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.

DAY 1 – MONDAY/TUESDAY
    • Volunteer/Parent game leaders are required to lead the program on Day 1.
    • Sessions will commence with some physical literacy, fun and coordination. Players will be placed in situations where skill can emerge through careful manipulation of the environment, variable repetition and activities to promote confidence and domination of the ball.
    • Game play (approximately 40 min) will conclude each session, allowing players to learn through playing while applying skills in context. There are no scores or standings kept at these age groups.
DAY 2 –  WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY
    • Paid Coaching Staff
    • The second 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 run these sessions should they choose with instructors assistance.

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.


 LITTLE  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 Little Bee 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.

Volunteer Now – Game Leaders Needed!

The Game Leader program creates opportunities for parents to get involved with their child’s sport, and has been designed by Ontario Soccer Grassroots, Referee and Coaching departments. It is supported and endorsed by the Canadian Soccer Association.

The Game Leader will be trained to achieve a few objectives on the field:

  • Enable children to have a fun and rewarding experience while competing in small sided games.
  • Ensure player safety.
  • Implement simplified rules while keeping the game moving — limiting stoppages and assisting the young players with all restarts.

Completing the Game Leader training is very simple. The entire online process of watching the video, completing the quiz, printing your Game Leader Certificate and printing/saving your Game Leader booklet should take no longer than 35 minutes.

Game Leaders, 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 volunteers – please use your current coaching profile.
