Simsbury Soccer Club

U6 FUNdamentals for Boys & Girls

Introduce your child to soccer through a six-week, one-hour clinic facilitated by our professional trainer Ken Akien. The program will take place on Saturday mornings at Henry James Middle School Fields. The program will focus on individual skills and developing a level of comfort with the ball and the game of soccer.

This program is only for children who were born in the year indicated on the right.

Parents are encouraged to help out and coach. Prior to the season there will be a coaching clinic to help parents become more comfortable on the field and understanding the skills being taught at this age group.

Team placement will be announced upon all volunteer positions filled to assist with coaching. Please consider coaching your child's team for this season. It will truly be a rewarding experience for both you and your child.

The program will focus on individual skills and developing a level of comfort with the ball and the game of soccer. Parents are encouraged to volunteer and participate. Players will be divided into "teams" of 6-8 players along with a volunteer parent and assistant.

Each practice will follow a clinic format, where the professional trainer will demonstrate new skills and games for the volunteers to implement with their teams. The trainers will circulate through the teams assisting the volunteers in working with the players.

There will be no competitive games at this level.
