2019 Season Program Offerings

 

The Addison United Soccer Club schedule is meant to have games at our level and games above our standard.  It is important to keep this in perspective and focus on the development of your child and the team.  It is important that our Club is not only put into tournaments and leagues in which they can win but that they are challenged with tougher experiences as well. The challenge of more difficult opponents should be welcomed and encouraged.  Part of this encouragement as parents understands that the team may not always win every game, and sometimes watching the players and team improve is just as, if not more important.

We learn valuable lessons each soccer season…  After much feedback from parents, players, and coaches, AUSC continually develops it’s program to best fit our soccer community.

***Note: The US Soccer Federation has put out new rules for age groups for starting the 2016-17 season and beyond.   Age groups will now be based on Calendar Birth Year as per the new US Soccer guidelines and adopted by the Vermont Soccer Association.  Age Destinations

Team Assessments: During the tryout process in November (Saturday, 11/10, 8-10 am and/or Sunday, 11/11 from 8:30-10:30 am at the Shelburne Fieldhouse), after the HS and MS seasons, athletes will be evaluated according to specific criteria related to; general fitness, soccer-specific skills, knowledge and understanding of the game, commitment to the team and sportsmanship, work ethic and willingness to improve in each of the other areas. Our Coaching Directors will assess each player at our scheduled tryouts and place players on the team that best fits their skill and will foster the player’s success.  Players will also be continually assessed during preseason team training on Sundays at the Vergennes Union High School to be sure their team placement is a good fit. *Addison United holds the right to move players into another age group or division if it is deemed to be in the best interest of the club.

Futsal: Futsal is a 5v5 indoor game played at the Fieldhouse in Shelburne, VT. Teams are 7-10 players allowing for substitutes. Games are 2/25 min and are held once a week. It is a fast, fun game that is great for teambuilding and foot skills.

Session III at the Shelburne Fieldhouse is included for all U12-18 players.  We have an opportunity to put some Futsal teams together for the Far Post league starting in November at their Essex Fieldhouse.

These would be informal AU teams, we would help facilitate the team formation and registrations but we would need volunteer coaches and this would be above and beyond the regular spring session.

Here is the information from Far Post…please indicate (info@addisonunitedvt.com) if you are interested and we can see if we have enough to put teams together.
