Friday Night Lights

Friday Night Lights is a weekly event that will take place during BESA's soccer season. It's a great time for players to get extra touches or get some exposure to soccer outside of team practice.

Each week, the sessions will alternate focusing on skills and open play (2018-2019 will continue with skills each week).

Location: Bob Eden Park, Euless (near intersection of Mid-Cities Blvd and Hwy 157)

Times:

  • 2016-2019: 5:45-6:45pm (2019 will end at 6:30pm)
  • 2015-older: 7:00-8:00pm

Skills

Skills sessions are a great opportunity for players to get extra touches on the ball outside of team practice. Coaches work in small groups based on birth year to help players learn fundamental skills of soccer as well as advanced skills for those eager to keep learning.

Skills will be held weekly for our 2018-2019 players. For all players older than that, we will alternate skills sessions every other week opposite of Open Play.

You must register each week you'd like to participate. Cost is $5/player and registration closes at 10am each Friday. Any late registrations or walk-ups will be $10.

Open Play

Open Play is an opportunity for all players to compete with others in a fun, stress-free environment. Players have the ability to take what they have learned from the skills sessions and use them in small-sided games. Throughout Open Play, players are encouraged to broaden their knowledge of the game by either working with teammates in games or using certain moves or touches in challenging 1v1 situations.

The structure at Open Play is different every week. Yet, sessions are built for the players to see success as they develop as an individual.

Small-sided games give players chances to understand the game better such as how to set up defenders with their touches, when and where to play the ball, certain movements off the ball to create angles or passing lanes for their teammates, and working with partners or teammates.

Register Online Weekly

Register each week your player will attend a Friday Night Lights session. The link is always the same and will close at 10am every Friday. Any late registrations or walk-ups that come in after that time will be $10.
