Jamboree One With One is the combination of two different formats that, put together, provides the best possible introduction to soccer for our youngest players. In AYSO soccer, a jamboree means that groups are formed on a weekly basis depending on how many players attend a given session. One With One refers to the concept that each player will have a parent (or other adult) working with them on the field.
A "Master Coach" will lead each session. The Master Coach will introduce a game/activity that will apply to a certain skill or part of the game. They will explain and demonstrate to help parents and players understand the activity. Each pair (player/parent) will then attempt the activity while the Master Coach circulates between pairs providing specific help or suggestions so that the activities are performed as intended. After a suitable amount of time, the Master Coach will bring the players and parents back together as a group and recap what they have done, introducing the next game/activity.
If the activity is a group activity, each parent will be given the opportunity to play the activity (game) with the group (team).
Each Jamboree session will end with a 20 minute short-sided game (3v3). The two objectives of the program are to allow players to enjoy the activities, and let the game be the teacher.
