Development U4, U5, U6, U7

Spring & Summer 2023

The focus of this program is physical literacy and how it relates to the game!

These age groups; U4, U5, U6, U7. Age group is determined by year of birth. U4-U7 participants practice twice per week. U4 & U5 participants have one 45min practice per week and U6 & U7 participants have one 60min practice per week. All groups are run with 1 coach to 5 participants. The goal of this program is first and foremost FUN!  Players will be involved in activities that help develop physical literacy as well as soccer skills.  At the younger ages, it is imperative that the players feel comfortable with a soccer ball in the soccer environment,  and develop strong balance and agility.  Soccer is merely the medium in which these skills are introduced.

Occasionally and for a limited amount of time, the focus will be on a mini-game environment.  The goal is not to develop positions or the competitiveness of the game setting.  It is to enjoy the basic game itself.

Players begin to gain familiarity with the sport and learn basic ball-handling and passing skills by U7. There is no official league play with a set game schedule or standings.  Again, the key to this age group is FUN and physical literacy.
