OFF THE FIELD TRAINING (OFT)
At CCSC we work hard on developing our players to be students of the game. A big part of this process is the responsibilities players have off the field to be always looking to improve their soccer IQ.
All CCSC players are required to complete a Self Evaluation online to reflect on their Fall season performance. Coaches will then complete a Player Evaluation for every player which they will receive in January to refocus on the new year. Once the full year is complete and players resign with the club they will recieve another Player Evaluation to help them develop their game over the summer season.
Evaluations are formed on the 4 Pillars of USSF Soccer which are Technical, Tactical, Physical, and Psychological. Players will also receive videos to help them learn visually and it's also something they can go back to when they need reinforcement throughout the season.
Throughout Winter season players will do 30-45mins of OTF Training which helps develop their Soccer IQ. This has been a major development in our players over the years and this is something CCSC takes very serious. We have watched our players develop a deep understanding of the game and to listen to our players use soccer language in these sessions is something very special.
