U4 In Depth

We understand that for some children this will be their first experience in an organized sport, so we want to make it an easy transition from the sidelines to the field. When you arrive at the field for your scheduled U4 time slot, or ‘game’, the children will start with some fun activities and drills run by Mark Ruest that will get them comfortable moving the ball around and getting to know their teammates. The players participate and practice with a parent or guardian and the groups are overseen by a Group Leader, with Mark Ruest guiding and assisting. A parent or guardian must participate with the child.

Each week your child will want to bring a size 3 soccer ball, a water bottle, and a snack. Cleats and shin guards are encouraged, but not required. Your child will receive a shirt and socks as their uniform.
