The WSA Developmental Training Program has been established to offer Westport travel soccer players the opportunity to train an extra day of the week, get more touches on the ball, make more decisions and build their overall confidence.The program curriculum is focused on the individual player and is not a team based training program. This program is meant to compliment the WSA travel soccer program.
Through a discipline, competitive and nurturing environment, training sessions will focus on agility & coordination, individual technique, small-sided play, and leadership skills. Training sessions will be structured, competitive and high energy, with the goal of developing individual skills and confidence.Responsibility, Discipline and Hard Work are expected of each player
