Technical skill development at a young age is one of the main objectives of the Little Metros Program. Our coaches will dedicate a significant amount of time during each training session teaching technical skill development. Our skills academies will provide organized, age specific coaching of movement patterns, ball handling, and technical skills twice a week focusing on footwork with and without the ball, speed, agility, ball handling, ball moves, receiving, passing, defending, and finishing. EMFC will always provide high quality lesson plans and trained staff coaches to implement those plans. Parent coaches will sometimes be used to assist staff coaches.

Water drops on dandelion seed heads. The first rain we have had for awhile came this morning.

I took this photo about 10 AM, but since it was in the shade of one of our trees, I decided to use the flash and it made it look more like I had taken it at night.

While plucking dead blossoms from my Petunia plant I noticed this unusual spider so decided to take a photo of it. After loaded the shot in my computer I saw that the design on it's back looked like some sort of 'space alien'. Interesting. Enjoy.
