Layton Strikers is one of the oldest soccer clubs in the state of Utah. Through the years the club has had many successes in league and State Cup play, and has seen many players continue their soccer careers at the collegiate level.
The club has several teams in various age groups for boys and girls. There are teams at both the District and State levels. The club holds a tournament in August of each year, and it is typically one of the largest tournaments in the state.
Just wanted to say thanks to Eric Landon and all the coaches who atteneded our training session. Hope to see everyone there next month
Youth soccer coaches of all levels should place an emphasis on coaching technique, setting aside a proportion of training to include repetition of this skill. It is this time that will allow the coach to support the growth of a players technical knowledge and help to in-grain the correct movements so they can be repeated outside of their organised training session. This will ensure that the technique that is becoming part of the players skill set is effective. Professional clubs across the world have become aware of these technical problems and some choose to employ a technical coach, who trains each squad in a separate session, focusing solely on correcting technique. These coaches design sessions that allow the players to repeat the skill and improve muscle memory, but more importantly give them a chance to repeat this technique in a game like situation repeatedly.
