U7/U8 Saturdays 10-11 am Taugwonk Field (optional add-on games)

Stage 1: Me & My Ball

Training sessions for this age group are 1x a week for 45 minutes, as recommended by US Soccer. 

At the first stage in the Junior Sharks program, the focus is on the individual player to use his/her imagination to become creators and inventors.

Consequently, fun activities are the primary focus as we introduce the ABCs (agility, balance, coordination and speed) No attention will be placed on tactics, team shape, or positions at this age. Small-sided games will never exceed the 3v3 format. SSC wants all players to love the game, and we begin with the foundations of soccer skills in this creative, play-based format as appropriate for their young ages.

The fall 2021 program will run on Saturday mornings and includes training at Taugwonk Field (1x week) plus a SSC Jr. Sharks uniform t-shirt. Covid safety guidelines will be in effect and clearly communicated to families before the session begins.

Fee: $85,  Saturdays at Taugwonk Field, Stonington
Session begins Saturday, September 11th for eight weeks, weather dependent.

Stage 2: Me & My Teammates

Program includes training and games. Sessions in fall 2021 will be 2x a week. Tuesdays will be 60 minutes of technical training; Saturday mornings will be in-house league games.  Both sessions will be in Stonington at Taugwonk Field.

During this second stage in the Junior Sharks program, training sessions will add some complexity and introduce activities in pairs or small groups to promote communication, cooperation, and teamwork. ABCs work will be similar to Stage I, but will include more advanced agility, eye-foot and eye-hand coordination activities.

Since programming for this age group includes games, attention will be given to team principles of 4v4. The primary focus will be to teach the proper attacking and defending principles of play, both individually and with teammates. The attacking principles include penetration, width, support, off-the-ball movement, and finishing. Defending principles include pressure, cover, and team shape

The fall 2021 program will run on Saturday mornings and includes training at Taugwonk Field (1x week) plus a SSC Jr. Sharks uniform t-shirt. Covid safety guidelines will be in effect and clearly communicated to families before the session begins.

Fee: $125,  Saturdays at Taugwonk Field, Stonington
Session begins Saturday, September 11th for eight weeks, weather dependent.
Note: Based on feedback, we have added games to Saturday mornings. Registration will show a fee of $85, and cannot be changed once we have opened registration--we will send you a payment link if you would like to add the Saturday games.
