Program Description:

Option #1: U9 (Program Fee $240)

U9 players practice twice a week on weekday evenings. They also have one game per week in the Nova Scotia Soccer League (NSSL)usually on weekends. The NSSL game schedule will not be released until the start of the game season, which begins at the end of May. U9 players must attend placement sessions to be assessed. They may also participate in tournaments throughout the summer season if there is enough interest from the team. 

Option #2: U10 Community (Program Fee $150)

U10 Community is a great choice for players who are new to soccer, or players who want to develop their skills in a recreational environment, or those who have other commitments in the summer. Players practice twice a week on weekday evenings until games begin. They then have one practice and one game per week in a "House League" with teams from other regional Clubs. Community players are also asked to attend placement sessions. 

 

Program Start / Finish:

Both U9 and U10 Community players begin practicing indoors in the second week of May. Our first week of outdoor practices begin the week of June 3rd, 2019. Summer season runs until the second last week of August. (August 19th - 23rd)

 

Practice Schedule:

The season practice schedule for any team will not be finalized until a few weeks prior to the start of season. The schedule depends on several factors; coach availablilty, number of teams and field allocation. The practice schedule will be posted on the Storm website / social media as soon as it's finalized.

 

Practice location:

Our home field of Eric Graves Field

 

Parents to provide:

Placement Sessions:

U9 players must attend placement sessions. Similarly U10 Community players are also asked to attend placement sessions. Placement sessions are typically only one hour in duration and take place over one or two of the scheduled nights. Placement sessions are an opportunity for our Coaches to assess players and ensure that they are placed on the appropriate team.   There is a $10 placement fee payable by cash or cheque at the first placement session for each player. This fee is used to help cover the cost of the turf for our placement sessions. Players will only receive their numbered pinnie upon payment of the placement fee. The placement schedule has not been finalized, but the sessions will take place at Newbridge Academy  on the following dates from 6pm - 9pm:
