Program Outline

Our grassroots program is designed with four key elements considered in the program design.

1) The grassroots program is a safe, fun and game based soccer environment. We guarantee they will be active and moving for the duration of each practice. Our aim is to drive a lifelong passion for the game of soccer in your child.

2) Our grassroots program aims to deliver a physical literacy which is transferable to any sport and has a heavy focus on the ABCs of movement (Agility balance and coordination).

3) Our grassroots program is focused on each individual child we aim to develop their soccer skills first of all and also to help develop their self confidence in what can be a daunting environment for some at this age. We cater for all learning styles and our coaches will patiently work with each child as they develop at their own pace.

4) Our grassroots program will encourage your kids to practice at home learning to the love the game. Sorry Mom and Dad this might mean you have to brush up on those goalkeeping skills.

Game formats are small sided 1 V 0, 1 V 1 and up to 4 V 4 maximizing the touches each child will achieve per practice.
