Our 2013 Pre-Academy Winter Program will run for 9 consecutive weeks on Sundays from January 6 through March 3 with a rainout make-up date of March 10 if needed. Modeled around the Fiorentina method, the sessions will be 1.5 hours long with the last 1/2 hour set aside for some small sided games. The program is open to Gryphons and non-Gryphons players.
Last year, this program greatly benefited our players in preparing them for the spring season, in developing their athletic and coordination abilities as well as psycho-motor skills that are universally beneficial for many sports. Note – Our Crickets, Super 7s and Team Academy programs will have an increased focus on building athletic abilities. Also, by popular demand, we will continue to offer a winter Grasshoppies program for 3 to 5 yr olds.
Our winter program sessions will be conducted at the Hillsdale High School turf field. Below are the timings for each of the Pre-Academy age groups.
|Grasshoppies||3-5 yr olds||9.30am-10:30am|
|Pre-Academy Crickets & Super 7′s||5-8 yr olds (not trying out for teams)||9.00am-10:30am|
