Introducing Great Duos that Inspire your Child's Imagination

Wells Branch Soccer Association (WBSA) and Avila Creative Soccer are teaming up to provide soccer skills training that frees your child's creativity. WBSA 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, WBSA players can experience our strong reputation for developing highly skilled players and proven stability that shows the effectiveness of our approach.

With the Avila-WBSA collaboration, your player can take advantage of indoor training one day a week at our Round Rock facility (includes 1 Age-appropriate Small Group Class and 1 Specialty Skills Class). However, you must be registered with WBSA for the upcoming season to take advantage of this offer.

#2 Know your Avila Armband Level   

All Avila players now wear armbands that correspond to their Level. WBSA 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 choose "Club" in Exam Type.

Orange Ready (Provisional Scheduling)

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 than just a player's skills. A player's Level is more than just their skill level; it is 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 it 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 a sort of "Play-Up". The GREEN Level 3's train at 6:00-7:00 PM each evening.

If you follow these steps, your child may be able to train from 6:00-7:00 PM.
