Philosophy:

At Riverfront United we believe quality soccer is achieved through possession, movement and creativity. As a coaching staff our goal is to create ideas and give players the tools to develop. We believe in positive reinforcement and providing a soccer education so players can learn the game from both a technical and tactical point of view.

Training:

At Riverfront we do team specific training, no groups. Each session plan has a topic and a specific goal. All session plans are carefully though out and overseen by Dany O’Rourke. Each session will incorporate a passing drill progressing into a possession drill. After working on this fundamental part of the game each session works then on the tactical side providing its players with insight on movement and tactical awareness.

Teams:

Riverfront provides teams for both girls and boys. It is our goal to provide teams at all ages. We work with players of all abilities also having players come up the ranks from our Micro Soccer, through our Developmental Academy.

Riverfront Micro Soccer: 2-6yr olds
In the micro soccer Academy young players learn to develop a love of the game and are introduced to the very basic fundamentals of the game. Our goal here is to get the young players developing a relationship with the ball and enthusiasm to play the game.

Riverfront Developmental Academy: 7-14
At the Riverfront Developmental program players learn to master the fundamental skills of the soccer player. A lot more drill driven and instructional the players will not only develop the technical side of the game but will also be instructed on how the game is played.

Riverfront United
The last step in reaching the top of the triangle. Here our players have reached a high level of technical ability. Riverfront United then turns to teaching its players on how to play the game introducing high level coaching on the tactical side of the game.
