What differentiates Gotham's youth program?

Gotham Soccer is a community of players that love soccer. We’re different from what currently exists in the United States in so much as soccer used to be hard and many organizations were built in that environment. By that I mean 20-30 years ago the number of players wasn’t very large, and clubs formed with travel teams to find the necessary competition. Today, that’s changed. A lot of people play soccer, Gotham’s existence as a successful adult league around the country is evidence of that, with local, convenient weekly games providing an outlet for playing. Our aim with our youth push is to facilitate an easy, fun soccer experience for younger players as well.

The focus of Gotham is different than that of the organizations that grew up during this earlier time in the US, that is the USSF and associated clubs. For most ‘clubs’ it’s about tryouts, tournaments, regional/national competitions, and a lot of pressure for kids to excel, get college scholarships, potentially even go pro. The philosophy here is about the joy of lacing up your boots, stepping onto a pitch, and knocking a ball about, while developing the skills necessary to make this a fun thing to do. Our adult leagues provide us with a unique network of people that want to pass on their love of the game, which is different from more recreational offerings like the YMCA that often don’t have coaches that really know soccer.

And getting down to an even finer level of difference is that we want to develop each player in a different way. To date Americans have been very focused on the “right way” to play the game, that is full field 11v11 games. And we love 11v11, Gotham’s first offerings were full field, 90min, 11v11 games in NYC. But 11v11 spreads the game out, and with only one ball for 22 players, each player gets less of an opportunity to touch the ball. We feel small sided games on smaller fields with fewer players is the way to develop skill and talent. We want children to have the ball at the feet as much as possible. In our skills and drills sessions we de-emphasize endurance training and emphasize fundamental skills training. Kids will run because they are kids, and there’s CrossFit and track if fitness is desired. We’re here to pass along our knowledge and love of the game to a new generation.
