Information about the U6 Program:

Training consists of a variety of age appropriate topics with an emphasis on individual technique and skill to develop a foundation and comfort level on the ball. Following each training session, athletes will take part in small sided game which focuses on the skills taught during the training session. Competition is more than scoring. Demonstrating the skills becomes the focus of the games, which in turn allows players to learn and play in a fun environment.

Weekend Game Outline
•Teams consist of 4-7 players with the Trainer acting as the coach for both teams
•Weekend games will focus on weekly training lessons
•There will be no offside, throw-ins or corner kicks
•No goalie's or referee's
•The Trainer will be on the field during the game to control movement
•Handballs are only called if athletes intended to play ball
•Substitutions will be made so all players see equal playing time.
•A Size 3 ball will be used for games

Scoring is part of the game but more important is the use of the skills taught, during the week. Athletes should be encouraged to demonstrate the weekly training skill before scoring.

Equipment Needed- Each player must wear shin-guards and bring a number 3 soccer ball. Please come prepared with plenty of water for proper hydration.

Winter 2019:

Dates: First week of December- last weekend in March

Location: Goooal Sports, 1791 Stratford Ave in Stratford

About the program: All teams will work with professional trainers once for practice on Monday nights from 5-6pm and games will be played at 9am on Saturdays. The trainers will follow a season long curriculum that will focus on teaching the skills our young players need to develop a sound soccer foundation. The weeknight session will focus on teaching the skill of the week and the weekend session will be a quick refresher of the week night lessons followed by 4v4 games where players will be encouraged to use the new skill. Growing on what is learned in Little Kicks these extra session and attention to player development will provide an excellent transition to our U8 program.
