While the inception of the program brought many changes to campus last year, we continue to improve both on and off the field. In addition to the outstanding facilities that provide perfect year-round training conditions, numerous improvements continue to provide the resources and support necessary to conduct a full-time development program. A few of the major improvements are: • • • • •

Increasing the coaching staff to seven Addition of a new natural grass playing field with underground irrigation Expanded national scheduling providing increased exposure for our players Team shelters and electronic scoreboard constructed on the outdoor synthetic field Opening of the SSM Soccer House to accommodate coaching and administrative offices

Soccer at Shattuck-Saint Mary’s he soccer program at Shattuck-St. Mary’s School provides a unique developmental approach for young, aspiring players who are passionate about their sport and want a greater challenge than what is available to them in their local community. A fulltime residency program and a part-time youth academy are available for players to choose from based on their age, ability and interest. Inclusion in our school’s fulltime residency program is based on both an academic admissions process and an evaluation of playing ability.

T

weekends, afternoons or evenings throughout the school year. A program of competition providing 50-60 games against school, club, ODP or senior amateur teams is customized to meet the ever-changing needs of each age group team. In addition, every year our oldest teams attend two or more nationally recognized college showcase events that provide exposure for our college-bound athletes.

Residency Program ur fulltime residential program is the cornerstone of our curriculum and provides a full nine months of soccer development and training. This sport-specific program is part of the Center of Excellence programming offered by Shattuck-St. Mary’s and provides boys and girls with an outstanding college preparatory education while allowing them to be totally immersed in their sport. Players within our residency program train and compete on teams that are based on age and ability. This comprehensive program provides an environment similar to those found in youth academies at professional clubs world-wide.

O

daily regimen of individual and team training, soccerspecific conditioning, match competition, strength training and ongoing player evaluation is included in our fulltime program. Starting in September when school begins, players train daily following their classes and compete on

A

utstanding facilities provide perfect training conditions year round, regardless of weather. Players have access to some of the finest soccer facilities in the country. The Dane Family Field House provides our players with a full-sized state-of-the-art indoor synthetic field. In addition, an irrigated natural grass field and a second outdoor synthetic field are also available for training and games. All fields provide for a minimum playing dimension of 115x70 yards and are fully equipped with both full and small-sided goals for training and games.

O

elping athletes to stay injury free and healthy is an important aspect of our program. Our health and sport medicine center provides two fulltime athletic trainers, three fulltime nurses and a part-time nutritionist. These individuals provide daily treatment and care for the athlete as well as coordinating and overseeing any rehabilitation program for an injured player. Backing up our sports medicine staff are several area physicians who specialize in the treatment and care of sports injuries.

nother vital component of our program that keeps players in competition and enhances their performance is the School’s strength and conditioning center. A fully equipped strength training facility is utilized by all our teams throughout the school year. Supplementing this is the soccer-specific performance training that is integrated into the on-field training sessions. Focusing on the athletic qualities necessary for an elite athlete, players receive training to improve agility, balance, endurance, flexibility, starting speed and power.

A

erhaps the most significant factor of our residency program is the existing culture of Shattuck-St. Mary’s that allows for a fulltime program. Providing the ingredients described above on a consistent, long-term basis greatly accelerates a player’s individual development and game maturity. Integrating an academic and soccer development program under one roof allows the athlete to experience many other important aspects of school life during their time at Shattuck-St. Mary’s.

P

cademy programming provides age-appropriate training for boys and girls through three distinct developmental programs. These programs—Soccer Start, Academy Player Development Program, and Academy Select Teams—provide a supplemental training environment for over 300 young boys and girls.

A

he Soccer Start program provides beginning players and their youth coaches with an introductory skill development curriculum. The Player Development Program offers competitive players, age 8-16, a program of technical and tactical training aimed at improving their understanding of soccer through small-sided games. Our final academy program provides players age 11 and up, with the opportunity to train and compete as a member of an Academy Select Team.

T

n addition our Youth Academy organizes and schedules several youth tournaments and friendly games throughout the year. These tournaments and games provide each player with additional game exposure which greatly aids in their overall development.

F

Youth Academy part-time soccer development program for young boys and girls from Southern Minnesota is provided by our youth academy. Players in the Youth Academy utilize the same facilities and coaches as our fulltime program as well as selected college and youth coaches from the community. Players are provided a superior learning experience that enhances their overall soccer experience.
