Illinois Fusion uses iSoccer for Technical Player Development
We believe player development to be our first priority in accordance with USSF, AYSO, and NSCAA guidelines, and will be age and skill appropriate. We will not sacrifice player development for a team victory: Winning an athletic contest is at best a secondary goal of youth sports.
We look forward to helping them support their player development initiatives! Here are a few excerpts from the announcement on the Illinois Fusion website.
“Starting on February 13, Illinois Fusion will be using the iSoccer technical assessment and video training online platform to help improve and track the technical development of our players! The club would like to invite ALL Fusion players to the indoor training session on February 13 for the initial assessment.”
“The iSoccer Assessment will be taken throughout the year to measure individual and team development. Fusion coaches will also use the assessment results to build targeted technical sessions to supplement team training. This additional resource will provide players and parents guided video training instruction, carefully designed by our knowledgeable coaching staff, which can be downloaded to an iPod and performed at home.”
Established in 2007, the Illinois Fusion Soccer Association works to benefit the youth of Central Illinois by providing quality instruction in the game of soccer.
We focus on the development of each player, striving to find appropriate challenges so each individual is surrounded with players who can provide the proper setting and nationally licensed coaches who can create the proper environment to improve. We research the latest information on youth development from across the globe to insure we give our players the proper focus and tools to succeed. At the youngest ages, we look for incremental ways for players to measure success so they always feel they are improving. A player who feels he/she is improving is excited to train and has fun developing the skills necessary to become a competitive player as they grow older.
