Summer Golden Ticket

Golden Ticket2

Announcing Avila Creative Soccer’s invitation-only Summer Tactical Program!

Once a week during the spring, hand-picked soccer players will scrimmage on our indoor fields to fine-tune their tactical understanding of the outdoor game so they can return to their clubs in peak form. Multiple position specific coaches will be on the field to deconstruct game situations, promote smart assertiveness, offer personal attention and open each player's eyes to new tactical possibilities. 

Our scrimmage program, known as Scrimmage Band, has 5 levels. 

  • Level 4: Golden Ticket Advanced
  • Level 5: Golden Ticket Elite (for older ECNL, Academy, Premier, College and pro-bound players)

These represent the finest players that have come through our doors. See a video of Jack, a Golden Ticket player called up to US U15 Boys National Soccer Team Camp.

The Golden Ticket Program is by invitation only. If you did not receive an invitation and want to be considered, fill out this form to have your child should be assessed for any remaining spots.

Golden Pledge

Possession is the Avila Brand

By enrolling your player in an Avila Scrimmage, you can be sure the art possession will be the focus. Possession is the Avila brand.

Eryck Avila's opinion

"Modern soccer must be played with some element of possession in order for it to be winning soccer. For whatever reason this is just a fact. It wasn't always that way. But it is now.

Not only do youth coaches not care much about possession, but they have proven that they have no idea how to teach it. The Renaissance has not reached us yet, soccer-wise. But we are in massive growth stage when the talent and skill level of players is begging for a higher concept."

Why is teaching posession difficult? 

Possession can not be broken down with a "machete",  what's needed is a "scalpel". Because Possession is actually five things, not one thing. Rest assured though, every player at Avila in the "Scrimmage Program" will be coached in 5 different ways to learn possession.
