Breakfast Club:

8:00 - 9:00 Fitness, foot-speed, and agility training
9:00 - 10:00 Small sided pick-up
10:00 - 11:00 World Cup Games

Fees (per Player):

$5 per day (walk-ins welcome), $100 per Session (5 free days), or $195 full summer (11 free days).


There will be at least one Trainer/Supervisor on site from 8:00 to - 10:00 AM. After 10:00 AM, the players are on their own so parents should keep this in mind when planning to drop-off and pick-up. Invite your friends. This is a great way to get ready for afternoon pool time!! Ed Hawkins will be at the Breakfast Club sessions at least once per week to review the players and trainers as well as participate in the sessions.

Elite Group Training:

Elite Private Training for U-9 thru U-12 age groups will be Monday through Thursday. Players will be grouped based on experience level. Ed will personally run these sessions with a qualified assistant. Players will have 20 training dates (across the 5 week session) to get in 14 training sessions. No make-ups will be offered under any circumstances (weather or otherwise). Players may come more than 14 times if they like within a session to maximize the value of the program.

Fees are (per Player):

$500 per session (20 dates) and $850 for two sessions combined (a savings of $150) (40 training dates). Parents may also sign up for a package of 10 training sessions across the Summer 1 and Summer 2 at $400 and come when their schedule allows. However, in this case, you do not get the flexibility of training up to 20 sessions.

Elite Group Training Schedule (Monday - Thursday):

5:00 - 6:00 Technical Training Group A - U-9/U10 (Group A players will play pick-up at 6:00)
6:00 - 7:00 Technical Training Group B - U-11 (Group B players will play pick-up at 5:30 PM)
7:00 - 8:00 Technical Training Group C - U-12 (Group C players will play pick-up at 6:30 PM)

Curriculum for Elite Group Training:

The training plans will be 10 weeks (two 5 week sessions) of progressive training with each day focusing on a different dimension of soccer. If at all possible, it is important for elite players to join both the first and second sessions. Below please find the focus areas by day of the week:

  • Mondays - Technical Skills Training (advanced skill development)
  • Tuesdays - Functional Training (how to play different roles or positions)
  • Wednesdays - Tactical Training (how to identify and resolve situations)
  • Thursdays - Technical Skill Games (similar to games we played in the courts)
  • Fridays - Off

  • Note:

    We will make the program progressively more challenging as we move through the summer so to the extent possible it is important that your child start in the beginning and take the program through to the end. If you have to miss dates due to vacation or conflicts or just to take a break, I totally understand. If you are looking to buy a certain type of training (such as just tactics or just skills) and you want to select specific days, it is recommended that you take the option of buying 10 sessions at $400 and select the 10 days you want to be there based on what is being offered.

    Select Group Training:

    Select Group Training is held on the weekends and on Fridays as scheduled. Sessions are purchased in packages of 10 that span both summer session 1 and summer session 2. This program is structured similarly to the winter program where players meet the same time every weekend. Players are encouraged to form their own groups, but I can assist wherever necessary.

    Fees are (per Player):

    Group of 2 players - $600/player, Group of 4 players - $400/player, and Group of 6 or more players - $300/player. Individual training $1000/player for 10 classes

Groups will also play small-sided technical skills games to ensure that they put their skills to use in the correct context.
