These Saturday programs are specifically geared for boys and girls born in 2011 and 2012. All sessions will be hosted at Bechtel Park indoor field. This program aligns with Ontario Soccer’s FUNdamentals program. The sessions will be lead by Parent Volunteers and supported with Skill Instructors under the leadership of the Technical Director.
WMSC utilizes volunteer coaches for our Recreational Soccer programs. Volunteering is a terrific way to get involved in soccer, while at the same time supporting your club and your community.
Coaches, if you are not the primary account holder in the PowerUp registration system, you are required to have an individual account with a unique email address. Once you have created your profile you can volunteer with the club by clicking the VOLUNTEER NOW in the main menu. Returning coaches – please use your current coaching profile.
GAME LEADER TRAINING PROGRAM
The objective of the Game Leader program is to allow for an improved, child-friendly approach to supervising small-sided games for children U6-U8 and creating more opportunities for parents to get involved. The Game Leader program has been designed by the Ontario Soccer Grassroots, Referee and Coaching departments. It is supported and endorsed by the Canadian Soccer Association.

The objective of the FUNdamentals program is to help athletes recognize the movements going on around them. We use small-sided games (5v5) as a method to develop a player’s ability to read what others are going to do. By allowing players to make decisions, expose them to working out problems, and coming up with solutions on their own, is the key strategy at this stage in their development.

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
