New Fall/Winter Future Stars program…
U5 – U8 FUTURE STARS PROGRAM (for those born between 2012 and 2015)
Based on the success of our summer Future Stars program, we are thrilled to be bringing it indoors for the fall & winter months.
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.
