Winter Scrimmage Matches

This winter, apply your skills through scrimmaging

Apply the skills you learn through Avila Creative Soccer’s level-specific Tactical Scrimmaging Program! Soccer players chosen by their wrist 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.

Our Scrimmage Program includes:

  • A 4v4 format
  • Avila-certified trainers injected into the games
  • An emphasis on the Art of Triangles and Passing Lanes
  • Off-the-ball Movement is totally demystified
  • Position-specific techniques explained with laser focus
  • Players taught to work as a unit

These scrimmages with players of the same exact level represent the optimal way to apply the skills your child has learned. 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.

This scrimmage 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 to estimate which arm band pertains to your child’s level.

More information

The Scrimmage program is designed to put your developing player in a formal scrimmage situation that mimics the real game. In this program, scrimmaging is broken down into its elements and treated like skill that can deconstructed.

It’s first-come, first-served with limited spots available, and is only offered now in-between the Fall and Spring season when players need optimal parameters of development. For that reason, it’s sold in conjunction with with our Winter Immersion Program.

Avila is committed to creating groups that are even in experience and skill. If for some reason the player is assessed at the wrong armband level, we will offer other options that benefit both the group and the individual.
