U7-U8 FUNDAMENTALS - INDOOR 2017-2018 PROGRAM OUTLINE

For Who?

Philosophy - "Me and My Friend"

To give players the opportunity to develop their movement ABC's and learn the basics of the game while emphasizing FUN, cooperation, and maximum time on the ball.

To develop player’s individual relationship with the ball, to want it, how to find it, deal with it, feel comfortable with it, keep it close. We will encourage all players to dribble and “stay on the ball” during activities and play.

The main focus is individual development, ball mastery and physical literacy, whilst beginning to learn to cooperate with a teammate

Coaching

Volunteer coaches are appointed for the season, and are supported on a regular basis by 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.

In-service coaching workshops will be held before and during the season.

The best qualities for a coach of this age player are

  1. Patience
  2. Good humor.
  3. Clearly understand the capabilities and limitations of this age and appreciate the power of learning by watching.
  4. Ability to demonstrate basic ball mastery skills.

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 activities and games

Only registered team officials and players are allowed 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.
