Welcome to Saturday Morning Soccer

U4 Mixed

**Please consider volunteering as your child’s coach for this season ** 

TIME:

SATURDAYS 10AM – 11AM

LOCATION:

Rockmosa Park, 74 Christie Street, Rockwood – Large Field closest to splash pad and concession.

WHEN:

The season starts the last Saturday in May and runs for approximately 12 weeks with a fun day on the last day.

PRACTISE/GAME:

Teams practise and play on the same day.

25 min – practice time/skills development – all players have a ball supplied for practise.  2K Soccer, a soccer development company run by former pro Aaron Kerr, along with Lauren Taylor have designed a training program  that will introduce them to basic soccer concepts – parents are always welcome to participate! Our coach volunteers participate in working with their teams.

5 min – break for water and get over to game field

25 min – game – in accordance with Long Term Player Development, U4 play 3v3 with no goal keeper-meaning more playing time, more ‘touches’ for each player with the ball during a game atmosphere.   We do not keep scores – the players are all encouraged to have fun and the only rules  enforced are which direction to run and reminders of “feet only”.

Each player will be placed on a team with two coach volunteers, depending on numbers.  Each week after the practice portion, they will participate in a game against another team from the same age group.

Medical Form

Each player needs a medical form on file in case of emergencies.

MEDICAL FORM

 

Photo Day

Each registered player will receive one free team and one free individual photo. Picture Day is in June and you will receive a schedule on the first day.  The schedule will also be posted on the website.  Please note there are no retake or alternate days.

Weather Policy

Our soccer program runs rain or shine. The only time soccer is cancelled is if there is lightening/thunderstorms. Please check the home page of the website for up to date cancellations and field closures. When faced with  heat alerts, our Coaches will have the players take more frequent breaks to ensure that they stay properly hydrated. Please always make sure your player has water at the fields. If you forget your water bottle, the concession is usually open.

Parental Supervision

This age group requires that a parent/guardian MUST be on-site (i.e. at the field) each week. Should you need to leave the area (i.e. take another child to the bathroom, run to your car etc) please ensure that you designate another parent (not one of your coaches) to keep an eye on your player. Our coaches’ responsibility is to ensure that each player has a great time at both the practice and game – they are not babysitters.
