What ?

These age groups; U4 (born in 2016), U5 (born in 2015), U6 (born in 2014) & U7 (born in 2013)) meet once per week. 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.

Typically, players 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.
