Sprouts (U6 - U8)
The Concorde Fire Sprouts program is an exceptional co-ed soccer program for children in the U6 and U8 age groups (ages 4 to 7 ½). The Sprouts program provides high-quality professional coaching and instruction, and concentrates on providing young players with a solid grounding in basic soccer technical skills. There are no tryouts for the Sprouts program. All interested players may register on a space-available basis. Because we understand that many young players have other interests which may preclude year-round participation, players may sign up for one season without committing to a full year.
- The U6 program meets once a week at Ridgeview Middle School. Each session features skill training and agility training in a fun and instructive environment suitable to this age group. Players are also divided into teams for 3 v 3 small-sided games (no goalkeepers) before and after the skill-building portion of the session.
- The U8 program meets twice a week at Ridgeview Middle School as well as State Bridge Crossing Elementary School. As with the U6 program, one U8 session will include skill training and agility training as well as an opportunity play small-sided games. The other session will be set up as a round-robin of games in a 6 v 6 or 8 v 8 format on a larger field. While the emphasis is still on personal skill development, the players begin to get a feel for the bigger pitch, and the coaches can begin to incorporate the idea of field positioning.
