U7-U8 FUNdamentals

These weekday sessions are specifically geared for boys and girls born in 2011 and 2010.  All sessions will be hosted at Bechtel Park outdoor facilities.

This program aligns with Ontario Soccer’s FUNdamentals program. The sessions will be lead by Parent volunteers and supported with Skill Instructors under the leadership of the Technical Director. At this stage, coaches and teachers should create a stimulating learning environment where the atmosphere is “Freedom and Fun.”

2018 OUTDOOR RECREATIONAL CURRICULUM
Session One Session Two
Session Three Session Four
Session Five Session Six 
Session Seven Session Eight
Session Nine

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
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. This includes gaining ball control in receiving passes, dribbling, passing less than 25m, kicking the ball forward, and shooting on goal.

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.

Waterloo United encourages children to continue to participate in a variety of additional activities. Swimming and well-structured gymnastics programs are recommended, along with ball sports
