Our U7-U8 FUNdamentals builds on the physical literacy elements of our Active Start program and introduces technical skills such as running with the ball, dribbling, passing and shooting!

Aligned with Canada Soccer’s LTPD, the Hornets FUNdamentals programming is the first step in our player pathway.  Here our players will develop strong technical skills including ball mastery and athletic skills with a focus on FUN - in a positive and energetic environment.

FUNDAMENTALS - Long Term Player Development

Players develop the ABCS: agility, balance, coordination, and speed. The ‘player and the ball’ will further develop the technical abilities of players – dribbling, gaining ball control in passing, passing less than 25m, kicking the ball forward and shooting.  Coaches will create an environment that emphasizes ‘freedom and fun’ in the development of physical and technical skills.

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!
