Welcome to Saturday Morning Soccer

U6G

**Please consider volunteering as your child’s coach for this season ** 

TIME:

SATURDAYS 10am to 1100am

LOCATION:

Rockmosa Park, 110 Rockmosa Drive, Rockwood – Large Field closest to splash pad

WHEN:

The season starts the last Saturday in May and runs until mid August. There are no sessions on the July and August long weekends.

PRACTICE/GAME:

Teams practice and play on the same day.

Practice time/skills development – all players have a ball supplied for practice.   Former pro Aaron Kerr,  has designed a training program  that will introduce them to basic soccer concepts – parents are welcome to participate!Erick Olazabal LTPD Coordinator leads the practice with coach volunteers participating in working with their teams. Following the practice time, there is a water break and coaches lead their teams over to the game fields, where players will participate in a game against another team from the same age group.

In accordance with Long Term Player Development U6 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”.

Uniforms

Registration includes a full soccer uniform – team jersey, shorts and socks . Uniforms  will be handed out on the first day when players will meet their coaches and participate in an abbreviated program.

Equipment

Shin guards are mandatory equipment for your player. Please ensure that you have them with you each week – as your player will not be allowed to participate if they do not have them. Players must wear running shoes or soccer cleats.

Jewelry

For safety,  all jewelry, with the exception of medical alert bracelets and necklaces, must be removed prior to soccer, including piercings. Activity Trackers or ‘Fit Bits’ may not be worn.
