U5, U6, U8 Coach orientation and training on Saturday

On Saturday, March 15th, we will hold the coaches' orientation and training for U5, U6, and U8 coaches at the Industrial Park fields. We will take the morning to discuss practical matters about coaching, then break into groups for training. If you're a returning coach, you may skip the training sessions, but we encourage you to stay and share your expertise with the new coaches! Note: Non-coaching parents are NOT required to attend, but you are invited to learn about training and coaching issues.

U8 coaches: please bring your player, if possible, to participate in the live game demos. We will run through a mini-game with your players on the U5/6 fields to demonstrate game rules, then move to the U8 field to explain the differences in the game for the older age group. Make sure your player has shin guards and water.

The training will cover several aspects.
  • The capabilities and needs of your age group
  • The fundamentals that ALL ages should begin with
  • Age-appropriate drills and games
  • Live game demo, demonstrating game rules
