U6-U7 FIRST KIX
U6-U7 First Kix
At this stage of the BC Soccer Player Pathway, players should participate in stimulating practices and games that develop basic technical skills in a FUN atmosphere. The emphasis should be movement exercises and games that promote a feel for the ball while teaching basic principles of play within a fun but structured setting. Mini game formats are used, ranging from 3v3 to 5v5 and a basic league schedule can be created but no standings should be kept. All players should play equal time and try all team positions, including goalkeeper, and equal time should be allotted to practices and games.
This program offers professional skill development and small-sided games every weekend! There are two sessions per week: a Saturday outdoors and a mid-week indoors in a local gym. Every other Saturday, the teams will rotate between a skill development session with an NVFC professional coach and a small-sided games day managed by Team Coaches.
Teams: 12 players per team; 4 vs 4 with no goalkeeper.
Games: One session per week on Saturdays on grass at either Norgate or Brookbank. U6 teams are assigned a time of 11:20am or 12:30pm. U7 teams are assigned a time of 9:00am or 10:10am. Sessions are 60 minutes in length.
Development: Every other Saturday session, Club Technical staff coach individual teams on drills or small sided games.
Field Closures: Field status through North Vancouver Recreation Commission at https://www.nvrc.ca/facilities-fields/field-statuslocations. Teams are not to cancel any Saturday sessions for any reason. The Club will advise parents directly of any last minute cancellations.
Uniforms: Players receive a complete uniform of a jersey, shorts and socks TO KEEP. Players are expected to wear the NVFC approved uniform at every session. The uniform must be returned if a player withdraws.
Equipment: Each team is provided with size 3 balls, cones and pinnies during the Club wide Uniform & Equipment Distribution Day in August TBA. The Head Coach is responsible for the equipment. Equipment is kept by team officials (head coach, assistant manager or team manager) and is kept until the following season when the team receives a top up of equipment as needed. Players require a water bottle, shin guards and cleats for outside games. No cleats in the gym.
Practices: One session per week on a weekday evening at a local school gym. Parents MUST stay in the gym during practice.
