Skills Training: First Hour
Strength Training: Second Hour
Strength Training: First Hour
Skills Training: Second Hour
Those players signed up for Advanced Training through Premier Level are players who are more committed to soccer. They are interested in further improving their skills independent of the regular training day and are willing to pay extra to get additional training. Having said that, Addison United expects that those in the advanced training sessions come ready to listen and participate with the fullest attention of the instructors. Players who are not able to listen to directions may be dismissed from the program w/o a refund. Other expectations include showing up on time, space and time are limited, starting on time is essential.

Inclement Weather Policy
Please know that the Club’s primary concern is always for the safety of our players, families, and staff. When your School District closes school due to weather, most likely club activities will also be canceled. Information about the canceled club activities due to inclement weather will be posted on Club’s website and Facebook page. If weather conditions change (improve or deteriorate) throughout the day, or if the club activity is not scheduled on a school day, the Club will also post information on our website and Facebook page as necessary. Assessments of the weather, the weather forecast, and road conditions all factor into the Club’s decision to cancel activities. These assessments take place across a broad geographical area, and conditions in your neighborhood or on your route to/from club activities may differ from the rest of the region. If you are concerned that it is not safe for you or your child to be on the road, please do not hesitate to stay home. The final decision about coming to club activities in inclement weather is yours.
Website/Facebook: The Club will post information on our website and Facebook page as necessary.
Email: An email will be sent to parent’s primary addresses from their player’s coach/team manager.
