- Students must be at least 14 years of age by the test date.
- Students must complete six online modules prior to the class.
- The class will be five sessions long.
- Students must attend all of the sessions and pass the written test during the last session.

9:15 – 10:00 Technical Training: Working on players’ confidence with the outside of their foot. First touch with the outside, second touch with the inside, then go to goal!
10:00 – 10:45 Small Sided Game: Working with players to be more skillful and to make more, less-complicated decisions. Encouraging the use of the outside of their foot.
10:45 – 11:45 Power and Finesse
12:00 – 1:00 Lunch
1:00 – 1:15 Warm up: Cheesecakes
1:15 – 2:00 Expanded Small Sided Game: Working with players to be more physically efficient in their space, giving players more opportunities to play on both sides of the ball, and more opportunities to score goals!
2:00 – 2:45 Scrimmage – Have fun!
2:45 – 3:00 Cool down

Special Needs Director, Sue Vaughan and VP of Girls Club Soccer, Danielle Albrecht have been named as the 2013 TOPSoccer Buddies of the year by Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer (EPYS).
