2022 Fall Indoor Active Start Program – U5 (2018)

Join OSC’s Active Start program and introduce your player to the beautiful game!

Each week during the Fall program, players will learn to love soccer alongside their team as they participate in age and stage appropriate games led by a paid OSC Staff Member (Facilitator). Facilitators will guide dedicated volunteer coaches through each set of activities, and ensure every session is a rewarding experience for your players.  Parents are encouraged to engage alongside their children as players get used to structured activity in a sport setting.

Weekly sessions will include warm-up games, activity-based play, and a modified game component with the goal of keeping players engaged in a positive learning environment. Following the core principles set in place by Canada Soccer, all players will get lots of time on the ball, and enjoy a variety of activities that will allow them to develop social, emotional and physical tools that will last them a lifetime.

The key goal of the program is for players to enjoy their time being active - come join OSC to start your player’s lifelong love of soccer!
