U10-U13 LEARN TO TRAIN OUTDOOR (2021)

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 boys and girls born between 2008 – 2011.    Spaces are limited – register early to avoid disappointment.

** Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, parents/spectators will not be permitted on the field during programming. Due to the double cohort rules, players in the Skills Centre development program cannot register for this program **
** As the guidelines surrounding COVID-19 are fluid, these recommendations could change at any time **

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.
DAY 2 – WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY
    • Sessions will commence with a warm-up.
    • Game format either 7v7 or 9v9 depending on age group, with match officials.
    • Volunteer/Parent coaches are required.

We are excited to be able to provide a safe and progressive recreational soccer program that will help keep your son and daughter engaged in physical activity, enjoying soccer with their peers and improving their competence and confidence over the summer months.

TEAMMATE REQUEST

WMSC will make every effort to accommodate placement on a team with ONE other registered player if submitted by the April 30th deadline. All teammate requests must be one-to-one reciprocated requests. One-sided requests will not be considered. Should you have special circumstances or medical conditions that merit special consideration, please provide a note in writing once your registration has been completed. WMSC Teammate Request Policy


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. 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 in the main menu. Returning coaches – please use your current coaching profile.


FACE MASKS

Players must wear a mask should they enter RIM Park, as well as in any common areas (ie washrooms). During the program, players may continue to wear their face masks. At this time, it is not mandatory to wear a face mask during training. If your child will be removing their mask during training, the advice provided by medical practitioners is to ensure it is kept in a zip-locked bag or small Tupperware container where it can be sealed. If this is decided for your player as an option, please have them bring one of the above with them to put their mask into whilst on the field.
