One other note to wrongsided--it is all about the $ to the people offering the services (I have an 04 btw) so just a caution on that.  Personally, if a coach or someone is telling you that your 05 DD NEEDS to work on being faster or running harder to catch up to her teammates or something like that, then I'd tell them to take a hike and take your DD to some soccer skill work instead or a coach that emphasizes that.   Not that I have a lot of experience but what I've seen in our short years of Academy is that sometimes the coaches and parents have the kids work on things that really are only an advantage to getting wins for the team (being faster, kicking longer & harder, for example) and not what will make our kids better soccer players individually down the road.

Edited: oops, I note you have an older player so you know all this already, LOL!

"You might use some resistance bands to strengthen the adductor and abductor muscles to prevent injuries to the knees." Thanks, Z, we are just now exploring this because as the girls get older and closer to puberty (yikes!) like mine I understand that this is when the muscles have more laxity issues (is that the right word?) and it is when you get more injuries.

Agree, no resistence needed, quick feet, preferable with a ball, and agility patterns.

Just another way to make money in Texas. I've seen it with my 96 on down. The players will show up with or with out SAQ training. I've seen girls that have done everything that their parents put them through and not even get a look at a D1 school. Let them have a life, if they are good enough they will be found!

My dd was about 9 when she started at crull. We're talking about 6,7 year olds?

If I had it do over again I would've stayed away from any specialized saq outside of what the team did at practices until she went select. Would've worked harder to let her enjoy the other sports instead, and made sure any agility training imvolved a ball.

From what I can see the multi sport kids have the most fluid movement patterns when they get older, and are the most comfortable tracking aerial balls. They may not all be the most skilled, but if/when they focus on soccer they close the skills gap very quickly.

I'm going to give both track and soccer a go. I guess time will tell if they are compatible.

Mine is 8, and the choice is hers not mine. Her choice with her free time beyond soccer is Church, girls scouts, and wrecking the house with her little brother. I own gear for every sport on the list in their sizes. The day they ask is the day they get to try it. I have to ask her, she says no...

Her brother another Kicks kid, very different, has asked to try football. guess where he will be this spring...

Maybe we got lucky with the trainer she has, but he is teaching her about how to improve herself overall and to prevent injury, to include proper hydration, stretching, etc...

Well its really not about the Mullah and by no means are we rich but we scrape our pennies to make our daughters better.  I guess you can say we are blessed to have our older one graduating this year from Clemson so now our Lil one will benefit from the extra pennies underneath the couch.  Thanks to everyone for their insight, we are going to do the free session at MJP and see how it goes and what they try to sell us.

That's what we figured! It's not always about the money!

by all means, do some - but be careful not to overtrain on a young, growing body or you will have problems later.
My BB played top level soccer from U-9 on, and had a coach (U-11 to U-14) that did a lot of speed and agility training - too much. I held my BB out of some sessions due to Osgood-Schlatter fears, and fortunately I was right. He would get benched time and again for not attending some of the "fitness" practices, but he more than made up in playing time when all of the other boys on his team were sidelined with OSD...
