Our under 8 to under 13 age groups falls under our foundation phase in our player development model. Our club and recreational programs have one training session per week and a game on the weekend. The focus within the club program is to ensure our players have fun in a safe environment. We focus on the holistic development of our players through the 4 corners of development which are Technical, Tactical, Psychological/Psychosocial and Physical. On the technical front we are looking at dribbling skills, 1v1 attacking and defending, passing and receiving, striking the ball, and 1v1 skills/moves, defending 1v1 and in small groups. In terms of tactical we want our players to play out from the back and all of our teams should strive to play with the same philosophy.
Players are placed on teams with volunteer coaches which are overseen by Staff Coaches.
Player are required to have shin pads and cleats for all training sessions and games.
