Attached in the links below are guidelines for age appropriate training philosifies and specific drills. Please use these to assist in your own coaching development for our kids.
Field Sizes, Numbers of Players, Soccer Balls & Goals
We will be adjusting our field sizes and numbers of players playing as follows:
U6 - 4v4 on grids next to the pavilion with no goal keepers using size 3 soccer ball
U8 - 4v4 on grids with no goal keepers using a size 3 soccer ball
U10 - 7v7 including goalkeepers- using a size 4 soccer ball.
U12 - 9v9 including goalkeepers- using a size 4 ball
U15 & High School Coed - 11v11 on full size FIFA regulation fields using a size 5 soccer ball and 8x24 Kwik Goal goals
As previously mentioned, we will be providing coaches a curriculum to use for the season. This will keep practices structured and FUN, with age appropriate activities. We will also be offering training sessions, put on by professional trainers, to provide additional ideas and instruction on how to conduct a session, how to adapt to different numbers and what things to focus on and look for. Lastly, all coaches will attend a meeting specifically focused on the age group they will be coaching to answer any questions and provide more information about the clubs philosophy & goals.
We are excited to get this season started and see all those smiling faces out on the pitch!
