Brazilian Soccer Schools, the world's leading technical soccer coaching program has made the Richmond Olympic Oval its first home in North America.
Brazilian Soccer Schools (BSS), whose graduates include world-class players like England's Wayne Rooney, Micah Richards, Michael Owen and Theo Walcott, is aimed at maximizing the natural skills of young soccer players between the ages of five and
16. BSS training allows players to become confident technically more quickly than other conventional youth soccer programs.
The program at the Oval is headed by Richmond Youth Soccer Association Technical Director Huw Harris. Growing up in England, Harris played both soccer and rugby competitively. He has coached a variety of sports and various levels including soccer for the last 12 years in Richmond.
"I have been looking for something different in terms of coaching," he says. "A methodology and philosophy which could fundamentally change how we approach coaching soccer to kids in this country."
A demostration will take place on Sunday at the Oval from 2-3 p.m. Children ages six to 12 are invited to participate and be taken through a unique and fun training session while parents will be educated on the BSS philosophy and model.
"The teaching methodology makes sense logically," added Harris. "The introduction of the Skills Badge Scheme applies measurement that both children and parents enjoy."
