Micro & In-House Rec Soccer Programs
The Twin County Soccer Association has been bringing the sport of soccer to this area for more than 35 years!!!
Twin County Soccer Association's Micro & Rec. programs are aligned with US Youth Soccer Player Development models and best practices, the ONLY local program that can make that claim. We are uniquely qualified to design a program to develop your child's love affair with the game of soccer. Come experience a youth soccer program unmatched in the area that will offer increased contact time and is focused on fun, learning, and player development.
The training provided to players in our Micro and Recreation level programs is provided by professional trainers from Global Premier Soccer (GPS). All GPS staff members are fully licensed coaches both in the United States & Europe and will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to each child. Through age appropriate curriculums and a methodology that has proven successful across many states, GPS & Twin County S.A. will ensure that players are given the proper instruction necessary to develop the technical fundamentals of the game at an early age and the tactical knowledge as they progress. No other program in the area is better equipped than Twin County S.A. is for preparing your child for future success in the sport while allowing them to enjoy the fun of learning and competition.
The aim of our Micro & Recreational program is to provide the youth of Brick Township and the surrounding area with a quality soccer program focused on player development and learning. Through the collaboration between Twin County S.A. and GPS our program offers young players the opportunity to train under some of the best training staff within the state. Of course, the opportunity to test those skills is provided through gameplay in both programs. Everyone gets a chance to play in our program with the emphasis on trying to get each player in for 50% of the game.
Our Micro & Recreational programs provide for the development & training of players with the intent of enriching the experience for the player. The structure of the program allows for all players to be placed in the most appropriate training environment that will eventually feed seamlessly into our more advanced travel teams. Starting at the U-8 level, Twin County S.A. fields boy's and girl's teams in the Ocean County Rec and MOSA Soccer Leagues. The player that wants to challenge themselves at a higher level is afforded the opportunity to tryout and be evaluated for a position on those teams.
