Training Sessions

There is one training session per week. Training sessions are scheduled on the same day and time each week and will be held inside a school gym in South Surrey (Fall) or on a local field in South Surrey/White Rock (Spring).  Practices are led by one of our professional staff coaches with assistance from developing volunteer coaches.

Training sessions are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday at either 5:00 pm or 6:00 pm, depending on the team.

Note. Due to the number of participants, we cannot accommodate training day/time requests.

Game Day

Fall/Winter game day for this introductory program consists of periodized jamborees during the winter months. The gradual introduction to outdoor games through periodized jamborees will prepare players for the transition to the club’s outdoor spring program starting in April.

Curriculum

The curriculum of the Micro Development Program will be based around teaching players the active start of soccer and team play in a fun and non-threatening environment. It is designed to meet the learning objectives of Active Start (Stage 1) of the Canadian Soccer Association’s Long Term Player Development Pathway. By allowing the professional staff to support every player/coach in these ages, it ensures that everyone receives a consistent coach and player development seasonal plan.
