Active Start

Active Start (U4 & U5) 

Soccer contributes to the well-being of children by engaging them in the sport while teaching them basic movements.   At this introductory stage, players will participate in stimulating games that develop basic technical skills in a FUN atmosphere. The emphasis will be movement exercises and games that promote a feel for the ball while teaching basic principles of play within a fun but structured setting. 

  • Physical – Provide the environment for learning proper fundamental movement skills such as running, jumping, twisting, kicking, throwing and catching. 
  • Technical – The player and the ball: Running with the ball, dribbling, controlling, kicking and shooting. 
  • Tactical – None. 
  • Mental – Fun, fascination, and passion for play.

Notes: 

Full participation by one adult per child is required. In the case of two siblings, one adult for both is fine.    

Players must be born between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2018 to register. Exceptions to this may be granted on request (coastsoccer@gmail.com). While some children are able to participate fully in coordinated activities such as this (each activity lasts about 10 minutes), others find it difficult.  

If your child is born between September 18th, 2018 and December 31st, 2018, registration is conditional to a guardian of this child attending an Active Start Coaching Course, and helping to coach their child’s team. At this time, due to Covid, we are not able to offer an in-person course, however, BC Soccer is providing an online theory portion (for free) that can be taken.
