Juniors (Recreation) - Fall 2020

The Blythewood Soccer Juniors developmental program is an in-house (non-travel) program for players ages 4 to 14 (Born in 2007-2016).  

Each team will train one day a week for eight weeks with a professional trained background checked coach from Coerver Coaching that specializes in working on age appropriate technical training.  Doing this helps ensure all players get the quality technical skills training needed to be successful as they move into older age groups.

At the older age groups teams will also have the option of a second training with a parent coach if they choose.  So if you are a parent that would like to help please volunteer as a team manager/coach.

This fun program that will feature games Friday evenings freeing up families to enjoy their weekends or allow the player to play other sports or watch their older sibling games.  A parent manager/coach along with club staff and volunteers will help facilitate these games.   All families are highly encouraged to attend and cheer on the players.  Typically players have at least 6 games (8 if no rainouts).

Games will be small sided games (3v3,4v4 or 5v5) that maximize player touches and challenge players against similar leveled competition.  These are fun spirited contest that the kids and parents will enjoy.  Focus will be on allowing the players to show off the skills they are learning on training and less on simply scoring.
