Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd Grade Soccer - Fall 2020 plans

Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grade players will play on Saturday afternoons at Bird Middle School (from Sep 12th until Nov 14th) and Grade 1 and Grade 2 players will also have midweek evening practices (on Tues, Wed and Thu evenings) at Fisher Field. The midweek program is will start in early September. Please note the times below may be adjusted depending on EEE health concerns.

The INTown program consists largely of skills clinics supervised by professional coaches, followed by games. These are the expected times for each group:
..
Saturday sessions (Sep 12th, 19th, 26th, Oct 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st, Nov 7th & 14th)
1st grade Girls & Boys 12:00pm-1.00pm (teams will be separated by gender)
Kindergarten (coed) 1.30pm -2.30pm
2nd grade Girls & Boys 3pm - 4pm (teams will be separated by gender)
...
In addition, there will be Midweek skills clinics at Fisher Field:

2nd Grade; Tuesdays (Sep 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th & Oct 6th)
Girls 5-6pm
Boys 6-7pm

3rd Grade; Wednesdays (Sep 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th and Oct 7th)
Girls 5-6pm
Boys 6-7pm

1st Grade; Thursdays (Sep 10th, 17th, 24th, Oct 1st & 8th)
Girls 5-6pm
Boys 6-7pm

The midweek sessions run for 4-5 weeks and are designed to give your players more opportunity to develop their skills under the supervision of professional coaches, at an earlier age. They will be more position-specific, station-based training; allowing kids to learn the nuances of playing as a striker, midfielder, defender and even goalkeeping.

Each week your player should bring;
1. their shirt (Kindergartners receive a shirt to keep week 1, while 1st & 2nd grade players receive a reversible shirt on week 1 that 'must be returned at end of the season')
2. cleats
3. shin pads
4. size 3 ball (K players will receive a ball on week 1, 1st & 2nd grade players are to bring their own ball) which should have their name written on it
5. re-useable water bottle (with name written on it!)

Please check the website each week before heading to the fields for weather or field updates.

Volunteer (parent) coaches are always welcome and asked to arrive 30 mins early each week. They will be provided an itinerary and demonstration by one of our professional coaches, who will remain throughout the entire session to step in and assist. No playing experience is necessary to be a successful volunteer coach. You will also enjoy a significant discount for future player registration.
