Developmental Program - Recreation

What is our Developmental Program?

The Developmental Program (Recreation) is designed for beginners to learn the sport of soccer and for youths interested in playing in a less competitive environment. The goal of the program is to improve the quality of soccer being played in Barrow County and to provide opportunities for more children to participate in the sport. The Developmental Program is the starting place for any young soccer player. It is open to boys and girls, ages 4 and up.

The Developmental Program is focused on creating an atmosphere of FUN, LEARNING, and COMMUNITY.  Our goal is for each child to be introduced to the game in a positive manner which will hopefully lead them to fall in love with the game of soccer. Each and every initiative targeted at the Players and Coaches in our Developmental Program is designed to enhance this goal and the player’s individual experience. We also strive to foster a sense of community around the game of soccer. Families and a family atmosphere are integral to our club.  PSA's Developmental Program brings together families from diverse backgrounds to celebrate youth, health, exercise, and our community.

The Developmental Program is offered to all children ages 4 and up.

NO previous playing experience required, NO requirement of advanced skills
 
Each team requires a volunteer coach


U4

Our program is structured and designed specifically for the young player. The philosophy of our program can be summed up in one word- FUN! We have created a safe and positive environment where kids can learn the game of soccer through playful training techniques and team bonding activities. Working with GYSA we have designed a program that encompasses the use of "small-sided games"and age-appropriate training. The combination of these methods will be the foundation to good habits with the ball, leading to mastery of skills.

Rules of Play - HAVE FUN!

U6

The U6 game is designed to maximize the amount of play and "touches" each child gets. Players are encouraged to dribble the ball and not necessarily to pass it. All fouls result in Indirect Kicks. It's a teaching game and, as much, everyone wins.

U8

The U8 game differs from the U6 game in several significant ways. First, referees control the games and coaches stay off the field. Second, this is when both positional play and passing are first introduced. Third, some fouls may result in a Direct Free Kick.

U10

The U10 soccer game is similar to the U8 game with some exceptions: more players are introduced onto the field, which encourages more passing; and, the Offside rule comes into effect. The ball size moves to size 4 and Goal Keepers are introduced.
