U5 - U6 - U7 - U9 Program Information

Program Information and Structure

The Mini Program (U5-U9) follows the Canada Soccer Pathway to promote a love for the game at an early age.  In doing so, practices will consist of timed stations (roughly 6-10 minutes each) falling into the 4 categories for development:  Soccer technique, General Movement, Coordination, and Small-Sided Games.  
  • Soccer technique involves drills that teach dribbling, control, passing, and shooting.  This is where the kids develop basic skills they will use for the rest of their soccer careers.
  • General Movement involves drills designed to promote physical activity.  The kids will learn speed, agility, and balance while participating in very active tasks.
  • Coordination involves drills that combine different movements, and serve to promote better control of their bodies with and without a ball. 
  • Small-Sided Games are where the kids are able to apply some of the skills they learn in “real” game scenarios.  This can include scrimmages, or other variations of games with a ball.  
Throughout the season, there will also be a couple of tournament days where the kids play for the whole practice to promote fun and healthy competition (without keeping score).
