WELCOME TO WORLD OF MINI SOCCER
Mini soccer is open to all children with no previous skills required. Mini-soccer primarily is focused on ensuring players have fun, get the maximum number of touches on the ball and develop good basic soccer skills, athleticism and sportsmanship.
3- 5 Year-Old Program:
These leagues are designed to provide all players with multiple opportunities to touch the ball in a positive environment. They are designed to expose young children to the basics of dribbling, passing and shooting.
6, 7 and 8 Year-Old Program:
Soccer emphasizes skill development, personal growth and fun. Basic soccer techniques are developed as well as introducing team skills. Teams play 5 on 5 on larger, lined fields.
Coaching is a great way for you to get involved and be a part of your child’s growth within a sport. Don’t be afraid if you are unfamiliar with soccer, it is about providing positive sporting experiences. Some great resources and materials will be provided to increases your knowledge about soccer. Lastly, it’s an rewarding way to satisfy your volunteer bond requirement. In past years, I have had many sign up for Assistant Coaches, but few sign up for Head Coach (Coach); please consider the Head Coach (Coach) position as it makes creating teams and the start season much easier.
If you are planning to commit to coaching for Riverview, coaching clinics are available as outlined below. Please contact Jason at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to arrange for enrollment in a clinic.
