Specific Times for Each Age Group – Please Read Carefully
The first few weeks of September provides the Club an opportunity to assess Developmental Program players and set balanced teams and schedules. On September 16 and September 23, AYSC’s Club coaches will be running station-based “skills and drills” with all players and volunteer Team Leaders.
Players will be assigned a team at the end of September, and a formal game schedule will be released at that time.
Developmental age group times FOR THE FIRST SATURDAY are as follows:
- Date: Saturday September 16, 2023
- Location: Aldergrove Athletic Park (AAP), behind Betty Gilbert Middle School – view Google map
- 8:15 am – 9:15 am U5/U6 (EAST TURF)
- 9:30 am – 10:30 am U7/U8 (EAST TURF)
- 10:45 am – 11:45 am U9/U10 (EAST TURF)
PLEASE ENSURE YOU COME TO THE FIELD FOR THE CORRECT TIME FOR YOUR AGE GROUP ON SATURDAY. Bring water and either cleats or runners and water.
There are NO U5 to U10 Developmental Program weeknight sessions this week. Weeknight Developmental sessions will start the week of September 18. Please see U5 to U10 Developmental Program on the Fall registration page of our website for general information on weeknight split practice / games and Saturday games for each age group.
AYSC needs volunteers to step forward to be Team Leaders / Coaches before we can organize teams and schedules.
Many feel they do not have enough experience or skill to coach, but the truth is that at the younger ages the primary responsibility is to help players develop very basic skills (dribbling, shooting, passing etc.) and ensure they have FUN!
This year we have added several additional individuals to our roster of Club Coaches so that we can provide more support to our volunteers, to ensure they enjoy the experience and want to continue being involved with their player’s soccer journey.
Please consider volunteering to be a team leader ASAP by visiting https://www.aldergrovesoccer.com/volunteer/. If you have already submitted AYSC’s volunteer form, thank you!
