Each Instructional Soccer League (ISL) will focus on four key building blocks to help teach the FUNdamentals of soccer in a positive and active environment:
Dribbling is taught through fun games, coach demonstration, and applied skills in small-sided games.
Kicking encompasses passing and shooting and is taught through fun games, coach demonstration, and applied skills in small-sided games.
Athletic Movement focuses on coordination, simple agility, and overall physical activity taught with and without the ball, through coach demonstration, and applied experiences in small-sided games.
Small-Sided Games are utilized to promote scoring, participation, basic concepts of team play, and to allow each child multiple opportunities to apply their skills and score GOALS!
