CSSE Training - Soccer Dreams Begin Here

CSSE runs programs all year to help players advance their skills and understanding of the game. We have programs for Elite training, Advanced Training, Academy Showcase Teams and College/University Showcases.
The difference at CSSE is the training system, the development of players and the professional dedication of the coaching staff. Coaching is about teaching and we strive to create the best learning environment possible for players. Players are continually assessed to help players and parents understand the elements of becoming a complete player. Our coaches push these players to the next level and challenge them to be the best they can be.
CSSE is more than a Soccer School.
CSSE is not just for IMPACT players. The academy helps young players of all abilities to advance their game. One of the foundations of our program is to have "like-skilled and like-minded" players train together. We have training groups for high-level Academy Impact players as well as training groups for beginner players.See "programs tab" for more information.

SuperChicos Training Program
Training program for kids ages 5-9. Once per week training with a focus on fun and getting comfortable with the ball.
The primary years of soccer are the most important times for your child to build CONFIDENCE as they develop their soccer ABILITIES and have FUN!
Active Start (First Kicks) Ages 5-7 - This is an introductory stage whose objective is to get children moving and to keep them active. No competitive games will be involved. The technical requirements are simply encouraging children to play with the ball by kicking, dribbling, and shooting.
FUNdamentals (Fun with the ball) Ages 8-9 - Coaches will create a stimulating learning environment about “freedom and fun”. Technical development focuses on getting a feel for the ball when receiving, passing, dribbling, kicking, and shooting.
Elite Training Program
The Elite Training Program is for athletes that need to tap into the technical expertise of professional coaches while still participating in sanctioned club activities. This program consists of training once per week, all year round.
The Elite Training Program is for players with a commitment to excellence. Our goal is to develop and strengthen your play and to challenge you to higher levels. We also strive to create future opportunities for your soccer career. Written evaluations are provided twice per year after each session (Winter and Summer)
The Elite Training Program starts at age 10 in the U12 group and each age group thereafter. The U12 Junior Chicos group trains exclusively together, whereas the older ages train with the Academy athletes in the proper age grouping from U14 to U18.
The Academy Program represents the ultimate training plan.
These athletes are considered full-time students of CSSE and should consider the Academy as their first priority in sports. The program is based on 2 - six month sessions and can only be joined at the start of each session. (May and October)
The Academy Program within CSSE is primarily a competitive, travelling program. The players are placed on teams within the same age groupings and travel to tournaments throughout the year as well as intensively training 5-6 days per week.
Athletes between the ages of 13 and 18 are trained by professional coaches.
*Intense training that enhances performance
*Higher-level peer play
*Smaller player-coach ratios
*Individual player attention
Acceptance into the Academy Program is based on direct invitation and tryouts. Individual tryouts may be arranged upon request. There is no charge for tryouts. If you are not selected for the Academy Program, you have the opportunity to register for the Elite Training Program. Players in this program will also be developed and evaluated very closely for their future potential in the Academy Team Travel Program and other programs.
Within the Academy Program is the Keeper Training Program. It is vital that the Keepers can train with the out-players, and also specifically train at least once per week. Goalkeepers usually do not reach their prime until their mid-30’s for men and late 20’s for women. It takes years of practice and experience to truly be a great keeper. In a soccer game the keeper is your last line of defense, and the first point of an attack all at the same time, making his/hers a vital role to every team. At CSSE we will focus on giving the players the basic tools needed to become a great goalkeeper. Each class will build on the basic skill set that each keeper needs. Techniques include footwork, ball handling, shot stopping, diving, taking high balls and crosses, starting position and angled approach, defending free kicks, as well as receiving a back pass and distribution. The keepers in the program will be challenged and you will be a more confident skilled keeper with the basic building blocks of the technique in becoming a great keeper.
High Performance Group Training
High Performance Group training with Chico is for 3-4 players at a time that strive for excellence. Players are required to outline specific goals and items that they want to work on before being accepted for this very intense program.
