RVCC 2022 Mini Soccer

Registration Open Until March 15th

WELCOME TO MINI SOCCER

Mini soccer is open to all children aged 3 to 8. There is no requirement to have any previous skills or experience with soccer. Mini soccer is primarily focused on ensuring players have fun while learning some basic soccer skills. Mini soccer is licensed and sanctioned by the Manitoba Soccer Association (MSA).

Riverview Community Centre will supply the jerseys, soccer balls, and nets. In terms of equipment, each child will need: 

  • Proper footwear (Running Shoes or Cleats); and
  • Shin Pads and Soccer Socks (required for 6,7,8; not required for younger children)

Program Overview

U-3 and U-4/5 programs:

The 3-year-old division is a very basic introduction to soccer. Parents may be required to participate more actively to help their child and the coach. At the U-4/5 level, the players will develop basic soccer skills (i.e. dribbling, passing, and shooting). 

These sessions are designed to provide all players with multiple opportunities to touch the ball in a fun and positive environment. The majority of each session will be fun games (mostly with a soccer ball), followed by a short scrimmage against another Riverview team (3 v 3; no goalie). 

U-6, U-7, and U-8 Program:

Basic soccer techniques are developed and team skills are introduced. Teams play either 4 v 4 or 5 v 5, with a goalie. Traditionally, the 6/7/8 year old teams travel to play other clubs (Wildwood, Fort Garry, and Lord Roberts). Last year, we did not travel to other clubs due to COVID-19. We are monitoring the current public health situation and will decide on whether there will be games with other clubs closer to the season start date.

The 2022 mini soccer season will run from April 25 (weather/field conditions permitting) until June 23.

Coaching:

The mini soccer program relies on volunteer coaches. Coaching is a great way to become involved in the community and be part of your child’s growth within a sport. Do not be afraid if you are unfamiliar with soccer – we will provide resources and materials to help you run a practice. In addition, there are coaching clinics available for those interested. Lastly, coaching is a great way to you to fulfill your volunteer bond requirement.
