U4 Outdoor House League Friday
The U4 Outdoor House League is an instructional curriculum based league, aimed for ages 3 (by 5/17/13, the first night of house league) and 4 year old's. Volunteer coaches are needed for these age groups. Each team will need a volunteer coach (usually 10-12 coaches) to run the practices and games. These age groups will have house coordinators to help. Coordinators are experienced high school and college aged players that have proven to work well with children.
If you would like to volunteer, please state that you would like to volunteer in your account (upper right corner of website). We will be hosting a FREE Youth Module for those coaches that would like to learn more about how to properly run a practice and manage a game. If you have questions in regards to coaching a team this summer, contact Kris Eckert at email@example.com.These age groups follow USYSA recommended 25 minutes of instruction followed by 20 min for small sided games. Teams will be determined before the start of the season.
This age group is the beginning. Our curriculum is focuses on fundamental movement skills (dribbling, basic shooting, balance, running, jumping, movement education) and start to introduce overall motor skills:
Dribbling with both feet
Dribbling with our head up
Dribbling in control, no kicking
Soft first touch
Stopping the ball with our feet
No kicking allowed except when shooting on goal
All groups will start with 10 minutes of story-based foot skills, followed by about 15 minutes of fun skill games. The final 20 minutes are set for 1v1, 2v2 and 3v3 games. The 1v1 model allows each player to have more touches on the ball and also provides a more entertaining game for the spectators.
