Learn to Train (U9-U12)

These Saturday morning programs are designed for boys and girls born in 2009 through to 2006. These divisions play 5 aside games with goalkeepers and referees.

This program aligns with Ontario Soccer’s Learn to Train program and is supervised by WMSC’s Technical Staff. Parent volunteers are needed to coach at these ages. The Club will provide 4 Club Led coaching sessions by our qualified technical staff throughout the season at the U9/10 age group.

Learning to read the movements going on around them are critical skills to be developed at this age. Playing small-sided games can develop players’ ability to read what other players are going to do based on their movements. Let your players make decisions, expose them to working out problems and coming up with solutions.

Playing situations work best for teaching understanding and building basic game sense.
