U6 Timbit Boys


The SPDSA would like to thank the following companies for sponsoring U4, U5 and U6


For Who?
  • U5 - Players Born January 1, 2013 v Dec 31, 2013
  • U6 - Players Born January 1, 2012 v Dec 31, 2012
  • Gender Specific play unless not enough players register, then genders will be mixed. All players must be registered in their respective age group, based on their birth dates.
Philosophy - "Me and My Ball"

To give players the opportunity to develop basic movement and ball mastery skills in a FUN setting, built around informal play and positive reinforcement.

At this 1st stage of development the emphasis is on

  1. Physical Literacy - Building players body control and developing the ABCs (agility, balance, coordination & speed)
  2. Ball Mastery - players develop an understanding on how to manipulate the ball. The ball is their friend!
  3. FUN ACTIVITIES - Foster a love for the game.

Children at this age love to use their imagination when they play so games are designed with this in mind. There should aim to be no activities where players wait in lines to perform a pre-determined movement or required action.


Parent/Volunteer Coaches will be appointed for the season and will run the activities each week, with assistance from the SPDSA Technical Department.  Head coaches will receive a $100 credit towards their child's registration, upon submission of required team information and a valid Criminal Record Check to the SPDSA by the specified deadline, and once team equipment has been returned at the end of the season.  Only one head coach per team is eligible for the credit.

The best qualities of a coach for this age player are,

  • Patience.
  • Good Humor.
  • A willingness to see the world through a child’s eyes and speak their language.

Only registered team officials and players are allow'd on the field, benching area, change rooms or in the hallways. Parents not volunteering, will be able to enjoy the games from the stands only.

Planting the seed of passion for soccer is the most important goal in this age group. All players must be active during activities and equal amounts of playing time given during fun games and 3 v 3 games.

Technical Led Program

All sessions will be overseen by a Master Coach from the SPDSA Technical Department and technical assistants. Age and stage appropriate session plans will be provided electronically throughout the season to all coaches

Program Structure

The Program is adapted from the Canada Soccer and FIFA Preferred Training Model. In this approach each training session is built around encompassing the four areas shown below

  • Fundamental Movement/Coordination,
  • Soccer Technique,
  • 1v1-2v1 games, and
  • Small Sided Games.

Each session will be 55 minutes in length, split as shown below

  1. Warm up activity focusing on fundamental movement/coordination (8-10 minutes)
  2. 2 stations focusing on technique and 1v1-2v1 activities (10 minutes each)
  3. 3v3 games against another team (20-25 minutes)
Field Set up

As shown below, 1 pitch at Millennium Place will be divided into 4 areas of 18 x 30 yards. Teams will warm up in their area and go through their 1st station, then teams 1 and 2 (and 3 and 4) will rotate position to go through the 2nd station. They then all end with 3v3 games against the other team.
