Winter Futsal: Player Development & Play


Instructor: Dan Ferrando
8 weeks
Dan Ferrando's Winter Futsal: Player Development & Play is for players who truly have a love for the sport and want to improve their performance. Futsal is where many of today’s soccer players develop their soft touch on the ball. Due to the fast and quick playing surface, players have to develop their gentle touch to properly control the speed of the ball. If your child loves soccer and has a hunger to improve his/her skills, this class will be a real stepping-stone in their development. We will focus on individual foot skills, and play small sided games. My focus with all my players is to develop confidence, a love for the game, and have fun doing it!

FirstStepSoccer


Instructor: Dan Ferrando
7 weeks
This is where young aspiring soccer players come for their first soccer experience in our "FirstStepSoccer" Program. Here, they are challenged with fun drills requiring them to think on their own (decision-making), and use both feet (insides, outsides and bottoms). All drills are age-appropriate and achievable and intended to boost their confidence. When confidence is built, our students are inspired to take on the "NextStep." We know athletes develop more quickly in small groups, which allows for more individual attention.
Remember to wear your black shorts, socks, cleats and shin guards - and bring a water bottle!
At NextStepSoccer Academy, we require each student to show proper behavior on and off the field. We strongly believe in developing their soccer skills, but know "life-skills" will benefit them throughout their lives.
Dan Ferrando is the owner of NextStep Soccer Academy. He has played in Germany, at USF, coached Drake High School boys, Select Class 3 and Select Class 1. No class: 4/9.
