Malcolm Gladwell theorized in his book, Outliers, that in order to master a skill a person needs a minimum of 10,000 hours of practice. In our current training environment, a player training 2 – 3 days per week for about 1.5 hours per session for 10 months a year for 10 years will only get approximately 2,250 hours of training.
How can we get closer to the 10,000 hours?
Here at the Dallas Texans we believe the After-School Soccer program would help our players get nearer to this goal. The program is designed to develop the techniques of each individual player.
Training schedule for the 2015-2016 season is as follows:
Aug 17 - Dec 17
Feb 15 - May 26
Please note: The location for this year's training will be the Dallas Texans' Lewisville complex
We require monthly committment from any player participating in the program
No more walk-ups or weekly payment options
4x per week - $375/mo
3x per week - $290/mo
2x per week - $200/mo
Payment must be submitted to the club no later than the end of the first week of each month
Checks collected at DTSC Lewisville
Please print and complete the following forms; players will not be able to participate in the After School Program until all forms are received.
Laura Adams (see Contact below) will collect all of the forms, as well as payment for weekly sessions.
We will do our best to predict any inclement weather and arrangements have been made to move to Inwood Soccer Centre. If a session starts outside, and is subsequently rained or stormed out, that session is considered complete.
