For this program, kids are divided into 5 groups depending on their age: the under 4 (U4), the under 6 (U6), the under 8 (U8), the under 10 (U10) and the under 12 (U12). In each group age, the children are put on a team. Each team will have approximately 10 practices and will play at least 15 games for the program. All games and practice take place at the Skyview Ranch soccer fields. Practice focuses on individual and collective technical development and is designed and implemented by a high profile soccer coach. Outdoor soccer what a fantastic idea to enjoy the sun while your kids are being actively engaged in the sports of soccer. more game time, more practice time, a bigger space for proper development[/vc_column_text][vc_toggle title=”CMSA partnership please click to find out more”]The Skyview Ranch Soccer Association in collaboration with the Calgary Minor Soccer Association (CMSA) will be starting in April 2020 a new soccer program for kids in Skyview Ranch, Redstone, Cityscape and Cornerstone. This is one of several effort made by both associations to bring cost effective game of soccer close to our communities. The program will accept kids of age 2 and half to 10.  There will be four age groups: under 4 (U4), under 6 (U6), under 8 (U8) and under 10 (U10) for this new program. Practices and game start the last week of April 20202 and end in the last week of June 2020.

 

All practices and games to take place in Syview Ranch but may be extended to Redstone depending on the number of kids registered for the program.

The new programs will focus on grassroot player development through premier training in a fun and competitive environment with highly experience trainers.

 

U10 COMMUNITY LEAGUE

There will be a U10 community league. This program is designed for 8, 9and 10 year old kids. This age category is the “golden age of learning” when children become less self-centered and are more able to reflect on their actions and learn from their mistakes. This provides an optimal window for further development of individual skills.

 

The focus at this stage is on learning by doing, enhancing ball mastery, and learning the basic techniques and principles of play in a fun and challenging, and competitive environment.

Players are becoming more aware of how to interact with teammates. The idea of thinking about their decisions and movement as being related to themselves and 1 or 2 teammates and 2 or 3 opponents can be developed upon. Focus is on 1v1 to 3v3 situations during technical drills.

 

The goal is to provide training and game environments that promote the continued growth of ball mastery, an increased game awareness, and an appreciation for taking calculated risks in the attack through 3v3 to 8v8) game model, all in an environment that the players enjoy.

 

The sessions will focus between fun and practicing the 5V5 game. All players will have equal playing time and will have an opportunity to play all positions equally. The environment will be positive and the emphasis on fun and development.

 

Practices are scheduled on Tuesdays and games on Thursdays. Each practice is 45 minutes and should address individual ball mastery as well as individual and small group decisions, when attacking and defending. As the players mature they are capable of keeping track of more things that are occurring on the field, however game situations and problem solving should still be kept relatively simple. Continue to encourage risk taking and experimenting with the ball, but begin to get them thinking about themes such as working together with their teammates to solve problems, as well as getting used to keeping track of the other players on the field. Each game will be 2×35 minutes

There will be a total of 9 technical training and 9 games for the season. Two of the training will be powered by CMSA grassroot coaches. All U10 games will be played under the direction of CMSA referees.

 

U8 COMMUNITY LEAGUE

 

This program is designed for 6 and 7 year old kids. At this age, players are beginning to become aware of how to interact with teammates. They can be introduced to the idea of thinking about their decisions and movement as being related to themselves and 1 (or at most 2) teammates and 1 or 2 opponents. 1v1, 2v1, 2v2.

 

Competition is a central element in a player’s development, however, a competitive environment should not be a result-oriented environment. The differences must be made clear. A competitive environment at the youth level encourages decisions from player and coach alike that focus on performance rather than outcome (favoring ball skill and inventiveness as the means to find success within the rules and spirit of the game). The result is just one indicator of performance and at this age, not the most important one.

The practice sessions will be focused between fun practicing and the 5 v 5 games. All players will have equal playing time and will have an opportunity to play all positions equally. The environment will be positive and the emphasis on fun and development.

Each practice session is 45 minutes in length. Practices are on Tuesdays and games on Thursdays. Games play 5v5 (4v4 plus goalkeepers) – 2×30 minutes. Each team will have a total of 9 practices and 9 games for the season.

 

Individual technical development will be focused upon in practice. Also, small sided (4v4) game play is to be used, as this is an effective method of developing ball mastery and game awareness as it increases opportunities for players to have contact with the ball.

Two of the training will be powered by CMSA grassroot coaches.

 

U6/U4 COMMUNITY LEAGUE

This program is designed for 4 and 5 year old kids for U6 and 2 year and half to 3 year for U4.

The objective of this program is to give players the opportunity to develop basic movement and ball mastery skills in a fun setting, built around informal play and positive reinforcement. At this 1st stage of development the emphasis is on:

  • Physical literacy – building players body control and developing the ABCs (agility, balance, coordination & speed)
  • Ball Mastery – players develop an understanding on how to manipulate the ball. The ball is their friend!
  • Fun activities – Foster a love for the game.

Kids at this age love to use their imagination when they play. So games are designed with this in mind. There should aim to be no activities where players wait in lines to perform a pre-determined movement or required action.

Planting the seed of passion for soccer is the most important goal in this age group. All players must be active during activities and equal amounts of playing time given during fun games and 3 v 3 games.

This program is structured following the Canada Soccer and FIFA Preferred Training Model. In this approach, each training session is built around 4 activity “stations” that the players move through at regular intervals.

The 4 stations focus on, Fundamental Movement/Coordination, Soccer Technique, 1v1 games, and Small Sided Games. Addressing all 4 of these at each session will help develop well-rounded young players with a foundation in physical literacy, solid soccer skills and, ideally, an enduring love for the game.

Each practice session is 45 minutes in length, with three activities of 7 minutes each (Fundamental Movement/Coordination, Soccer Technique, and 1v1 games) in 1 area of the field, followed by a 25 minutes 3v3 game against another team. Games are on Wednesday and will be played 2×15 minutes on a 3v3. During game, on parent can be allowed on the field to help the kids. Parents bring their children to practice and game and will stay and assist them till the end of the game/practice. The parents may help their children to execute the exercises.

 

BENEFITS FOR THE NEW PROGRAM

The CMSA is the main official administrator of soccer programs in Calgary and surrounding areas. This a great opportunity to help kids learn more about soccer, learn more about soccer in the Calgary area and continue developing their skills for the sport they like so much.

This new program brings more quality and better organization to our community league. On the other hand, parents interesting in coaching and refereeing may be provided some courses by the CMSA. If you are interested in being a volunteer coach, please send an email to info@skyviewsoccer.ca.

It is a program of skills development for the U4 and upward.

Lessons take place every Monday and Wednesday from the first week of July to the second week of August. This is a total 6 weeks soccer program. Kid are put in small manageable groups with a head coach.

Practices are 1 hour with 30 minutes of small game for the U8 and upward. For U4 and U6 practice will be just 1 hour including a game of 30 minutes.

 

Below is a comprehensive description of the summer camp activities:

 

Week 1: Ball Control / First Touch

Emphasis will be placed on being able to control and trap the ball using both feet, chest, thigh, head and other parts of the body.

 

Week 2: Ball Skills(Fast Feet)

This application is to learn specific moves which enable you to maneuver better with the ball. The coaches will teach the fire dance, inside roll, outside roll, pull turn and other advanced maneuvers. When a student learns the fast feet skills, he/she is better adept at handling and controlling the ball. This builds confidence and self-esteem in playing the game of soccer.

 

Week 3: Ball Juggling

This activity helps the student gain coordination and develops ball control. Many of our students are proud of their progress by increasing the number of times that they can juggle. We will encourage students to use both feet, thighs and head.

 

Week 4: Ball Passing & Shooting

This activity will be taught using the inside and outside of both feet, one and two touch passing, and short & long passes. The technical and tactical skills will focus on passing to a player, passing in front of a player and moving into space to receive a pass. Shooting – the focus is to learn and develop the fundamentals of kicking such as a proper stance, planting of the foot, and follow through. Students will learn the art of shooting with both feet and being able to shoot accurately using the laces, inside and outside of both feet.

 

Week 5: Dribbling & Heading

This week activity will concentrate on being able to dribble using the inside and outside of both feet, in very tight situations, on long runs with the ball close to your feet, and while cutting in every direction possible.
Heading – students will learn to use the head properly and effectively to score goals, pass to teammates, or just to control the ball.

 

Week 6: Special Week with Invited Coach

An invited coach will be present at this last week of the camp to share his know-how and experience with the campers. His drills will mostly focus on skill development, team building, and small-sided games. Emphasis is also placed on enjoyment and appreciation of the game of soccer.

 

Week 7: Special Week with Invited Coach

The camp activities will culminate with a World Cup on the final day.

 

At the end of each lesson coaches explain and instruct kid and parents on soccer regulations and the game.

 

At the beginning of the camp every registered kid will receive a team jersey and a ball. At the end of the camp all registered kid will receive a participation medal. If a kid has attended at least 80% of the lessons he or she will receive a certificate.

The biggest challenge in this program is again the finances and human resources. In term of infrastructure we have the 2 biggest soccer fields in Skyview Ranch booked for the program.[/vc_toggle][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Registration” tab_id=”1589768922202-35351f7f-b93c”][vc_btn title=”Click here to Register” color=”turquoise” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fform.jotform.com%2F70994603593264|title:Summer%20Camp%20Registration|target:%20_blank|”][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_tabs][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_toggle title=”Indoor Soccer” use_custom_heading=”true”]
