 U5 (2018) and U6 (2017) players will enjoy 14 weeks of fun together with their teammates and volunteer coach, developing skills, enjoying the fresh air and making memories that will last a lifetime!

Each week during the outdoor program, players will learn to love soccer along with 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.

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!

Program Objective

Introductory level: The key objective of the program is for children to develop fundamental skills through play and general movement with the assistance of parent engagement and encouragement!

Roles of the Coach, Facilitator and Parent:

Facilitator: In the U5 & U6 age group, the OSC facilitator works with the players to develop their physical literacy skills during the warm-up and weekly activities.  These skills include running, jumping, kicking, dribbling, and changing direction. The facilitator also, along with help from the team’s volunteer coach, leads the weekly small-sided 3v3 game where they implement simplified rules and ensure player safety.

Coach: In the U5 & U6 age group, the team coach plays an important part in ensuring the youth soccer players are supported. The coach is the liaison between the Club and the parents, with their main duties off the field include picking up and distributing items (i.e., uniforms, sponsorship material, etc.) for the team as well as sending emails to ensure all players are aware of important dates. As there is an OSC Facilitator leading the program, the responsibility of the volunteer coach is to simply support and encourage the players through the activities. The coach will also manage the substitutions for the 3v3 game.

Parent: A parent/guardian must be present at each session. *Parents are encouraged to participate with this age group.
