Zone 1” coaching will focus on the root of the game and include fundamental skills, functional movements and game concepts. Besides skills learning and activities, it is paramount that players experience a sense of belonging in a positive social setting.

Pool practices will also serve as a continued cycle of player assessment that will better aid in future player placement in the formation of NPSC teams. These additional, lower pressure assessment opportunities can help ensure all kids in an age range are familiar with the club coaches and the club knows more about its players. We believe this approach will help in the transition of players into larger rosters and bigger games at 11 and 13 years old.

Club pool practices should take place at least one a week. This day per week will be in the place of what would otherwise be a single team practice. Pool practices will be offered for all teams and players in Zone 1. Coaches from each team shall collaborate and manage sessions.

The priority of our Zone 1 pool practices will be to ensure the club and coaches provide common training, common learning opportunities and a common, positive social experience. The priority of coaching in both pools and our teams need to include skills learning, all field position experience and most important a sense of belonging in a positive social setting.

As for your team, please realize the games and practices in Zone 1 are small sided by design.  This ensures increased individual play repetitions and interactions with the ball. To retain young player interest, all coaching must balance challenge and fun. We realize families will naturally want to compete and keep score. After all, soccer is a “sport”. That aside, it is critical for parents to realize that teams in “Zone 1” should not prioritize formal team results or player statistics.

If you have any questions, please email the club at: npaysc@gmail.com.

Thank You,

New Prague Board of Directors
