Juniors

Igniting the

Passion

Led by our Juniors and Recreational Program Coordinator, Adam Neylon, the program has been retooled from the ground up to better support each player’s enjoyment and development in the game.  Like all of our programs, our Juniors program incorporates the advice of our experts to establish fundamentals, instill a passion for the game, and set a basis for future success. Our 4U-8U players learn the sport through a fun, nurturing, and engaging progression of activities that improves coordination, soccer skill, and knowledge of the game. If your son or daughter is 3 to 7 years old, this is the program for you.

Registration will remain open until programs have reached capacity. 

4U Explorers
PSU’s Explorers program includes 5 weekly sessions in both the spring and the fall led by our Explorers Program Director and supported by parents. In this program, players engage in a variety of fun games that include running, jumping, hopping, rolling, and skipping – all while taking care of the soccer ball. In this way, players develop self-confidence, increase their physical abilities, develop new motor skills, and improve their balance – all with the soccer ball at their feet. We keep our Explorers constantly in motion using a large area that allows them to go full-speed without worrying about other players around them. This approach helps players grow in both love and respect for the ball while also teaching them spatial awareness.

We stress a non-competitive environment for our Explorers where we promote fun and enjoyment above all else.

 

5U & 6U Micros
Our Micros program includes 5 weeks of one-hour, group sessions in both the spring and the fall. Each session is led by our Micros Program Director and supported by parent helpers.

Players at these ages love to play with mom and dad and our approach is designed around this interaction, creating lifelong memories for both parents and player. Our curriculum is built on proven techniques that use various games to help players develop strong fundamentals. Parent helpers are provided with an online curriculum accessible via their mobile phone, allowing them to guide players during the weekly sessions. Through the program, players learn essential skills that set them up for the rest of their soccer journey:

  • Dribbling in a straight line using their laces
  • Turning with both the inside and outside of the foot
  • Using the sole of the foot to protect the ball
  • Passing the ball with the inside of their foot
  • Striking the ball to into the goal

Players then use these skills to play various games, now with the ball at their feet, helping them develop a love of the ball and teaching them how to navigate the game. Players in our Micros program have a blast, starting them on the path toward a lifelong passion for the beautiful game.

U7 & U8 Juniors
Our Juniors begin their week on Mondays in both the fall and spring seasons with group training, led by our Juniors Coordinator and supported by parent coaches. Players then move on to their team training run by their parent coach on a different night of the week (chosen by their coach). Their week ends with a game on Saturday led by their coach.

All Juniors coaches are provided with PSU’s training curriculum app, ensuring players learn individual skills and team tactics through proven methodologies in a positive, nurturing environment. The focus remains strongly on fun, sportsmanship and the basic fundamentals of the game. In addition to growing their skill and passion for the game, players engage in healthy competition, helping players become familiar with the high demands of the game. This approach provides players with an ideal environment for future success in soccer.

The program is designed to provide players with a fun and enjoyable soccer experience. As such, every player in the program is expected to:

  • Exhibit a positive, can-do attitude
  • Be respectful of coaches and teammates
  • Try hard and put good effort into each practice and every game
  • Engage actively with coaches and teammates

Registration will remain open until programs have reached capacity.

Determining "U" Level

street soccer

In our Street Soccer program, players have the opportunity to create their own teams, make their own calls, and unconsciously develop their technical and tactical awareness–all while expressing themselves with the ball at their feet. We believe players should be able to manage themselves and have the freedom to play, interact, problem-solve, innovate, and take ownership of their participation in the game. Teams are created the day of to promote diversity, and games are played without referees to reinforce positive conflict resolution techniques. Our I-Mentor coaches will supervise each field making sure that players and facilities are safe while maintaining a fun and challenging environment.

PSU’s Street Soccer is open to all 9U to 19U players. Our Old School Street Soccer is open to any parent, soccer coach, and their significant others. Bring the whole family!
