Spring/Summer Future Stars program…
U5 – U8 FUTURE STARS PROGRAM (for those born between 2012 and 2015)
Our Future Stars program is designed for children who wish to take their soccer experience to the next level and improve their soccer skills & technique . It is a stepping stone to prepare players to transition from recreational house league soccer to development soccer at U9 which will lead them to competitive soccer at U13.
The main focus when teaching soccer to children aged 4-8 is to make soccer FUN. A firm foundation will give your child the skills necessary to improve, be successful and fall in love with the beautiful game! FUNdamentals are the foundation to everything. No matter what sport you play FUNdamentals are the building blocks to improving performance.
At MLCFC we teach the FUNdamentals of soccer in a FUN way that children can understand. During the practice players will spend an allotted time at stations having FUN, developing specific skills and qualities before moving on to the next station. Learning ABCs of movement: Agility, Balance, Coordination and speed. By using station work we create an environment where players can work at
their own rate to learn proper movement and technique allowing them to feel success and build their
Stations focus on soccer coordination with the ball, soccer technique and small sided soccer games 3v3, 4v4 and 5v5. All sessions take a holistic approach to developing our youth. Each game and activity will focus on the 4 main areas of the child’s development; these include social/emotional, physical, physiological and also technical.
This 9 week program (June 1st – July 27th) runs on Mondays at Crestwood Secondary School in Peterborough from 6-7pm.
To help reduce our club’s carbon footprint we have opted to eliminate the inclusion of a ball and training jersey. This reduction has allowed us to lower our registration fee to $100. Coaches will provide soccer balls for each of the sessions.
Notice for U5/U6 players — If you wish to participate in the Future Stars program, please do not register for Fleming College field as those games are on Mondays.
