LITTLE SCOTTIES - 5U SCHOOLYARD

Hello Little Scottie Parents,

We welcome you all to the 5U Schoolyard soccer program here in Region 32!

We hope the program serves as a wonderful, fun, non-competitive introduction to soccer that will stoke a lifelong interest in and love for "the beautiful game" among your children.

OBJECTIVE

The objective of the 5U Soccer Program in AYSO is to provide young players and their parents with a "pressure free" introduction to the beautiful and simple game of soccer. At this age, players should be exposed to soccer by playing simple, fun activities and games that require little or no practice, and minimal time commitment.


HOW IT WORKS

5U is set up to be a fun introduction to the fundamentals and basic rules of soccer. Unlike the other divisions, there are no set teams in 5U. Each week the field will be divided up into eight equal grids, with each grid doing the exact same things under the guidance of one of our activity leaders. A child doesn't have to go to the same grid each week. Just the same session time. The sessions last for one hour and are divided into two parts: a series of fun drills and games for the first 40 minutes, followed by a 20 minute scrimmage.


THE GAMES

The scrimmages are played with even numbers of players and no goal keepers. Scores will not be recorded and there will be little interference from grown-ups. The emphasis will be on applying what the players have learned during the teaching activities. We will not have competitive games, as forcing competition on such young players is counter-productive.


LENGTH OF PROGRAM

1 1/2 hour sessions every Saturday for 10 weeks. (see program start date on website)


WHERE

All sessions will be held at Cabrillo Park in Upland.


EQUIPMENT

Each child must come each week with shin guards, a number 3 size soccer ball, a water bottle and either soccer cleats or decent sneakers.

The children will all receive league provided uniforms which consist of jersey, socks and shorts. The uniforms will be distributed just prior to your child's first session.

We hope this information helps you understand our 5U program and approach.

Looking forward to a lot of fun ahead.
