Futures Program

The Avonworth Soccer Association offers our Futures program starting at the U5 age to expose children to the sport of soccer and begin developing the fundamental foot skills. Our players will play within our Futures program in two different age brackets; U5 and U6 will play in our U6 program while our U7 and U8 players will play in our U8 program.

The U6 program has one session on Saturday mornings that is a combined practice and game.  Teams will spend roughly 40 minutes focusing on development skills and foot work before finish with a 20-minute game of 3v3 or 4v4.  U6 players can optionally participate in a soccer clinic one night per week.  These clinics focus on a particular skill or reinforcement.  These sessions are not broken out into teams.  The entire group practices together as one large group as the ball skills are designed generally for individuals.

The U8 program has one sixty-minute evening practice each week along with playing a game on Saturday mornings. Practices for this group focus heavily on foot skill development in order to continue to develop the fundamentals needed to succeed as a soccer player.  Games will be 4v4 without goalies and the season will end with a tournament!

The curriculum for our Futures programs is modeled after the US Soccer Developmental Program and is approved by our Director of Coaching. For all sessions each player should bring a soccer ball, filled water bottle, soccer shoes and shin guards.  Our focus is ensuring that all kids spend practice with a ball at their feet and not in lines waiting.  There is lots of ball touches and lots of fun for this group!
