NEW - Clinic PLUS for all 1st Graders! Check out our new FREE program for 1st graders!
The Glen Rock Soccer Club is excited to introduce Clinic Plus - a FREE new program exclusively for 1st graders already registered for the Club's fall 1st grade clinic program.
-- What is Clinic Plus? The program entails one additional practice session per week for 1st grade boys and girls in addition to their regular Sunday clinic. Players will practice with a professional trainer each week who will introduce players to new soccer skills and tactics, and help improve existing skills and players' understanding of the game of soccer.
Based on each team's performance and skill level, the teams may participate in one or more small mini soccer tournaments called festivals.
-- When and Where are the Extra Practices? The boy's team will practice on Tuesdays from 4-5:30pm and the girl's team will practice on Thursdays from 4-5:30pm. Both practices will be held at Wilde Memorial field starting September 13th (boys) and September 15th (girls). The final practice sessions of the season will be November 8th (boys) and November 10th (girls).
-- Who is Eligible? Any 1st grade player currently registered for either the 1st grade boys clinic or 1st grade girls clinic with Glen Rock Soccer Club this fall.
-- How Many Teams/Players will there be? There will be one boys team and one girls team. Each team will have a maximum of 12 players. Team registrations are first come, first served. If there is enough interest, we will consider adding additional teams.
-- What is the Commitment? The Club expects players to participate in all or most Tuesday or Thursday sessions for the entire season. While we realize and absolutely understand that things come up and players will miss an occasional extra practice, players who habitually miss the extra practices will be asked to withdraw from the team so a player on the waitlist can join and participate. A full squad of players each week makes for a much better practice session. We would also want as many players as possible to attend any soccer festival.
-- What's the Catch? Is it really Free? Yes, it's really free - there is only one string attached. As stated above, in exchange for a free program the Club requests that players attend all extra sessions.
-- You mentioned Soccer Festivals above. What are those? Soccer festivals are small mini-tournaments. Teams play 4 v 4 against teams from other clubs. At each festival, teams will play four, 20-minute games in a two hour period. The festivals we may participate in are all on Saturdays and the times are currently TBD. The festivals in which we would participate are in October, including a possible Halloween Festival the morning of 10/29 in Fort Lee.
