U7 Move & Play (Years of birth: 2014 and 2015)

Love of sport begins with the ability to master the basic movements necessary to be physically active. Our Move & Play Jr program aims to help young children with the development of body management and movement skills. The more physically literate they are the more successful they will be in the future sports they choose to play. Designed for separate genders, this program uses a play-based format to skills development that kids will definitely enjoy. This is a general activity and not a soccer-specific program that focuses on movement education with a soccer-related slant in order to help get our youngest participants off to a good athletic start.

U9 Move & Play (Years of birth: 2013 and 2012)

In our Move & Play program players will work on developing their physical literacy alongside their basic soccer skills.

The program, which will be separate genders, will use both a play-based and game-based approach to skill development.

Day: Sundays, September 5, 12, 19, 26, October 3 and 10

Time: 2:30 to 3:25 pm for females; 3:30 to 4:25 pm for males

Small-sided games will be used as the teaching tool in this separate genders program. Each session will start with a one-on-one segment. The group will then move to a two-on-two segment. Each session will end with a segment of three-on-three. The basic decisions introduced in the one versus one will be built upon through the two versus two and three versus three segments.
