Friday Harbor FC

Introduction to the Fall 2020 Program

Free Virtual "at home" Soccer Training for Kids from Friday Harbor FC and Island Rec

"Play on" this fall with Friday Harbor FC in partnership with Island Rec! While it is not possible to have a typical season with teams, practices, and games, it IS possible to grow with soccer, have fun, and improve your game!

Our Friday Harbor FC Coaching Director is inviting players U-8 through U-15 (ages 7-14) to join in on a FREE six week "train at home" series of individual soccer activities beginning on September 12. No registration is necessary and no fee will be charged. Beginning and experienced players are encouraged to participate!

All you'll need is a ball, a few cones (or improvise with spare shoes, sticks or anything available), and ANY small area to play like your backyard, a local school or community field, perhaps even your living room on a few occasions!

If you want to participate and don't already have a soccer ball, Friday Harbor FC is here to help!

Simply plan to stop by Friday Harbor Elementary School on Saturday, September 12 between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM and we'll provide a free soccer ball with COVID-19 safe curbside pick-up. Please wear masks when you come. Just drive up to the front of the school, tell us your age, and we'll give you the proper size soccer ball that is yours to keep!

What will we do?

Through a weekly email with soccer training ideas and your own "at home" practices you will learn and improve ball control, juggling, passing, shooting, as well as a proper soccer warm up, perhaps even a little goalkeeping, some soccer fitness activities and more. There will be skill challenges, drill ideas and activities and a few other fun surprises along the way! For everyone's safety, there will be no in person practices and no face to face events. Everything will be done at home, or at a school or community field of your choosing at a time that works for your schedule.

Starting on Saturday, September 12, Coaching Director Randy Martin will send out a weekly email full of soccer content with themed activities, fun and brief instructional videos, and some important coaching hints related to that week's topic. Simply review the email and enjoy the videos. Anytime you wish to practices, you MUST get permission from your parent on when, where, and how you'll practice! Set a goal to practice at least once on the weekend and once during the week after school. Each week's content will then be posted on "Coaches Corner" page for your review at any time in the future.

Stay active, healthy, learn about soccer and improve your game for the future! You will automatically receive the first email on Saturday, September 12.

Thank you,

Randy Martin, Coaching Director
