U7 – 8 PROGRAM

 

Description

During early ages, players join WCFC at many different stages of development. With the influx of players from different backgrounds, children can have similar abilities across several age groups while they gain experience and teaching within the program. Players are treated individually with mastery of the ball and body being the main focuses.

Teams will be coached by volunteer parents following curriculum developed by WCFC.  Volunteer coaches will be under the supervision of the Academy Director. Full support is given to each coach including several preseason clinics, videos and practice plans.
