Fall YDA starts September 9th!
 

What is the Kings Hammer Youth Development Academy (YDA) Mission?
The mission of the Kings Hammer YDA is to provide a player-centered technical training environment. Players will be taught by KHSC staff. We strive for a new victory each week; each victory represents something new - a new skill, a new juggling record, a new piece of knowledge for the game, etc. YDA players will compete and improve technical abilities. We welcome players of all experience levels, both from within the club or new families.
 
Where is the YDA held?
YDA Central is held at Town and Country (1018 Town Drive, Wilder, KY 41076).
YDA East is held at Four Seasons Soccer Complex (4609 Kellogg Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45226).
Games will be held at both locations (see schedule below)
 
What is the Schedule for YDA?
The Fall Session will begin the week of September 9th, 2015. Practices will be held once per week at your chosen training location for six weeks. Times will be as follows: U4-U6 will practice from 5-6pm and U7-U9 will practice from 6-7pm. Games will be held once per week (9am on Saturdays) and will alternate between the locations.

What are the benefits to your child?
It has been statistically proven that children who are having fun and are given the chance to participate in a sport with friends want to play more and tend to stay active in the sport they choose. The YDA gives your child the chance to make new friends while still getting to play for their local team and with their friends. Our program gives every player the opportunity to train in a professional environment without the pressures of league standings and game results. This is an environment where each child gets to develop at their own pace and have fun while doing it. This is a benefit no other training program in this area offers.
 
What does the curriculum look like?
1. Ball Mastery – We endorse the importance of ball familiarity - Acquiring new ball skills; using all parts of the foot; keeping eyes up while dribbling (under control) at multiple speeds.
2. Receiving and Passing – YDA players are challeneged to become familiar with striking and receiving the ball using both feet
3. Finishing – Who loves the glory of scoring a goal? Players will have ample opportunities to master the techniques of striking the ball and how to create their own shot.
4. Coordination – The YDA provides players the training to improve balance, speed and power.
5. Principles of Attack – Through 3v3 and 4v4 play, YDA players develop a knowledge of attacking concepts such as depth, width, mobility and improvisation
6. Principles of Defense – The YDA teaches the importance of control and constraint when defending. Concepts of the first, second defender/attacker and their roles are covered.
 
What is the cost for the YDA?
Fall YDA: Games and Training- $80/player per seasonal session, 6 week program. All participants will receive a t-shirt to wear to each training session and to games
 
What should my child/bring wear?
Players should wear black soccer shorts, black soccer socks, shin-guards, YDA T-Shirt (provided on first day), soccer shoes and a smile! To each training session and game, players should bring a fully inflated, size 3 soccer ball; a water bottle; excitement for the game!
 
How do I register my child for the YDA?
All registration must be done online by using the link above. In order to create a proper player development environment, registration will be limited.

Congrats to the U17 KHA Red girls for advancing to the National Semi-Finals!

Congrats to the U17 KHA Red girls for advancing to the National Semi-Finals!  The team went 2-1 in group play scoring 3 goals and conceding 3.  They play Beach FC in the final Saturday at 8 am (central).  Good luck to the girls!  Watch the game live here: http://championships.usyouthsoccer.org/800_am_field_7__u17g/

Congratulations U17 KHA Girls Red!

Congratulations to the U17 Kings Hammer Red girls who captured the club’s third Region 2 Championship on Wednesday.  The girls started out their Regional play by defeating Centennial from Minnesota 3-1 and Sporting JB Marine from Missouri 4-0.  They advanced to the semis to play Kentucky Fire where they won 2-1 in a thriller of a game, scoring late in stoppage on a corner kick to go up a goal.  They met Michigan Jaguars in the finals to win 2-0.

The girls will continue their awesome year as they head to Nationals in Oklahoma.  Their overall record thus far is 22-1-9 with 74 goals for and 13 goals against.

The U16 KHA RED girls are also attending as they won their National League bracket back in March!

Nationals are July 21-26 and are held in Tulsa, OK. 

Good luck to both teams moving forward!

Congratulations to KHA Girls U16 Red!

The 16 girls traveled this past weekend to Las Vegas for the season finale of the National league games.  The national league is comprised of the top 16 teams in the country.  The top 2 teams in each group get an automatic bid into the national championships in July.

Coming into the weekend the girls were in third place behind Beach FC (Cal South) and opened up play against them on Friday.  KHA started the scoring on a free kick delivered by Payton Black to Sophie Gorman, who scored the header.  A great defensive effort by the whole team got the girls the 1-0 win, to move into second place in the group.

The next day, the game didn’t get any easier facing the national semi-finalist Pride Predators (Colorado).  KHA opened the scoring quickly as Ally Brown delivered a great cross to Sarah Schuh for a first time finish one minute and fifteen seconds into the game.  The girls continued to battle the 80-degree temperatures and stay strong defensively, but gave up a late goal off a set piece as the game ended in a 1-1 tie.

The last and final day we competed against the Syracuse Development Academy (NY West).  Going into the game KHA needed to win and get some help from Pride Predators in the other game against Beach FC.  Both games being played right next to each other made for an intense environment.  The girls beat Syracuse DA 4-3, with goals from Jess DeJesus, Sarah Schuh, Sophie Gorman, and Payton Black!  Pride Predators came through to tie Beach FC and the KHA girls finished second in the group.

The team will now compete in Oklahoma July 21-26 for a National Championship.  Best of luck to the KHA Girls U16 Red!

It is always nice to hear good feedback from our opponents especially respected clubs within the area:
 
"I am a parent of one of the girls on a Kolping team, and I just wanted to tell you that I have never seen better coached group of girls of that age ever. I was very impressed with your team, and I think sometimes people should be congratulated on a job well done. My daughter was so lost during the game she didn’t know which way to look. She is usually the scorer of the team and she was flat out intimidated."
 
"I want to let you know how impressed I was with your team’s passing today. Your girls passed the ball all over the field and did an excellent job finding open space without the ball. I have never seen a team at this age level pass the ball back to the defense on a kick off and I was very impressed. I preach passing and moving without the ball to my girls and they saw first hand today how passing can really make a difference. Those girls have a bright future if they continue their superb passing."
