Micro Soccer offers 3 and 4 year olds the opportunity to begin to learn the basics of soccer.
Our recreational soccer program is getting ready for the Spring 2015 Season! This is very exciting for our sport, the club and our soccer community. The OGAA soccer club is extremely excited to welcome all new and veteran players & families and hope this Spring is a great experience for all!
The four (4) basic areas we consider as coaches headed into the new season:
1. Skills/Technique–These are the skills used to play the game.
2. Tactics–Tactics for youth soccer focuses largely on decision making.
3. Basic Tactics
Knowing which direction to attack and which goal to defend. Basic defending technique.
4. Intermediate Tactics
Understanding basic role of defenders, midfielders and forwards. Defending technique. ?Understanding the thirds of the field & preferred options in each “third”. ?Combination plays; Defending in pairs.
5. Advanced Tactics
Continue emphasis on fundamental and intermediate tactics. ?Overall team strategy?; Understanding role of specific positions
6. Psychological Development – For youth soccer, this relates to whether the player is having fun playing soccer, and other aspects such as how they deal with winning and losing, their level of motivation, and how they interact with teammates, coaches and their parents.
7. Fitness – Fitness for youth soccer players can be largely achieved by just letting them play soccer, although some of the older age groups may start incorporating speed and conditioning into practice games and activities.
Kickball is not just a game you played in elementary school! We offer an Adult Kickball League for those who want to get back to the basics of having fun. No practice (or skill!) required. This game is simple…two teams, bases, and a BIG RED BALL. Each team consists of 9-12 players, 4-6 of whom must be female. Games will be played at OGAA. Maximum of two games a week on Mon- Thursday. 8 league games, one night a week, and a single elimination tournament. Players must be at least 18 years of age.
Tee Ball Baseball is for boys and girls 4-5 years old who want to learn the fundamentals of hitting and fielding. In Tee Ball, players hit a ball off a batting tee. Rules of the game may be varied to accommodate the need for teaching. The primary goals of Tee Ball are to instruct children in the fundamentals of baseball and to allow them to experience the value of teamwork. Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in this introduction level of Little League.
Coach's Pitch Tball is only open to children ages 6-8 year old players and focuses on the continued development of the fundamental baseball skills of throwing, catching, fielding, hitting and base running. Games are up to 6 innings in length, with each inning consisting of three recorded outs by the defensive team or five runs scored by the offensive team, whichever comes first. Players bat against "live" pitching thrown by one of the team's coaches from a distance of 46', as it is our belief that hitting live pitching, rather than a pitch thrown by a machine, ultimately leads to better hitting development by teaching players to hit balls thrown in different locations at varying speeds.
Flag football is one way to introduce children to the game of football without exposing them to potential injury or continue to work on their football knowledge. Flag football eliminates tackling from the game by using flags tied around each player's waist. Players attempt to grab the opposing team member's flags to complete a play. Teaching children a few fundamental ideas to remember can help them improve their game. Flag football teaches children the fundamental skills necessary to play the game but also teaches them the value and importance of teamwork. Players should learn how to work as a team and how to watch the movements of the opposing team to prevent them from scoring.
