PSU Spring Player Excellence is Open to All Members Registered for the Spring 2022 Season
PSU players can take advantage of extra field time this upcoming season! In addition to regularly scheduled team trainings, current PSU members can participate in our optional Player Excellence program. And better still, our spring Player Excellence training is included with your registration at no additional cost!
We are offering five programs this spring: Dutch, Ball Mastery, Strikers, Goalkeeping, and Street Soccer, and most players have the opportunity to sign up for more than one program extending their time on the pitch each week. To learn more and sign up, expand the training you’re interested in below.
The spring session runs for eight weeks April 13-June 3. Training is designed and run by our highly experienced and licensed coaches.
Dutch is the ultimate game to develop our players’ passion, skill, and character. Think Street Soccer with a running scoreboard! Dutch allows our players to interact with friends and teammates, develop their own personality, and express themselves without worrying about what coaches might say. It uses the power of soccer to reinforce the character development already taking place in our programs and promotes our belief that kids should be able to manage themselves with the freedom to take ownership in their development. The program gives players the opportunity to create their own teams, make their own calls, solve soccer related conflicts, and subconsciously develop their technical and tactical awareness.

At Pewaukee Sussex United, we believe in empowering our players to achieve lifelong success through the game of soccer. Our goalkeeping philosophy is no different. Our current PSU goalkeepers, like outfield players, will enjoy the same specific training encapsulating key elements of any good program including technical, tactical, physical, psychological, and social. With our younger groups, we will provide a fun, safe environment where improvement of goalkeeping techniques is emphasized. For our older age groups, we will rely more on our cognitive ability and soccer IQ in decision making and other aspects of the mental game.
Stay at the top of your game! In this fun and safe environment, you will work on individual foot skills to develop comfort and confidence with the ball and learn various techniques to control and manipulate the ball for greater possession. Each session’s focus will be on the development of your technical skills and tactical awareness. Groups will be based on ability catering to both the more advanced as well as beginner players.
Improve your ability to score goals! The art of putting the ball in the back of the net is one of the most fun parts of soccer. It takes knowledge, practice, improvisation, and game like situations to develop the ability and instincts to become a killer goal scorer. Whether you are a center forward or a defender wanting to learn what your opponent is going to do next, this program has it all.
This program teaches the following scoring skills:
- Technical: Power shooting, breakaways, heading, volleying, one touch finishing, and toe pokes
- Tactical: Checking back, opening up, movement with and without the ball, combination play, and diagonal runs
In our Street Soccer program, players have the opportunity to create their own teams, make their own calls, and unconsciously develop their technical and tactical awareness–all while expressing themselves with the ball at their feet. We believe players should be able to manage themselves and have the freedom to play, interact, problem-solve, innovate, and take ownership of their participation in the game. Teams are created the day of to promote diversity, and games are played without referees to reinforce positive conflict resolution techniques. Our I-Mentor coaches will supervise each field making sure that players and facilities are safe while maintaining a fun and challenging environment.
