The season starts the last Saturday in May and runs until mid-August. There are no sessions on the July and August long weekend.
Teams practise and play on the same day.
Practice time/skills development – all players have a ball supplied for practice. RFC Technical Director, former pro Aaron ‘AZZA’ Kerr, has designed a training program that will introduce them to basic soccer and physical literacy concepts – parents are always welcome to participate! Session are led by LTPD Coordinator Erick Olazabal, and certified, trained youth coaches. Our coach volunteers participate in working with their teams.
Long Term Player Development, U4 play 3v3 with no goal keeper-meaning more playing time, more ‘touches’ for each player with the ball during a game atmosphere. We do not keep scores – the players are all encouraged to have fun and the only rules enforced are which direction to run and reminders of “feet only”.
Each player will be placed on a team with two coach volunteers, depending on numbers. Each week after the practice portion, they will participate in a game against another team from the same age group.
