Home Practice Plan

Families,

We are very excited to be sharing the Napa United home practice program. This program is targeted at all of our playing levels, ages, and genders. We truly hope you find it beneficial during this period of no official practices or games. 

The program has been split into different sections with all access being online in several different formats. 

Please view the attached PDF document that details everything you need to know about our Home Practice Program.

Skill & Drill Ideas
Our senior coaching team have developed a video library of drills using our academy players. They all have a title that is related to a skill category so you can watch them & then visit the field for a practice. We have tried to keep them simple with only minimal equipment needed.

You will also see some Skill Challenges that we would like our players to try & complete. These are fun-based & we will be having some competitions over the course of the next few weeks. Take video clips of your player trying out the challenges! 

All clips & challenges can be found on our YouTube channel:

Match Analysis  
Watching games is also a great way to improve your game intelligence. We have created a google form that has four challenges for our players to complete. You will need to watch at least one half of any game in order to answer the questions.

Please follow this link to complete the questions: Match Analysis Task 

The most comprehensive answers to all four sections will win a prize. 

Conditioning
It is vital our players try to stay as active & healthy as possible. We do not know when we will be back on the field but when it does happen, we want everyone to be as sharp & fit as possible. Our senior coaching team have created three high-intensity workouts for our players to complete. These workouts can also be found on our YouTube channel.

These workouts are aimed at our 11v11 players. If you are playing 7v7 or 9v9 soccer, please feel free to use the workout videos. You should consider completing fewer repetitions of the exercises & also increase the rest period.

Player Video Clips 
 We would love to see videos of our players competing the challenges & drills. Please email any clips you take to gavin@napaunited.org 

If you are happy for us to share this via our social media, please give your permission on the email so we can post. 

Equipment 
If you require balls and / or cones during this period please feel free to reach out to me via email so we can loan you some gear.

Dear Members:
ALL PRACTICE CANCELLED FROM MARCH 16 – APRIL 12, 2020

As many of you know, Napa Valley Unified School District (NVUSD), has cancelled school and closed all fields effective immediately through April 12, 2020. As Napa United utilizes NVUSD fields and for the protection and safety of our members and the community at large we are cancelling practices from Monday March 16, 2020 throughSunday April 12, 2020.

SPRING SEASON:
Napa United and the respective governing soccer organizations, CalNorth and NorCal, have not canceled the Spring season. Rather, the season is suspended and we are are hopeful that we can resume the season in April and reschedule all competitions later into the Spring/Summer.

INDEPENDENT TRAINING & HOME PRACTICE:
Our expert Senior Coaching Staff is in the process of designing Online Classes/Drills/Workouts to provide to players during this time off. These online videos will be accessible via our website and other forms of social media and messaging. We will
provide more information in the near future as the videos become accessible.

PAYMENTS AND FEES:
At present, everyone’s safety is our main priority. Any decision on refunds, reductions or credits will be decided upon once we know the final outcome for Spring seasonNapa United requests that all payments are continued at this time as we fully intend &
plan to complete all scheduled games once we can return to activity.

CLOSING:
We are sorry to have taken this step, but it is necessary under the circumstances. We are a Napa United soccer family and will get through these unprecedented times together. On behalf of the entire Napa United Board of Directors and Coaching Staff:
“Stay safe and healthy and we can't wait to see you on the field soon!”

Sincerely,
