Jamboree One With One

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.
