Aligned to the CS Long Term Player Development guidelines for Active Start (U4 to U6),the TOTs U4/U5 program teaches age specific physical literacy and soccer technical skills through fun oriented exercises and small sided games. Through these exercises and games, Players develop the necessary fundamental movement skills that will provide the foundation for learning fundamental sports skills at older ages.
For U4-U5, Parents are expected to participate in each session guiding and playing with their child during the program content. The program will be delivered using a best practice station based teaching methodology whereby the Child and Parent will be assembled into small manageable groups and assigned to start at a specific station. The Child-Parent groups will then rotate through the stations during the session. The program content and details outlined below will be led by a TOTs Staff Coach with Coaching Assistants.
