What is it?
Mini Soccer at HVCC is one of the many outdoor programs which offer a safe and supportive environment for young players to play and learn the game of soccer.
Mini Soccer, compared to youth soccer, is comprised of smaller co-ed teams, a smaller field, age appropriate drills and practices, an easy-to-understand introduction to the rules of the game, and lots of opportunities for contact with the ball.
3 – 4 yrs of age
At this age our ‘micro – soccer’ teams have the smallest nets and team sizes to ensure fair play for all. The children are encouraged to participate, and gain a very basic knowledge of skills and rules. The primary emphasis is on having fun and on learning how to be part of a team.
5 – 6 yrs of age
At this age group, our ‘mini – soccer’ players continue skill development in a fun and supportive environment. At this level the kids learn to respect the rules of the game, their coaches, teammates and opponents. A short practice of fun games and drills precedes each game and will introduce some new skills.
7 – 8 yrs of age
At this point children should compete fairly, within the spirit and rules of the game, and show respect for all those involved. Winning is not the most important factor at these developmental stages; having fun and showing effort, determination and a positive attitude is. As well, because this begins an introduction to more competitive soccer, this age group transitions to larger fields, larger team sizes and full sized nets. New skills are introduced and developed and there is an expectation that by the time they play their second year at this level, they will be prepared for a competitive league at the age of age nine (should they choose to continue with soccer).
