FUNdamental Program Outline


CSA FUNdamental Programs

Centre Soccer's FUNdamental Program is designed to meet the needs of our youngest players, all programming is focused on making the game fun and is focused on learning the basic skills of the game. The Fundamental Programs are an introduction to soccer, providing players repetition on the ball and learning the basic skills of the game. Includes teaching: fundamental movements, running (forwards, backwards and sideways), jumping, turning, twisting and bending. Individual players spend as much time as possible on the ball and everything is done to make the game FUN!

No scores are kept in games. No Refs will be used. Coaches are to restart play when the ball goes out of bounds, with a kick in from the sidelines and kicks from any ball out on the end lines (goal or corner) and at midfield after a goal. Goals should be celebrated. Fouls are not called but coaches should keep play safe and fun for players. No slide tackling is allowed. One coach from each team is allowed on the field to assist players. All age groups are coed and training to games is broken down to a 1 to 1 ratio.

U5 - U6 FUNdamental Programs

Eric Wales and Soccer Shots will direct our FUNdamental program for players in the u5 - u6. Soccer Shots’ outstanding crew of instructors consists of local college soccer players, education students and other highly qualified and motivated soccer coaches. Their #1 goal is to ensure your child is having a good and safe time all the while learning basic soccer skills, teamwork, and fair play. By having Soccer Shots organize and run training sessions during the week, we hope that parent coaches will enjoy the opportunity to work with the kids without the pressure of coming up with activities to keep the players engaged. Coaches then can enjoy the opportunity to be around coaches trained to work with this young age group.
