Rockford Progression System

We have developed a system by age group to be able to measure progress of our players that also doubles as a curriculum for our coaches by age group. By the end of each year there are certain skill sets that each player are expected to achieve. We'll be able to track these skills, give players progress reports and tangible things they can work on to achieve these skills. We'll be doing check ups during the year so players can see where they stand and to track progress. We want to emphasize that achieving these skills won't solely be achieved by attending practice. Outside work will  be highly encouraged.
