BIRTH YEARS: 2013 & 2012
Our focus at the U6 and U7 age groups is to create an atmosphere and environment through practice and competition where players are challenged to be creative and solve problems. The priority at these young ages is on individual player development in a fun and rewarding experience. Setting the fundamentals and developing technically superior soccer players will always be at the forefront of our player development curriculum. Great importance is placed on age appropriate activities and creating a child centered learning environment where building the player comes first then the team. Players will practice once a week throughout the season in an academy style format which U.S. Soccer has determined as a “Best Practice” and have a five - six week game season (each in the fall and then in the spring). For more information, please contact Kendra Collins (Ohio South coach of the year).
$350/full year; $200/season
