Summer 2023 Programs 

We are happy to announce the details of the 2023 Soccer 4 Fun program. It will be a 10 week program starting June 19th. This program will be for children born in the years 2010-2020.

Jersey Night - Jerseys will be issued at the first few sessions at the field upon arrival.

We Need Parent Volunteers for U5 to U8 Game Leader Roles, and U10 and U13 Manager Roles. No prior soccer experience necessary. U5 to U8 Game Leaders assist our coaches and supervise small sided games for  U5 to U8   age groups. To promote active participation we operate a multitude of games simultaneously and so need volunteers to help supervise those game fields. U10 & U13 Parent Team Managers are there to help our staff coaches to run the games, for example supervising player rotations/substitutions.

Detailed Program Descriptions

"TOTS" Program Description

for U3/U4 Combined Session Length (30 minutes)

Please note TOTS is a Parent & Child Program - We have morning and evening options to fit your schedule. As the children are at the introductory level parents are integrated to participate in an interactive way to help their children to understand the simple activities and offering a guiding hand to encourage their participation. Each session will include three or four Fun Activities which will be led by our trained instructors. 

What to Bring - Tots do not require any soccer specific footwear or shinpads. You will be provided with a Jersey and shorts and socks. We request that players wear their Jersey (underlayers may be necessary for outdoor programs). Players should have water available for regular water breaks throughout the session.

"FUNdamentals" Program Description

for U5/U6/U7/U8 Session Length (45 minutes) 

Fun Activities & Small Sided Games supervised by Game Leaders. Our goal with our "Move Touch Play" philosophy is that every child is active for the entire time, enhancing their overall experience. This is beneficial for skill development as well as physical health.
For Small Sided Games we employ a flexible approach to creating teams to limit the need for players sitting on the bench. Players will be assigned a team colour but when they play their SSG's they will be on a team with different players from one session to the next. Due to this flexible approach to games team requests are not considered for these age groups. All players within an age group will be located at the same field so carpooling will not be a problem regardless of team assignments. In exceptional circumstances we may consider a team request, contact kbutton@pysa.ca.
This program is based on the CSA LTPD Model Fundamentals stage for players aged 5-8 years old. Players will be divided into small groups and work with an instructor who will lead then though Fun Activity Games and then progress into dividing the players into teams to play small sided games or scrimmages which are overseen by Game Leaders (could be an instructor or volunteer parent).

What to Bring - Players should wear shin pads. Soccer Cleats are recommended for outdoors as fields can be slippery when wet.. You will be provided with a Jersey and shorts and socks. We request that players wear their Jersey (under layers may be necessary for outdoor programs). Players should have water available for regular water breaks throughout the session.

"REC League" Program Description 

for U10 / U13  Session Length (60 minutes) 

Our Rec Leagues for Under 10 - Under 13 offer a child friendly approach to competition - see Information Package for more details. Teams will warm up first and then play a game against another team. For U10 game length is 40 minutes (two 20 minute halves). The Under 9 Warm Up will also include a Fun Activity. For U13 game length is 50 minutes (two 25 minute halves).

What to Bring - Players must wear shin pads & soccer cleats. You will be provided with a Jersey. We request that players wear their Jersey (under layers may be necessary for outdoor programs). Players should have water available for regular water breaks throughout the session.
