SOCCER



  • 2020 FUTSAL SKILL SESSIONS

    Come try the exciting sport played around the world that contributed to the development of famous soccer players like Messi and Ronaldo. Futsal is a fast paced 5v5 small sided soccer game that emphasizes technical skill in high pressure situations that easily translates to the outdoor game. Played on a hard indoor surface without walls and using a smaller low bounce ball, futsal allows players a greater number of touches and lots of goal scoring opportunities.

    Futsal Skill Sessions are a perfect fit for soccer players who want flexibility over the winter months or are involved in other winter sports while still getting touches on the ball.

    To offer the best value, if you register for one program you can attend both at no additional cost. In other words, sign up for the field player session and attend the goalie session for free or sign up for the goalie session and attend the field player session for free. All for $35!

SPRING ACADEMY 2020 | U6-U10

  • Birth Years: 2014-2015 (U6) Coed

    ORYA’s youngest soccer program meets once per week and utilizes stations during each session to introduce players to fun games which focus on a specific skill being introduced. Players move from station to station, use their imaginations, build coordination and, hopefully, begin to develop a lifelong passion for the sport. We’re always in need of a few extra volunteers to support the program and will provide a full curriculum for the program.

    Uniform shirts can be reused from season to season. Only order if you do not have one or otherwise need a new one.

    *Note 2015 birth year players must have turned 4 by the start date.

  • Birth Years: 2012-2013
    (U8) Coed/Girls

    This program steps up to twice per week sessions with a mid-week practice day and a Saturday morning ‘game’ day. Players continue to develop skills through fun games and exercises that incorporate their imaginations to get them excited about specific exercises they’re being introduced to. Saturdays turn into fun, non-result based ‘games’ where small sided play is the focus. Game day offers players an introduction to soccer competition in an in-house environment where quality of play and building on what was learned at practice is the judgement of success.

    Uniform shirts can be reused from season to season. Only order if you do not have one or otherwise need a new one.

  • Birth Years: 2010-2011
    (U10) Coed/Girls

    ORYA’s last completely in-house program offers twice per week practices and in-house games on Saturdays. Players begin to experience more structured practice sessions where building technical skills & small sided play are more overtly apparent. Fun games and exercises are still utilized to peak interest and build skills but coaches begin to increase expectations and build towards individual skill & small sided play milestones. Saturday games are still non-result based with success still being judged on the quality of play within the game rather than the end result.

    Uniform shirts can be reused from season to season. Only order if you do not have one or otherwise need a new one.

SPRING TRAVEL SOCCER 2020 | U10-U14

  • 2010 (U10) Boys

    ORYA’s U10 program utilizes a blended model of our skill building Academy Program and our Travel Soccer Program. Players will experience a more structured practice session where building technical skills and love of the game are still the number one priority, but tactical concepts such as “shape” are introduced in small sided play. Participants will practice twice a week and have the opportunity to test their skills and age appropriate tactics with Saturday 7v7 games against local towns. This blended model ensures the proper foundation is set for players to enjoy success for years to come.

    2009 (U11) Boys

    Stepping up to 9v9, this age group takes the next step up in field size and number of players. While coaches continue to develop individual ability, more team tactics are introduced so players get more comfortable in game play. Playing time will remain as equal as the games allow.

    2008 (U12) Boys

    The final year of 9v9 offers a continuation of developing the individual in a team environment where passing, shape and style of play are continually progressed. Playing time will remain as equal as the games allow.

    2007 & 2006 (U14) Boys

    Now playing on the full sized 11v11 field players are introduced to the game as they’ll play it the rest of their life. With more players comes new positions, shape and team concepts. Coaches continue to have fun and offer equal playing time but the team and each individuals ability to contribute to the whole is a primary focus.

SPRING TRAVEL SKILLS 2020 | U11-U14

  • OPEN TO 2009-2006 BIRTH YEARS

    This program allows players the ability to receive high-level training with UNH Men’s Soccer Staff coaches and the freedom to pursue other interests. This is also a perfect option if your age group simply didn’t have enough players to field a team. While the program does not include live games against other teams, it does provide a tremendous opportunity to train under a highly experienced and credentialed coach in preparation for the fall while leaving weekends free for other springs sports. Sessions would focus on improving fundamental skills such as dribbling, finishing, and defending among others.

    Feedback from Spring of 2019
    “He loved attending, gained new skills and a great appreciation for the sport. He often mentioned how inspiring he found the coaches to be.”
