The Hot Shots Program

Hot Shots runs from early September to late October. Sessions are held on Saturday mornings and consist of three time slots of about 1 hour each. Participants would be in one of those time slots at 8:30, 9:30, or 10:30 am and all sessions are held at the Hot Shots fields at Hydes Fields.

Hot Shots soccer is an entry level, clinic style program for boys and girls who have turned 4 by the start of our soccer season. Teams focus on ball handling skills and basic rules of soccer (kicking, passing, hands free, sidelines, overhead throws, positions). The first 3-4 weeks consist of skills and drills and progress to mini-games for the remainder of the season. 

We have engaged Coerver United to provide training for our young boys and girls this year.   To find out more about their traing method used across the globe. More information is listed below or please visit their website.

Hot Shots continue to rely on the great volunteer “coaches” that sign up to be on field with the players. WITHOUT VOLUNTEER “coaches” teams can not be formed and the season will be delayed, and/or teams will be very large decreasing the amount of learning and fun for participants. We strongly encourage you to consider volunteering upon registration. No soccer skills or knowledge is necessary. Just follow the lead of the Coerver Trainer. This enables us as a volunteer organization to have the program and enhance the experience of every participant.

Coerver United Training has provided an overview of a typical session.  Please review and let us know if you have questions:

Below is the Outline for the Coerver First Skills Program 

1. Scrimmage (8-10 Minutes)  The goal of this is for our young players to experience the game as soon as they get to training. Players are usually so excited to start that if you start with a scrimmage it allows them time to experience the game and burn some energy. It also allows time for those late arriving families to jump in and not miss skill work or instruction. 

2. Skill Box (10-15 Minutes) Players will learn control dribble (Turtle Dribble) and speed dribble (Cheetah Dribble). Players will be taught to dribble with their laces and outside of the foot. We will teach other skills like boxes and toe touches. The final piece will be the Coerver Move of the Day. 

3. Fun Game (5-8 Minutes) Game will be fun and encourage players to use the Coerver Move of the Day. 

4. 1v1 Game (5-8 Minutes) Game will be goal oriented and will encourage players to use Coerver Move of the Day. 

5. Shooting (5 Minutes) Focus on proper shooting technique. (Striking the ball with your laces, not your TOES!) 

6. Scrimmage
