PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Grassroots Development Program has been re-defined from our past U9 – U12 Target and Development Program. The Grassroots Development Program will place a higher emphasis on the individual player and ensure that the individual is placed into an appropriate training and competition environment. The changes will align WMSC with Ontario Soccer’s Development Matrix and Canada Soccer’s Long Term Player Development Plan.

RETREAT LINE

When the goalkeeper has the ball in their possession at a goal kick, after making a save or when the ball is in their hands, the opposing team members would “retreat” to the predetermined area of the field.

The predetermined areas are as follows:

  • 5v5 – Half way line. It is recommended the goalkeeper does not drop kick the ball
  • 7v7 – 1/3rds line
  • 9v9 – 1/3rds line
