This fall, Fairfield high school soccer teams enjoyed an unprecedented run in the playoff season: the Fairfield Ludlowe boys team won their first ever FCIAC championship, the Fairfield Warde girls team reached the State Championship finals and the Fairfield Prep and Fairfield Warde boys teams also qualified for the State Championships. Why this sudden wave of success?
Rodrigo Nunes, Director of Ole Soccer points to systematic – and early – soccer training as a key factor: “Sports are similar to academics – the earlier and more regularly that children are exposed to social situations and activities, the better they do at school.”
For the high school teams, 2014 was also the first year the team players had been training 6-7 years ago as part of the town’s travel soccer program; over 90% of the teams were former travel players – and Ole Soccer students.
As the leading youth soccer organization in SW Connecticut, Ole Soccer not only provides the technical coaching for all Fairfield united teams, but also offers a wide range of training programs for even the youngest players – starting with ourOle Stars program for 3-year olds.
“Whatever sport your child will play in high school, youth soccer is an ideal foundation for fun and success. Kids can play almost immediately and quickly develop the essential attributes for future athletic success,” adds Rodrigo Nunes.
We look forward to seeing you at the Ole Soccer Arena,
