DRSC will offer a program for the u6 and u7 age group that will train once a week on Friday afternoons. The prime learning years for soccer are said to be U7 to U12. Teaching and polishing basic skills are the emphasis of this program. We will continue to focus on the u7 players and also invite any u6 player interested in attending the program. Any U8 player not on a current team will also be welcome at the developmental program.
The training will take place in 2016 at Bliss Fields in Rehoboth MA on Friday evenings from 5:30 to 6:30 from April 29th through June 24th. There will be no training session on May 13th and May 27th)
The curriculum for U6-7 is basic skills and fun. We plan to scrimmage at the end of every session. The program is less formal than U8 and older competitive teams. If there is interest, the u7s may play in tournaments (pay as you go), scrimmages against other clubs and towns, or an indoor tournament. Again, everything outside the regularly scheduled training is optional. Typically we will email the group and to get replies from those who want to participate in a particular tournament or indoor league etc.
We communicate almost totally by email. Please be certain to include a current email address in your registration. Whatever age your son/daughter is on August 1st is their soccer age for the year until the next August 1st.
If your child has an interest in the game of soccer player then you should consider attending the program. It isn't a complicated game and we are trying to train your young player with solid fundamental skill, teach them basic soccer techniques, inspire them to become better and make training fun for them. Most of all they will have fun and find an appreciation for the beautifully game.
We are looking for parents to participate in the practices with the possibility of becoming a coaches or managers in the future. Our club fees are low because we have all volunteer coaches. Please volunteer to help out at the practice.
Note that all volunteers must complete a Cori form
