Along with their U8/U9 counterparts, the U6-U7 players seen here with their coaches continue to develop a love of the “beautiful game”. The U6-U9 Development Program is designed for young players aspiring to become smart athletes AND skilled soccer players. Players learn the “fundamentals” of soccer through a unique weaving of ball skills with the A-B-Cs (Agility, Balance and Coordination). “It is our mission to nurture and create well rounded “Soccer Athletes” in an environment of fun and play”, says program director Leanne. The fun continues twice weekly on Mondays and Wednesdays at Eastgate Park until August 9.
