U9-U12 Learn to Train Indoor

These programs are designed for boys and girls born from 2007 through to 2010. These divisions play 5 aside games with goalkeepers and referees. This program aligns with Ontario Soccer’s Learn to Train program and is supervised by WMSC’s Technical Staff. Parent volunteers are needed to coach at these ages. The Club will provide 2 Club Led coaching sessions by our qualified technical staff throughout the season at the U9/10 age group.



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.

Learning to read the movements going on around them are critical skills to be developed at this age. Playing small-sided games can develop players’ ability to read what other players are going to do based on their movements. Let your players make decisions, expose them to working out problems, and coming up with solutions. Playing situations work best for teaching understanding and building basic game sense.

  • Emphasis is on fun, exercise, teamwork, continued skill development
  • Teach basic principles of play, teach simple combinations
  • During games, everyone should play equal time, in all positions
  • No scores or standings are kept

U9 – U12 Learn to Train


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
