This summer, apply your skills through scrimmaging
Scrimmage Band is Avila Creative Soccer’s level-specific Tactical Scrimmaging Program! Soccer players chosen by their arm band color (see descriptions) will scrimmage each week on our indoor fields to fine-tune their tactical understanding of the outdoor game to make sure they maintain peak form for their club.
These scrimmages with players of the same exact level represent the optimal way to apply the skills your child has learned (learn more about Levels). 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.

The Scrimmage Band Program is by level only. If you are unsure of your child's level, call Coach Eryck directly at 512.924.5715 and your child can be assessed for any remaining spots. Visit our Levels Page or Scoring to estimate which armband pertains to your child's level.
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.
