Our plan is to offer teams this winter for both boys and girls. The showcase teams are a competitive program comprised of registered players from Hampshire United SC who will be assessed/tryout for a roster spot on a team. Since each team will be participating in highly competitive tournaments, we are looking to fill each roster with the right players to be able to compete at the highest level. This means we don’t get locked into choosing from just one age group. If a player is talented enough to play at a slightly older group, they will be considered for that team. The coaches will be looking for players with high technical ability, good field vision, soccer IQ, and a learning attitude. We encourage all registered Hampshire United SC players to request assessment for these elite teams. We understand that during the offseason, several players cross-train with other sports, futsal, winter training and we don’t expect this will take the place of those things but to compliment it. Training times are typically at a convenient time in the evening or on the weekend and typically once per week. These training sessions will be delivered in a team setting where players will be exposed to intense trainings focused on speed of play (mentally and physically), functional technical training, transition of play as well as defensive and attacking tactics. This training will create a more confident, capable player who will take their play to the next level for club and school, alike.
