Youth Transitional Scrimmage

Kid Goalie


YOUTH TRANSITIONAL SCRIMMAGE


What is it?


Our Youth Transitional Scrimmage program
is for children ages 4, 5, and 6 years old who are looking to gain soccer game experience. Our knowledgeable instructors will take a child-development focused approach to coaching the kids through instructional soccer games.


What's the point?


In our past youth league experience, we noticed the U6 leagues lacked direction and struggled to understand the foundational rules of soccer (ex. knowing what it means when the referee blows the whistle).

Kids will play a real soccer game as the coaches instruct them through the process with hands on help to direct and educate them on the fundamentals and the rules of the sport. The goal of this scrimmage is to help kids have a smoother transition into youth leagues.


How will it run?


There will be two teams consisting of 5 field players and 1 goalie each. Substitutes will be encouraged to cheer on their teammates and practice good sportsmanship while on the sidelines. Players will rotate on and off the field frequently. The first 15 minutes will be a warm-up with an emphasis on team bonding, stretching, and building good foundational habits. Coaches will dive into positive team dynamics leading up to game time. The other 45 minutes will be spent playing a scrimmage with 20 minute halves and a 5 minute half time to discuss team strategies.

Coaches will randomly pick teams on a weekly basis.


What's Required?


Shin guards are required. Closed toe shoes only, no cleats are allowed. We recommend bringing a water bottle. No outside food or drinks allowed inside the facility.
