The Pee Wee Program (U4 to U6) is an 8 week program on Saturday mornings in the Fall and Spring seasons.
 
The Pee Wee schedule for Fall 2018 will be as follows:
U5:  8:30 AM
U4: 10:00 AM
U6:  11:15 AM

The sessions are divided into two components: A training phase and a game phase. During the first 30 minutes, the children will be led through fun, individually-focused, development based games by volunteer coaches. Coaches will then lead their teams through a 30-minute, 3v3 game against another team.
 
The training component consists of age-appropriate games focused on exposing the players to fundamental soccer techniques in a fun, safe environment. During the training, parents will have the opportunity to participate. It is not too strenuous and is quite fun.  The model for the games is 1 player/ 1 ball.
 
The 3v3 game phase is just that – a fun game! There are no goalies, and the kids are not allowed to use their hands in the games. Coaches monitor the kids and the game to ensure safety and equal playing time.
 
Scores are not recorded, and no standings are kept. The emphasis is on using a soccer game to create a fun, safe, physically active environment.  The goal of the program is for all kids to want to come back and play again the next week and for parents to enjoy watching and helping the kids in our community enjoy their soccer experience.

Saturday Sessions (U4)
This program serves as an introduction to the U5-U6 Program and is focused more on play, motor skill development, following directions, 
often involving the soccer ball as part of the game.  
 
Parents are often involved in the games, both easing the player into the session and often because the players at this age want to play with their parents.  The games often use hoops, cones of many colors and size, pool noodles, etc.  Sessions last 45 minutes.
 
Uniforms, Equipment, and Safety
Players will receive PASC uniforms (jersey, shorts, socks). Coaches will receive the player T-shirts at the Coaches’ Meeting and will distribute them at the field on the first Saturday. The children can slip their shirts on over what they are wearing when they meet their team and coach.
 
For safety reasons, all children MUST have shin guards. Soccer cleats are not required but are recommended. These items are generally available in any sporting goods store, including our club partner, Angelo’s Soccer Corner (www.soccercorner.com).
 
The Pee Wee Age Group plays with a size 3 ball. PASC will provide balls for Saturday sessions. PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR SOCCER BALLS TO THE FIELD.
 
PLAYERS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO BRING A WATER BOTTLE TO THE FIELD. Water (rather than sports drinks) is critical for hydration, and the players will be sweating plenty.
 
Coaching
Volunteer parent coaches are vital to the success of the program. All that coaching requires is a positive attitude and a desire to have fun with kids.  If you are interested in helping with a team, please check the indicator box when registering your child. You may also contact our Pee Wee Coordinator ([email protected])
 
Support
Parents are encouraged to provide encouragement and cheer for all players.  We want all the kids (even the other team's players) to have a great time and safe environment to play. Cheering all the goals is appropriate.
 
The space between the playing fields is for the coaches and the players.  Parents are asked to stand on the far sidelines of the field, at least 5 yards back. The fields are small (30 x 20 yards) so you will be able to see all of their great plays quite easily.
 
We encourage you to encourage your children. However, we ask that you do so in a positive and gentle voice. The players are already struggling with new shoes, shin guards, an uneven surface, a moving ball, moving players, and fatigue. It will be very difficult for them to process other instruction as it is. The experience of playing the game will be the best coach they have.  If they aren't doing something that works, they will learn that (usually pretty quickly) on their own.
 
Enjoy watching and cheering all of the kids as they learn and enjoy playing soccer, the game for all kids!
