Through small-sided games and one on one coaching, our Micro Soccer program provides children as young as 3 years old with the opportunity to have fun as they play and learn the game of soccer. The children that are 4 and 5 years old will play in the U6 division and children that are 6, 7 and some 8 year olds will play in our U8 division.
Age groups are structured in two age groups.
· “Mighty Micro’s” consist of U4, U5 and U6 participants.
· “Super Micro’s” cover the U7 and U8 ages.
Children in our Micro programs will obtain an understanding of the skills sets needed to play the game of soccer and start to develop those skills that are developmentally appropriate for each individual player on with and with-out the ball.
The U4 and U6 players will start to focus on the basic fundamentals 1/ Moving with the ball, 2/ Sharing the ball, 3/ Getting the ball 4/ Finding space with the ball and 5/ Protecting the ball. We do also introduce pressure to the decision making process in the form of an opponent or a smaller area to play in.
Training for Mighty Micros – Wed from 5:45-6:30
Game night for Mighty Micros – Friday from 6-7
The U7 and U8 players will train on a Wednesday early evening and then play games on a Friday night in a 4 v 4 format with no goal keepers (as per the mandate from US Soccer and US Youth Soccer). Players training will be focused on continued mastery of the basic fundamentals but with a more enhanced focus to encompass 1/ dribbling with the ball, 2/ passing the ball, 3/ Receiving the ball 4/ Player movement off the ball and 5/ Shielding the ball.
Training for Super Micros – Wed from 6:30-7:15
