YDA Fall Program - O'Fallon, MO

The fall YDA program will consist of a 10 week program. The program will be broken down by age group.

Missouri Rush’s YDA program is a program specifically designed for young athletes. We have spent the last several years developing a curriculum and training method that is in line with the US Soccer Federation player development initiatives and available research from top child psychologists and behavior and development experts.

The focus of the YDA is the individual player. Players will learn to be more comfortable and confident with the soccer ball on their feet. They will learn ways to beat defenders 1v1 and will introduced to small group attacking ideas and tactics. They will receive instruction on defending in 1v1 situations as well as an introduction to small group defending. All the while they will have more fun than ever. One of our mottos is the if they are having fun you can’t teach them fast enough. We will allow players to express themselves. We encourage risk taking as a way to develop problem solving. We use this program to teach players how to think for themselves. We don’t always give the answers. Sometimes we allow the players to explore the possible solutions to problems and find the one that works for you. This method is commonly called guided discovery and is widely accepted as a top teach method.

To boil it down to a couple of points, the kids in the YDA will have fun, learn about soccer, and learn how to think and solve problems. We hope that you will join us.

All YDA training will take place at the Missouri Rush Sports Park
