U4 & U5 – Role of the Active Coach

  • Provide fun, safe and enjoyable activity. Provide well organized practice and games.
  • Provide stimulating activities that promote fundamental skills and movement.
  • Communicate appropriately with children.

At this introductory level of play, the objective is to get children moving and to keep them active.

The physical curriculum provides for learning basic fundamental movement skills such as:

  • running – jumping – twisting – throwing – catching

The technical requirements are not about teaching the techniques of soccer and are nothing more than running with the ball, stopping and changing direction with the ball, dribbling, kicking, shooting.

We want players at this age to fall in love with the game!
