Our U7 & U8 program follows the Soccer Canada Skills Centre Model. The Skills Centre Model aims to provide access for all players to a high-quality program where they can have fun with their friends, learn new skills, and play in an appropriate format. U7 and U8 players practice together based on age and gender. Coaches will split players into small groups and each group will rotate through stations participating in fun games and activities.
U7 and U8 players also have the option of participating in Skills Centre Festivals one day on the weekend where teams get to play games against other Clubs. Festivals typically include 2 games and are held every second weekend.
U7 and U8 players practice twice a week in the evening. The exact days are to be confirmed. The practice schedule will be finalized upon confirmation of facility and coach availability. The practice schedule will be posted on the Storm website / social media as soon as it's finalized.
Practices start the second week of October 2021 and run until the last week of February 2022. There is a two week break December 18 through January 2.
Practice locations are to be confirmed but they will be held locally in Dartmouth.
U7/U8 players can participate in Skills Centre Festivals. Festivals are held on alternating Saturdays where teams play 2 games. U7/U8 Skills Centre Festivals play 5v5.
U7/U8 Skills Centre Festivals days are scheduled for: November 6 & 20, December 4 and 18, January 15 and 29, as well as February 12 and 26.
