ORYA Approach to Soccer

The ORYA Soccer Program is a very progressive, inclusionary model designed to enhance skill acquisition and help children develop a LOVE of the game, while promoting long-term, healthy life-style habits in an enjoyable and age appropriate environment. It is our obligation to provide a well-rounded educational environment, designed to develop both the body and mind.

We place tremendous emphasis on basic skill acquisition and individual comfort with the ball. These technical skills are the building blocks every player needs in order to have long term success and enjoyment in soccer. Our recreation level Academy programs are an ideal place for children to develop the FUNdamentals of soccer and a love for playing.

Winter Soccer & Futsal

Work with ORYA coaches during the winter months in a relaxed environment.  ORYA hopes this provides players the opportunity to get some touches on the ball & play in a futsal based environment while making their full commitments to other, winter sports.  Coaches will quickly touch on some skill development before getting into scrimmage based play for the majority of each session.  Keep up with your skills while you experience other sports!

Winter Indoor Futsal (Soccer):

Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided soccer game that is used to help develop well rounded players. Futsal encourages young players to become more agile, faster, stronger and have better balance. It also helps players become more comfortable with the ball and gives them lots of opportunities to practice passing, dribbling, turning, shooting and ball control while under pressure.
