Each age group (U5/6 and U7/8) must have approximately 8-10 players per team and commit to make it a fun and productive season. It is difficult to run drills and games with limited players.
Plus each team must have parent volunteers to step up to coach and assistant coach. One coach is responsible to watch the field players and the other coach is on the sideline to run the substitute(s) and compliment the kid’s ability after plays. There are paid coaching clinics in early March that provide basic skill set and an online course ‘Respect in sports’.
Each player’s parent(s)/guardians also have to be involved to assist with skills and development for practices regardless of soccer experience, this is essential for player development (passing and dribbling plays). (It is also fun to connect and build reinforcement with your children on the field and at home).
The U9 & up can register at Bourkevale although each age groups must have approximately 13-15 players per team plus parent volunteers for a coach and assistant coach. Players will be transferred to other Community Clubs if there are insufficient numbers to field a team or lack of parent volunteers to coach and support the team activities (coordinate practices, game coordination and team liaison at games).
All players U9 & up must register as well on the MSA website.
The registration fee structure for the age groups are as follows:
