Quarantine has been difficult on many, including on young athletes who rely on team sports as a vital source for social interaction. Since shelter in place orders have been enacted, physical activity amongst kids has plummeted, while anxiety and depression have increased.
A USP mini-pitch can be a truly life-changing experience for individuals and a game changer for organizations. Not only do our fields enable small group gatherings, but they are also incredibly engaging for all ages and skill levels. The fast-paced format provides more touches, more goals, and more dynamic play, making the experience both more enjoyable and an excellent teacher of the game.
USP’s 5v5 fields are also renowned for efficiently developing technical and tactical ability, giving players essential skills like quick decision-making, creativity out of small spaces, and intelligent movement off the ball.
As more and more kids return to play, one of the chief concerns for coaches aside from safety measures is injury prevention. Coaches will no doubt want to manage workload for athletes returning to the pitch after months off, and USP’s mini-pitches are versatile spaces that allow individuals to stay fit while away from the team, and enable clubs to quickly and safely get their athletes up to speed.
