U10-U13 LEARN TO TRAIN OUTDOOR (2024)

The Learn to Train age groups are regarded as the “golden age of learning” as the players have a greater capacity to learn new skills. This is the beginning of the Learn to Train stage of the Long Term Player Development Model and a lot of the practices are spent working on technique, encouraging the players to “think the game” and improving their ability as movers. Our weekday programs are specifically geared for players born between 2011- 2014.    Spaces are limited – register early to avoid disappointment.

Volunteer Now – Parent Coach Volunteers are needed for these age groups. To better recognize the volunteer Head Coaches/Game Leaders in the House League Program, WMSC is offering a $50.00 Coaching Credit to those who successfully complete the full season which can be used toward future programming. This credit does not apply to the U3 Parent & Child program. See below for additional information on how to VOLUNTEER.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Waterloo United presents an outdoor recreational program led by a combination of Skill Instructors and volunteer coaches and following a curriculum developed by The Technical Director and approved by Canada Soccer. Our approach incorporates research-approved strategies to help keep kids engaged, develop coordination, adaptability and skill while having fun and building psych-social skills.

What can you expect:

DAY 1 – MONDAY/TUESDAY
    • Paid Coaching Staff
    • The first session will combine continued technical and physical literacy development before progressing into small group game formats to include all players. These small (2 v 2 – 5 v 5) formats have been shown in top European countries to accelerate growth through increased interactions within authentic settings, as players make more decisions and have more opportunities to find their game personality. Game leaders may also assist in running these sessions should they choose.
DAY 2 – WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY
        • Parent Volunteer Coaches are needed for this program. Please consider volunteering for your child’s team.
        • Sessions will commence with a warm-up. Game format either 7v7 or 9v9 depending on age group, with match officials.

       


JUNIOR BEES BLACK AND YELLOW  PROGRAM

  • COST: $100.00 (in addition to the $295 registration fees)
  • LOCATION: RIM Park

*Players must be registered in the recreational program in order to participate in the BVB Junior Bees Program*

BVB IA Waterloo uses this stage to teach young players ages 7-11 the fundamentals of technical skills and reinforce the game’s love for players of all backgrounds and ability levels.

On the field, players are given fun, enjoyable, creative training opportunities that develop and emphasize technically proficient players. While the sessions are enjoyable, setting the players up for success over the long term is essential. This foundation is critical for success in competitive soccer.

This player-centered pathway approach considers that every player has their own speed at which they develop. Facilitated by our club instructors, the environment at training will be challenging yet fun. Players will find themselves in situations where they will become problem solvers giving them a much more superior soccer I.Q.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

WMSC relies on the generosity of volunteer coaches for our Recreational House League soccer programs. Volunteering is a terrific way to get involved in soccer, while at the same time supporting your club and your community.

If your child is registered in the House League Program, consider becoming the coach for their team! Our volunteer coaches do not need to have any formal soccer or coaching experience to be a part of the team. All that is needed is positivity, enthusiasm and a supportive attitude! Our volunteer coaches are assigned one team, and every week during the games, that individual helps get the team ready for their game with a quick warmup and provides guidance and support during the game. Match officials are provided for all games.

Coaches, if you are not the primary account holder in the Power Up 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 -> Team Official Application in the main menu. Returning coaches – please use your current coaching profile.
