Our coaches are truly passionate about what they do

Our goal is to open up the pool and all kids from all walks of life and financial backgrounds come to our facility to have fun playing soccer.

ZSA caters to the youth players between 5-15 years olds, whose parents want a hands-off but family-focused atmosphere where their child can have fun but learn the game of soccer in a shorter length of time.

Ages 10 + will focus more on the youth players that want to compete at the highest levels of soccer leading to a more focused approach on the player’s goal of achieving the next level.

We aim to provide soccer players with a positive, challenging and enjoyable learning environment with an emphasis on developing individuals that can excel as both players and members of the community.

Enthusiastic, player-centered coaching that facilitates and enhances player development without neglecting weaknesses through a holistic, individualized approach.

PHYSICAL PREPARATION

Player Physical Preparation

ZSA coaches know each player and they are trained in the ability to develop a player’s physical capacity in a safe and controlled manner.

  • This can improve physiological fitness.
  • As well as reduce the risk of injury.
  • Coaches understand the importance of considering the needs of players at different physiological stages and ages.

  • All Year Round speed development is linked to strength development.

 

  • Speed Training in EVERY warm-up!

 

Energy Systems

Our coaching staff understands the energy systems which are used by youth players. We evaluate and train on the type of movements that players complete in a match. Then we focus on how long an average player spends in possession of the ball and how to improve that short period of time on the ball.  Each coach will evaluate
