Outdoor Mini Soccer Program

Outdoor Mini Soccer

U4 & U5 Community Soccer Program

Teams play once a week from the end of April through the end of June. (Weather Permitting)

The development of any athlete starts with physical literacy and their ability to run, skip and jump. So, the first 30 minutes of each game consist of skills and drills, including, Physical Literacy – The ABCs of movement (Agility, Balance and Coordination). These are key components to focus on, and help teach utilizing the ball. Parents are encouraged to participate with their child during skills and drills.

Volunteer coaches are provided training by EMSAwest, free of charge, for this age group. They will be shown age-appropriate drills and skills, often done through gameplay with the ball.

A 30-minute game is then played, with two 15-minute halves. Field dimensions are reduced and rules of the game are limited to enable the players to continue to focus their attention on developing movement patterns, rather than game and tactics.

Registration is done through a central system, www.emsasoccerportal.com, your child will be placed in your home community unless they do not run a program then will be placed in the closest community running a program.
