Registration in the U6-U7 development program for children who were born in 2013 or 2014 remains open at this time. There are no tryouts or prerequisites since everyone at this age can benefit from the program. You can register directly on PowerUp (select “Development program for boys and girls born in 2013-2014”) or you can contact coach Leanne McLaughlin if you would like more information about the program.
About the Program
The PCSA U6-U7 Development Program is designed for young players at the FUNdamental stage of Long Term Player Development. The program teaches a broad range of soccer techniques, soccer coordination and general movement skills through a variety of fun activities and small-sided games in a safe, stimulating and engaging environment. We recognize that agility, balance and coordination (the ABC’s) are essential foundation skills that all good soccer players (and all athletes) have in common.
The program runs from mid-May until the end of July. There are two fun and stimulating skill and games sessions per week on Mondays and Wednesdays at Eastgate Park.
The program takes a holistic approach to developing our youth. Each game and activity will focus on 4 main areas of the child’s development; these include physical, technical, social/emotional and physiological.
It is the goal of the PCSA Development Program to accept every player with the desire and the commitment, subject to maintaining an appropriate coach to player ratio. The number of players that can be accepted into the program is only limited by the number of available coaches.
