Sting Soccer Club proudly presents the San Antonio “Emerging Talent Academy” (ETA). Sting’s Emerging Talent Academy is an exclusive program that serves to provide Sting Soccer Club Academy players with supplemental training to further enhance awareness and ability in several areas – most notably technique.

 

Developed by our ETA committee, the program is an extension to the Sting Soccer Club curriculum. Players’ are further challenged to develop the technical and tactical expertise to succeed at the highest levels of play. The 2020-21 Cycle will serve players born in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016

ALL Academy Players are eligible to sign up: No Invitation needed!

Technique is the foundation…..throughout the 2-phase curriculum. Phase 1 is an 8 session curriculum from September to December 2020. Phase 2 in an 8 week curriculum from February to May 2021.

The ETA is an elite environment that strives to prepare players for the demands of select soccer. Attendance at all sessions is mandatory and an adherence to a strict code of conduct absolutely necessary. Parents are exempt from observing from close proximity during field sessions. Failure to comply will result in immediate exclusion from the program.

Aside from the obvious benefits such as improvements in playing ability through expert teaching and added repetition, other benefits include:

- Player Identification: Coaching staff are able to better engage in player identification for potential selection to Select Soccer and Elite Team Programs / Pathways in future years

- Club Culture: Players are able to engage with various staff members and players from other teams within the Sting organization. An opportunity for players to take advantage of a vast knowledge and experience amongst the training staff. Whilst also, engaging with other players who may in the long term become a teammate and friend!

- Club Philosophy: Players are further taught foundational techniques, terminology and principles of play that align with the club’s vision and philosophy. Transition to the higher levels of play within the organization becomes much more ‘fluid’ - further enhancing the ability for success / impact.

- Accelerated Individual Development: ETA has zero focus on team preparation for weekend games or team tactics. The program focuses only on individual technical development through maximum meaningful repetition throughout each and every session.
