U7 - U8 Recreational Soccer

U7 - U8 Recreational Soccer

Program Overview

Enjoyment and player development join together in fun skills practices and soccer-style games focused on maximizing the time each player has with the ball.

All players are placed on teams of up to eight players and meet once or twice per week, depending on the availability of the head coach, beginning early or mid-August through the end of October for training with the team’s volunteer head coach, and also play 10 league games on weekends starting the Saturday following Labor Day.

All U7-U8 teams are assigned an available practice field in the general area of the head coach. Each team is allotted 60-minute practice sessions. Volunteer coaches are asked to focus on coordination and individual skill development during the practice sessions. The weekend games are formatted into small-sided 5v5 games (4 field players + a goalkeeper) which consist of two 20-minute halves. Volunteer coaches are designated to run the weekly practices and supervise the weekend games for their respective teams. All games are held at Pine Valley Middle School: 3000 Pine Valley Road, San Ramon CA 94583.

Coaching

Coaches are selected by the Development Director from parent volunteers who express interest. Volunteering to coach offers a rewarding opportunity to work with children and build their skills and self-esteem. All coaches and assistant coaches are required to register for the club and to get fingerprinted for a background check (Get Disclosure Form**). SRFC provides support to volunteer coaches by providing coaching curriculum handouts and free coaching clinics beginning in August.

Team Formation

U7-U8 recreational teams are formed in late July and players are assigned to teams by the San Ramon FC staff.

Coaches will notify players of their team placement by early August.
