PLAY, PLAY PLAY!
Dedication towards improving your craft is something that Sal stands by and reminds his players of constantly. Players are strongly encouraged to play soccer wherever they want, whenever they want, and with whomever they want, as long as it’s ok with their parents. Sal believes that playing the game in many different environments can only help players develop. Players must spend countless hours training at home to become comfortable with the ball. Players must fall in love with training and want to play the game as much as possible! Sal and his staff believe that having a love for the game and playing with passion every time you step on the field is necessary to achieving success in this game. This is instilled in our coaches and is exemplified by the way they play and coach.
TRUST THE PROCESS...
Technique, Technique, Technique!!!! Our players will become technical players, starting as early as possible. Without the technical ability, you cannot play this game at a high level. All of our training sessions, from an early age, focus on developing 1 v 1 moves as well as the players individual technique. Nothing is more important in the game of soccer then having great technical skills. It’s what we stress and what we believe will take our players to the next level. Sure, players might make mistakes and our teams may lose games at an early age because of the way we’re teaching them to play, but if our players “trust the process” they will benefit in time and learn to play the right way.
Lastly, we are a family and have created an amazing culture between all of our players, no matter the age. Ask any of the current players or parents about the atmosphere at our sessions, camps, and clinics. Sal Caccavale Soccer Academy is an ever-growing family that believes in helping one another both on and off the field. Our former youth players always come back to help coach summer camp and hop in sessions, which allows the kids to see what it takes to get to the next level. The kids really love that! Our older players continue to be role models for the younger players and is something we are very proud of.
