U7-U8 BOYS PROGRAM
Our U7-U8 program builds on the skills and lessons taught throughout our U5 and U6 program.
Within our programs, we prioritize developing a love for the game and sports, not just soccer! Each age group builds on what they learned in the previous year, with the main purpose of our program being to build confidence and spark creativity in our players!
We focus on developing vital motor skills such as walking, throwing, running and jumping. These skills are essential so that the players can build upon their soccer skills once they grow and develop further. We also focus on teaching life skills one can learn from sports such as emotional intelligence, responsibility, healthy habits, honesty, caring and self-confidence. In addition to these essential motor and life skills, we put our main focus into initially developing soccer skills such as decision making, game intelligence including decision making, vision, anticipation, speed and basic technical moves. By teaching these essential skills we are building a foundation for our players to continually progress as both soccer players and people.
Each session is unique and fast paced, building on the previous week. We only play games that are fun, exciting and beneficial to the players because they can learn a lot by playing! Our approach includes no boring activities and no standing in a line because the game is the best teacher! Within these games, the children can learn and use all the vital skills being emphasized throughout the session!
