ISC "POP" - Practice Only Program
The Practice Only Program is a part of our Intermediate Program Level in the ISC.
The "POP" program is also one of the three year round programs that we offer in the ISC. The three year round programs that we offer are listed below. The "POP" program requires the least amount of time commitment of the three year round programs that the ISC offers.
Year Round Programs
1) "POP"-Practice Only Program for any U9-U18
2) "POPPI" -Practice Only Program Plus Indoor-Only for U9-U14 players
3) Advanced Year Round Program -for any U9-U18 player
Why do "POP"?
The "POP" program is designed for young soccer players who want to make huge progress in their soccer skill development and for players who want to learn how to play the game better. As with ALL of the ISC programs, we offer only expert level coaching to all programs. Players in the "POP" program will train with our best coaches and receive the best instruction possible. They will also practice with all of the Advanced Year Round players.
What makes the "POP" program different from the "Advanced Year Round" level is that the "POP" players don't have any requirements in terms of game attendance, practice attendance, or tournament attendance. For some families it is a better fit for them to "ease into" our programs by choosing to take advantage of the coaching and skill development offered at practices before formally committing to a team and to traveling with the team for games and tournaments.
How To Register for "POP"
All players interested in the Practice Only Program, or "POP" program, will need to register for our Clinics and Tryouts in order to participate in the program for next year. By next year, we mean the 2013-2014 season, which starts in August 2013 and runs through July of 2014.
The clinics and tryouts for the 2013-2014 "POP" program start on Monday, June 3, 2013 and run through Thursday, June 20, 2013. The practices for the 2013-2014 "POP" program would start then either in early August for U13 and older players or in mid August for U9-U12 players.
