- Our program follows the Long-Term Development Plan of the Canadian Soccer Association. Our goals are to meet the needs of all players and to ensure that children enjoy the game all the while, developing their abilities. The “Active Start” stage of soccer begins when children (4-6 years old) first enter the sport and learn their first kicks and movements of the game. The next “FUNdamentals” stage for young players (7-8 years old) encourages players to have fun and develop freedom with the ball.
- Sessions will last 50 minutes during which a technical skill with a ball and an important rule of the game will be taught. A 25-minute game against an opponent will follow (except U4).
- The program will run from the end of May to early September. Fun tournaments will be organized to enhance the game atmosphere and to encourage camaraderie between teams and players.
A MESSAGE FROM YOUR VP MICRO
My name is Alex and I’m your new Micro VP.
A MESSAGE FROM YOUR MICRO ASSISTANT SPORTING DIRECTOR
My name is Nick von Roretz. I have been a member with PCASA since 2002. As a player, a coach, and a Technical Coordinator, with the club, I value the passion and integrity of the sport (soccer) everyday. I will be overseeing the Micro Program (u4-u8) this year and look forward to working with our future soccer superstars. As an elementary school teacher, I enjoy educating children when they are learning the fundamentals of new aspects and subjects. I will work with the players and coaches to ensure their experience is memorable and fun. See you on the field!
