VF United Soccer Club and the Victor YMCA offers a Micro Soccer Program for 5-6 year old children in the Summer. Micro Soccer provides a fun and safe environment to learn to play soccer through age appropriate activities and small-sided soccer games.
Micro Soccer is a program that includes age appropriate activities involving games or activities where all the players are involved and the activity is appropriate for the player’s age group and development.
Children need to be successful to learn. Asking a 6 year old or younger player to play a position or formation is setting them up for failure. They do not have the technical or cognitive ability to play a position successfully.
Our plans include assigning each player two set days a week for a one hour practice each session. Your child will have soccer either Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00-7:00pm or 7:00-8:00pm at an assigned field. Fridays will be make up days. You will not get to choose the days or times. You may request to play with one other player. Requests are not guaranteed.
A large group of players will meet at the field each session and get split into several smaller groups. Each group will be lead by a coach who has a lesson plan of activities. Every player will get the same instruction/activities followed by a small sided game at every session.
We appreciate parent volunteers to help our coaches each session.
If you have any specific questions about this program or if you are willing to volunteer please contact us.
Look for registration announcements on our website mid-winter.
