U5s - Practice is Coed and we will use a series of exercises and games designed to get kids comfortable with the ball but also with the physical activity of soccer (running, moving with the ball, jumping, playing within a large group). High school coaches will demonstrate and manage the sessions but parents are welcome to help. 

U6s - Practice is Coed and we will use slightly more advanced exercises and drills. The kids will be divided into small teams and we will introduce scrimmage play (15-20 minutes in each session). The drills are demonstrated by high school coaches but parents volunteers are required to supervise the kids. All volunteers are welcome. Its fun and it improves the level of engagement of the kids.

U8s - Boys and girls will participate in the same sessions but at different times. The groups are larger and the goal is to develop confidence on the ball and improve technique (ball control, shooting , passing, dribbling). Scrimmage play will be 30 - 20 minutes. The drills are demonstrated by high school coaches but parents volunteers are required to supervise the kids. All volunteers are welcome. Its fun and it improves the level of engagement of the kids.
