Many of the world’s top players – including De Bruyne, Lukaku, Hazard, Courtois – emerged from the innovative player development model in Belgium. The youngest players honed their individual dribbling and defending skills in a 1v1 format. Borrowing from this system, Soccer Roots will conduct a 1v1 “league” in which 5- and 6-year-olds can enjoy the feel of competition and being part of a team, while developing their skills. Players will be placed onto 3-member teams, and each player will compete in shifts over the course of each 50-minute match. No scores or standings will be kept.
Note: this league requires parent volunteers! Each week, the Soccer Roots values of Fair Play, Sportsmanship, and Fun will be supplemented one basic coaching point, to be emphasized throughout the match.

10:00 - 11:00am
