U3 RISE & SHINE ACADEMY: OUTDOOR 2023
For players born in 2020 & 2021.
Philosophy: "Learn to Move!"
The SPDSA Rise & Shine Soccer Academy is designed to get young children involved in sport with a bit of a soccer focus! The main goal of the program is to develop fundamental movement patterns to develop physical literacy using age-appropriate and imaginative coaching techniques and to teach players the importance of following instructions and being active.
One weekly session will be led by a Technical Coach from the SPDSA Technical Department. Parent/Volunteer Activity Leaders may be appointed for the season to help/receive mentorship for future coaching. Activity Leaders will need to submit a valid Criminal Record Check (current within three years).
The best qualities of an activity leader for this age player are:
Children will participate in stimulating activities that introduce them to fundamental movement and physical literacy (running, jumping, hopping, bending, catching) as well as basic soccer skills (dribbling, running) through a variety of fun games, activities, and obstacles. Parent participation is a requirement.
Season Length: Seven (7) weeks starting May 6, 2023, and ending June 24, 2023 (dates may be subject to change).
Each session will be 45 minutes: four (4) activities of 10 minutes each.
Day of Play: Saturday mornings at 9:00 am in Sherwood Park. (Field location to be determined.)
