CORE curriculum is comprised of these main programs:
Focuses on the fundamental technical and tactical elements of soccer while playing under pressure. Through implementation of CORE’s Soccer Training System players learn to create opportunity and minimize mistakes. Exposure to the relationship between these two programs infuses ICE within the athlete; Insight, Composure, and Execution. This understanding exemplifies what CORE Soccer Training is all about.
Our established CORE Soccer Training System utilizes five stages of player development. The Goalkeeper stages are Footwork/Balance, Ball Handling/Boxing, Diving/Break-Aways, Shot Stopping/Crosses, and Angles/Distribution. The Field Player stages are Ball Mastery/Dribbling, Passing/Receiving, Attacking/Defending, Striking/Finishing, and Group/Game Play. These building blocks increase body awareness, self-efficacy, technical proficiency, and tactical understanding of all positions thus improving the overall success of the player. Only through quality repetition and commitment can a player attain their full potential; this requires players to “become comfortable being uncomfortable”. All participants are expected to step outside their comfort zone in an effort to elevate their level of play.
CORE continually strives to develop new methods to enhance our “Quality over Quantity” philosophy and keeping with that goal we are proud to introduce the CORE Soccer Trainer as a part of our CORE Soccer Training System. When implemented as a part of a player’s regimen this tool creates a new level of quality across all aspects of training.
better players for their own Club Teams. More importantly it has given these players more confidence, not only in themselves, but in their teammates as well. We have a great philosophy on how to play the 3 v 3 game and it shows in our results. We have been approached by many teams about expanding and as such we are opening up the Average Joe’s and Jane’s group to any team who has the same GOAL as us: “To Win the World Championships at Disney!” We would like to invite teams who have established Coaches, rather than individual players, to join in our quest of becoming a dominate force on the 3 v 3 World Stage. We feel a group that has played together should stay together and the coach is the main ingredient in the mixture. Average Joe’s and Jane’s coordinators will assist in many ways, but each team that joins will be responsible to operate their own team. If you or your team are interested in becoming part of the Average Joe’s and Jane’s family feel free to contact us for more detailed information.
The Joe's and Jane's hold several tournaments throughout the year including two Kick It 3v3 qualifiers.
For the past seven years we have taken many teams to Disney for the World Championships and we have eleven current teams who play under our banner. Four of these teams went to Disney in January 2012 to participate in the World Championships. We are very proud of all our teams for their accomplishments.

One of the most frustrating things for players, coaches, and parents during training is chasing the ball due to poor touches, miss-hit balls, and shooting. This not only decreases players’ enjoyment and overall practice time, but also limits the amount of time players have the ball at their feet in a given session. The CORE Soccer Trainer allows us to focus on the quality of everything the player does without diminishing fun or breaking their concentration so they can retrieve the ball.
By using this product CORE can decrease wasted training time and increase quality touches for each individual in a given session. Players, coaches, and parents can easily utilize this tool in pre-game warm-ups, practice, backyards, and anywhere else they can think of. In addition the cord can be detached and used just like any other ball. The CORE Soccer Trainer can be purchased alone or as a training package where CORE’s professional staff will teach each participant how to maximize everything it has to offer.
The CORE Soccer Trainer is coming soon, are you ready?
