Small-Sided Game Program
Welcome to Fall Soccer! Our focus for our youngest players will be on building confidence on the ball through games to encourage balance, coordination, agility, vision, individual ball handling skills, 1V1 to 3V3 defending/attacking, and of course, having LOTS of fun.
Your player will be part of our Friday Small-sided Game Night Program. Players will be demonstrating what they have learned during the week, showing us their creativity, enthusiasm and enjoying our cheering at the games. Games are scheduled for October and may look a bit different than in the past to accommodate COVID restrictions.
PRACTICE: All practices will be held at the YCSC Arena (behind the Carlton Market) starting Tuesday September 8th.
Note: No cleats at the arena, running or court shoes and shin guards please. Bring a water bottle ( name on bottle please). If you provide a snack for your player, please do not bring it into the Arena. Low glycemic, health snacks are great before or after their training session.
There will be a separate Entry and Exit gate. Please walk your young players to and from the arena gate, No children should be alone in the parking area.
A mask is required (for ALL) to enter and exit and additionally for all times when social distancing is not possible.
A waiver is now required for everyone who enters the arena. ARENA WAIVER
Use hand sanitizer at entrance and exit.

PLEASE: It is best to start your player at the level they will be most confident and comfortable. it is much easier to move a player up than down. If you have a question about what level is best for your player please call Coach Karen.
PARENTS: Young players should have a parent at the pitch during every practice and at games. We want our young players to feel comfortable and confident and have a parent to attend to them for any personal needs. At games, parents should cheer, but please refrain from directing your player. Soccer is a sport that requires the development of vision, decision making and creativity. If you tell your player what to do, you are ultimately limiting their growth potential. If your player is missing an aspect of the game and you want to help, try gently asking them questions that can lead to self discovery.
Please contact me with any concerns or suggestions at anytime during the season! We want this to be the best experience possible for every player. Thank you for signing up for the YCSC 2020 Fall Program, its going to be a fantastic season!
