U5 and U6 Fun of Soccer – Indoor Soccer Fun (For all members born in 2013 and 2014)

Did your child enjoy the Fun of Soccer program this Fall? We are excited to share with all of you that the
WSA will run an indoor program specifically set up for our youngest members. Anyone who was part of
the FOS program last Fall can take part in an 8-week indoor soccer program this winter. All weekly
sessions are 50 minutes long and will provide the players with an opportunity to work on their basic ball
skills and to continue the fun. These classes will take place at the Jefferson Elementary School.

Our own FOS program director, John Gardner, will work out a curriculum focused on the basic needs of
our players. A heavy focus will be placed on the development of the basic motor skills, while
incorporating the ball. A mixture of fun games and exercises will be included to help our youngest
members develop a love for the game. The goal of these sessions is to engage the players, help them
become more competent and confident on the ball and most importantly of all, have FUN!

Anyone interested in taking part in these classes can do so by going through the registration part of our
WSA website. Please understand that since these classes will take place inside, that we can only accept a
set number of registrations per hour to ensure a good experience for all players.

Also note that cleats can’t be worn, so participants should be wearing sneakers/flats. It is also
recommended to bring a ball and water.

U7 and U8 Winter Training

For all players born in 2011 and 2012

U7 Winter Training

The U7 winter program is going into its 3rd year and set up for those players born in 2012 looking to
further develop their soccer skills. Anyone interested in taking this class will be exposed to training with
a heavy focus on the ability to control and manipulate the ball. To play soccer successfully one needs to
be able to manipulate the ball, using the different surfaces of both feet. In fun and challenging activities, we
look to provide the players with a lot of touches to help them further develop their ability the master
the ball. A player who can control the ball will not only become more competent, but also more
confident in his or her own ability. The objective is to provide these young players with the opportunity
to make as many decisions possible, on the ball, and find a way to execute these decisions accordingly.

Below all the information about these classes.

Given that these classes take place inside we only have a limited number of spots available.

U8 Winter Training

A winter program specifically designed for the serious soccer player born in 2011 looking to further
develop their soccer skills. Anyone interested in this program can sign up for 1 or both, 6 week sessions,
which both take place at the Westfield Armory this upcoming winter.

The curriculum of this winter program will build upon what the players have been exposed to in training
in the U8 academy or U8 rec during the Fall. During the U8 academy and U8 rec the focus has been
mostly on developing the basic dribbling technique. Dribbling is the foundation on which all other soccer
techniques are build. A player who is capable of controlling the ball will not only be more confident but
can also be taught how and when to pass and/or shoot. For that reason, it is important that players
learn to manipulate the ball using both feet and different surfaces, eventually under pressure of
opponents. Understanding that this takes time and lot of repetition, those players interested in
becoming more comfortable and competent on the ball will most certainly benefit from taking part in
this class.

Below all the information about these classes.

Given that these classes take place inside we only have a limited number of spots available. The trainers
running these classes might divide players up based on their ability, to ensure all receive training that
suits them.

Winter Indoor Programming – Intercounty/ U9 rec players

Rec/Intercounty Players born in 2004-2010

Rec/Intercounty Players born in 2004-2010

The Westfield SA is once again excited to announce the offering of a winter indoor program available for
all our U9-U15 IC/Rec players. These winter programs provide all players in rec and intercounty with an
opportunity to train locally under the guidance of professional trainers assigned by the Westfield SA. All
the training will take place in gyms right in town. The focus will be on the individual skill development
and confidence on the ball of the players taking part in these clinics. It will be an 8-week program
starting on January 8th 2017. All weekly sessions are 1 hour long.

Futsal Training – Players born in 2008, 2009 and 2010

All available sessions are focused on the individual skill development of the participants using the game
of futsal. Futsal is a five-a-side version of soccer that finds its origins in South America. It was originally
designed for youth competition in YMCAs. The game is played on basketball-sized courts, both indoors
and out without the use of sidewalls. The term FUTSAL is the international term used for the game. It is
derived from the Spanish or Portuguese word for “soccer”, FUTbol or FUTebol, and the French or
Spanish word for “indoor”, SALon or SALa.

For young, developing players this is a great way to continue to develop their game and get touches on
the ball. Remember, the main goal for the young soccer player is to improve individual technique while
having fun. Futsal is one of the best “teachers” of the game to provide a fun, learning environment.
All training will take place in small sided settings (1v1 – 2v1 – 2v2) to allow for many repetitions, in a
short amount of time, while forcing players to start thinking just a little quicker.
Please also note that all training will take place in a local gym. Due to this we can only accept a small
number of participants per hour.

All participants are expected to wear indoor shoes / sneakers; bring water and to wear their
shinguards.

Futsal training & game play – For all IC players born 2004 – 2007

This year we are able to offer all our intercounty players born 2004 – 2007 the opportunity to take part
in a futsal class that will include approximately 30 minutes of game play each week.
During the first 30 minutes of each class, players will be given the opportunity to train with a
professional coach. A curriculum will be specifically set up for this class, with an emphasis on improving
the overall decision making of the players. While making sure they are also able to execute these
decisions accordingly.

The 2 nd part of each class will be spend playing, supervised / guided by the professional coach. Players will be
divided at random over teams and take part in several futsal games. The game is played at a different
surface; using a different ball and in smaller numbers. Creating an environment in which players have to
think a lot faster; move a lot more; make decisions a lot faster and execute these decisions at a higher
pace. It is great environment in which you can further develop your ability as a soccer player. Futsal is
used around the world as a means to help improve the overall ability of players. Some of the greatest
players in South America and Southern Europe state that futsal has helped them become the players
they are today.

All training will take place in a local gym. Due to this we can only accept a small number of participants
per hour.

All participants are expected to wear indoor shoes / sneakers; bring water and to wear their
shinguards.
