Sault Youth Soccer Club and League
Pre-Civics training program 2014 for U10 and U11 players

 

Dear parents of girls and boys born in 2003-2004!

The Sault Youth Soccer Club invites your child to participate in the pre-Civics training program 2014. The program is expanded to include two age groups: players born in 2003 and 2004. The program objective is to train all players who wish to improve their basic physical literacy, develop strong skill foundation, and have fun.

Key features of the program:

  • The program is free of charge and is open to all players born in 2003-2004 and registered with the Sault Youth Soccer Club. There is no selection process to participate in the program: every child deserves the opportunity to develop as a soccer player!
  • Program training sessions will be held every Tuesday (girls) and Wednesday (boys) at Strathclair Soccer Complex beginning in June 2014. Please visit the Sault Youth Soccer Club and League website later for more information on the training dates, times, and locations
  • Training sessions will be conducted by qualified coaches with solid playing background and experience with coaching competitive youth soccer teams
  • Program participants will continue playing in the Sault Youth recreational league (house league)
  • There is no cost to participate in training during the summer: join the program and enjoy the opportunity to improve as a player!
  • Players involved in training will have the opportunity to participate in a soccer tournament in September 2014. Tentative destinations are Petoskey, Michigan, or Traverse City, Michigan. Participation in the tournament will be based solely on commitment to training, attendance record, and work ethic, not on raw athletic ability!
  • Training will continue throughout the indoor season. Tentative schedule for indoor training includes weekly sessions from early November to mid-December and from early February to the end of April. Financial commitment from the parents will be required to cover the cost of renting field time at the Northern Community Centre.

Come out and join the program. Please do not hold your child back from becoming a better soccer player! With proper attitude and training the sky is the limit!

About the program
The pre-Civics training program is aligned with the Long Term Player Development model introduced by the Ontario Soccer Association and its main focus is on developing skills to let your child enjoy the game of soccer for years to come whether she (he) chooses to play for competitive or recreational teams.

The program was launched in the summer of 2013 and was hugely successful. The total of 67 girls and boys born in 2003 participated in weekly training sessions run by qualified coaches. At the end of 2013 outdoor season, three teams (two girls' teams and one boys' team) attended a soccer tournament in Traverse City, Michigan. The teams were formed of all players interested in gaining tournament experience: there was no selection of players, every participant of the pre-Civics training program was welcome to attend the tournament. All three teams performed very well, and kids and parents had a blast!

The pre-Civics training continued throughout 2013-2014 indoor season at the Northern Community Centre. The cost of training was kept to a minimum: $150 per player for 18 training sessions. The indoor training will conclude with two teams (one girls' team and one boys' team) attending a soccer tournament in Petoskey, Michigan, on June 15-16, 2014.
