Welcome back to the Chelsea Youth Soccer Academy!  This spring, Community Education will be continuing its partnership with Chelsea Soccer Club and the CHS soccer teams to offer a new style of youth soccer in Chelsea.  Youth will register by their age (ages 4 through 10) and will then work on developing their soccer prowess for six Saturdays.  Each session will be split with the first half being small group skills and drill work led by the coaches.  The second half of each session will be ‘small side’ scrimmages (3 vs. 3, 4 vs. 4 or 5 vs. 5) depending on age.

The benefits of this format include players developing essential coordination and motor skills that will benefit them in future athletic endeavors.  The ultimate goal is to provide as many touches on the ball for each youth as possible.

Each youth will need their own youth soccer ball.  Jerseys are provided with registration.  When purchasing your own soccer ball, size 3 will be used for ages
4 – 7 and size 4 will be used for ages 8 – 10.  Shin guards are recommended for the older ages, and cleats are not required.

While qualified coaching staff from the Chelsea Soccer Club will be coordinating the youth soccer academy, as well as girls from the varsity soccer team, we still will need many parent volunteers to make sure we are able to keep our skills groups small and insure great game play during our scrimmages.  If you are interested in being an assistant coach, you should not register online.  Please call the Community Education office at (734) 433-2208, Ext. 6074.  A mandatory training session for assistant coaches will be held in the CHS gym on Friday, April 13 at 6:30 p.m.  All assistant coaches should plan to attend the meeting
