Active Start Program
Ages 4-5 year
This program focuses on teaching the fundamental aspects of sporting participation, encouraging each of our young players to master the basic techniques of soccer alongside the development of physical and movement literacy (agility, balance, and coordination). In introducing children to the basic technical dimensions of the game, our program is designed to allow participants to explore with the ball, to engage with the core skills of dribbling, passing, and shooting in a competition free environment. Tailor-made for junior players with a fun and friendly atmosphere, soccer-enthused kids will be encouraged to explore and expand their love affair with the game.
FUNdamentals / Learn to Train program
Ages: 6-10 years (child must be 6 years old to attend full-day camp)
The group will be broken into two groups: 6 & 7 year olds, and 8-10 year olds.
This program strives to guide the technical development of young players as they acquire a greater level of understanding of soccer and familiarity with the ball. In this group we break the group into two age brackets of 6 - 7 year olds, and 8 - 10 year olds. In nurturing the child’s initial engagement with the game, our coaches deliver a program which emphasizes consistent child attachment to the ball, incorporating a high level of technique refinement as opposed to tactical or team play. The inclusion of structured small-sided games (4v4 up to 7v7) allows young players to begin the process of transferring skills into game scenarios.
Learn to Train / Soccer for Life
Ages: 11-14 year olds
As young players reach a level of technical competence and maturity, our program now seeks to combine technical and tactical instruction so as to maximize the translation of individual abilities and skills into game scenarios. While the curriculum at this stage remains premised on facilitating the overall mastery of core skills such as passing, dribbling, and shooting, it is complemented with a greater focus on defensive and attacking principles, game and positional awareness, as well as emphasizing the importance of combination and support play.
