U7-U8 “Mini Paws” Outdoor
EARLY BIRD DEADLINE:
These 13 week programs are specifically geared for boys and girls born in 2012 and 2013. All sessions will be hosted at Rotary Park* (3302 Tacc Drive).
This program aligns with Ontario Soccer’s FUNdamentals program. The sessions will be led by volunteer coaches and supported with Technical Coaches under the leadership of the Recreational Head Coach. At this stage, coaches and teachers should create a stimulating learning environment where the atmosphere is “Freedom and Fun.”
*NEW* In 2020, NMSC is introducting home and away jerseys to the U7-U12 divisions. Each player within these age groups will receive a red and a black jersey. The season schedule that is sent out prior to the start of the season will indicate which jersey is required for which game. Players are responsible for wearing the appropriate jersey each week. It may be beneficial to bring both jerseys just in case! This will help make potential team re-balancing easier.

The physical curriculum emphasizes the ABCs of movement: agility, balance, coordination, and speed, as well as running, jumping, twisting, kicking, throwing and catching. Technical instruction is introduced through movement exercises and games that promote a feel for the ball.
Keeping in mind that small children are naturally egocentric, basic tactical concepts involving basic cooperation between players can be introduced. Playing situations work best for teaching understanding of the game and building basic game intelligence and decision making.

The addition this season of technical coaches who ran the practices and facilitated game play for the U7 boys was outstanding. The skill development throughout the season was very noticeable and we were extremely impressed with the games and drills that these coaches ran each week. Our son played on Tuesday nights and was fortunate enough to have Coach Damien or Coach Lorenzo each week and we could not have been more impressed. They both learned all of the boy's names quickly, kept practices and games moving at an appropriate pace and ensured that each player was fully involved and having fun. We would love to see the inclusion of technical coaches at the higher age divisions - such an amazing change to the program this year, we cannot say enough positive things about it!
