Our U5 and U6 program will be a holistic introduction to both soccer and physical activity. Programming will focus on having fun and learning grassroots physical literacy and soccer skills. These boys and girls are our future stars who want a great first soccer experience, leading to long-term enjoyment playing the beautiful game with the Ottawa Gloucester Hornets. Lots of playing time, lots of touches, and lots of FUN!

ACTIVE START - Long Term Player Development

Players will learn proper fundamental movement skills like running, jumping, twisting and catching. Emphasis will also be placed on the ‘player and the ball’ ­– dribbling, controlling and kicking. The program stresses the love of the game through informal play and positive reinforcement. While skills are important, high fives and goal celebrations are encouraged!

What do I need to play?

The summer sessions will be played outdoors, rain or shine. We only cancel a session if the fields are in poor condition, the city closes fields, or if weather conditions are dangerous. Each child should have the following:

  • Indoor soccer shoes for gym sessions;
  • Cleats for use in dome and on outdoor field;
  • Shin pads;
  • Socks, shorts & Hornets t-shirt;
  • A water bottle;
  • A size 3 or 4  soccer ball (optional);
  • Someone to provide high fives at water breaks!
