Introducing Great Duos that Inspire your Child's Imagination
Lake Travis Youth Association (LTYA) and Avila Creative Soccer are teaming up to provide soccer skills training that frees your child's creativity. LTYA has arranged skills training at Avila's nearby climate-controlled synthetic grass facilities. Sample a fun and unique approach to training and learn the fundamentals of creative soccer. Now, LTYA players can experience our strong reputation for developing highly skilled players and proven stability that shows the effectiveness of our approach.
With the Avila-LTYA collaboration, your player can take advantage of indoor training one day a week at our Lakeway facility (includes 1 Age-appropriate Small Group Class and 1 Specialty Skills Class). However, you must be registered with LTYA for the upcoming season to take advantage of this offer.
Take advantage of FREE training by following these steps:
#1 Choose your Schedule
LTYA players can attend indoor training one a day a week including:
- 1 Age-appropriate Small Group Class
- 1 Specialty Skills Class
The two sessions must be done back to back on the same day, meaning if you choose to attend the Small Group session on Tuesdays at 5:00 PM, the Specialty Skills session must also be done on Tuesdays at 5:30 PM.
#2 Know your Avila Armband Level
All Avila players now wear arbmands that corresponds to their Level. LTYA players attending Avila sessions must wear armbands as well. Avila Soccer will provide the armbands during each session (please remember to leave them at the facility).
If you don't know what level your child is, you can schedule a complimentary Assessment to find out. Please write LTYA player in the additional comments.
Orange Ready (Provisional Scheduling)
If you follow these steps your child may be able to train from 6:00-7:00 PM
Creating a tool to measure performance has not been easy. Avila Creative Soccer was open for 13 years before fully implementing what has become our signature test. Technically, we refer to it as a Performance Assessment, not a Skills Assessment, in that it rates more then just a player's skills. A player's Level is more then just their skill level; it is the the sum of many moving parts.
To think of the quality of a player's skill as something which is quantifiable is difficult at best. Then couple that with the notion that even if a player can demonstrate skill in a laboratory it doesn't mean that player can perform at a level commensurate with said skill level when it counts - meaning on game day. Performance is also about attitude and awareness. The attitude to compete, the tactical awareness to take advantage of time and space.
We found that differences between players are intricate and turns out that among the different colors and levels, we also have to have sub levels which you may have noticed referred to as New, Ready and Brand. And even that doesn't always go far enough to get player placed in the correct group. In particular, Level two or Orange has been the most challenging group of kids to characterize. So what we have done to help us accommodate certain players in better fitting groups is offer a process for "Orange Ready" players who would normally only be allowed to train between 5:00-6:00 PM. NOW, SUCH PLAYERS can be placed provisionally with the GREENS as sort of "play-up". The GREEN Level 3's train at 6:00-7:00 PM each evening.
