TRAINING PROGRAMS

SSC occasionally partners with an outside organization in the Fall to provide technical training for our PreK - Grade 8 players. Further information will be coming soon from our Player Development Committee.  A quick summary is below, which is subject to change:

  • The training for Travel Players Grades 3-8 will be required (Fall Season only)
  • The training for Town Players Grades PK-2 will be strongly recommended (Both Fall and Spring Seasons)
  • This training will be included within your registration fee.
  • The Fall training schedule will be released as soon as it is available.
  • We know that some schedule conflicts are going to occur, but we strongly encourage all eligible players to attend. Club players who are already receiving technical training would not be expected to attend, but would be welcome if schedules allow.
