Summer Empire Futures Training League- Register Now! 

Cost: $65

July 28th - Sept. 1st 2020!

The Empire Futures Training League consists of one session per week, a combination of a training session and small-group play.  This modification from our usual format has been made to ensure the safety of our players. 

Program Times 

Tuesday Sessions

5:10PM-6:00PM: U8-U10 (Birth Years 2013-2010)

6:10PM-7:00PM: U12-U14 (Birth Years 2009-2006)       

Training Session

Our training sessions are a combination of technical footwork training, small-sided games, and differential learning opportunities that allow our players to develop the creative, decision-making skills they will need on the field in years to come.

You may find our players working through obstacles placed in the middle of their game fields, perfecting their footskills by dribbling with a tennis ball instead of a soccer ball, or playing through other distractions, like passing while playing catch with a friend, or checking their field of vision while pulling moves.    

Players will compete in small-sided games ranging from 1v1-4v4. Not only do these numbers help keep our kids safe, they also are the ideal numbers to best help our players developmentally- the less players on the field, the more touches each individual player gets on the ball! 

Covid-19 Modifications

  • Sessions are 1x per week. This will help keep contact with large numbers of people to a minimum. 
  • Players will be in a maximum of 9:1 ratio of players: coaches. 
  • Players will, after the first technical footskills session, be divided into small groups of 8 or 9 where they will remain for the rest of the season. This will also limit the number of people each child interacts with as they will be playing with and against the same kids each week.  
  • Spectators will not be allowed on the fields at this time. All players should be dropped off and picked up in accordance with guidelines. 
  • Empire Buffalo Return to Play Protocol. PLEASE READ!
