Street Soccer Day to be Presented in September
27 Aug, 2014
US Youth Soccer has announced that Street Soccer day will take place on Wednesday Sept. 3rd during Fun Week.
The plan for Street Soccer Day is for clubs all across the United States to set apart this day as one where players come in to have pick-up games. This set up can be as organized or unorganized as the club desires. Clubs can even set it up to be a Play Day (which has evolved into the Human Development program - http://www.soccerindiana.org/education/hd.aspx) as envisioned by Vince Ganzberg, former Technical Director for Indiana Soccer.
Another way could be to simply encourage coaches to step aside at training sessions that day and let the players take charge. Regardless of how the club sets up the day, the idea is to give the game back to the players. Part of the thrill for the players is in knowing that other players just like them, all across the country, are having a game just like theirs.
Information on Street Soccer Day is available at US Youth Soccer official’s Sam Snow's Blog.
