First Kicks U4-U8
Developing passion for the game and love of the ball.
Vancouver United FC's philosophy for the Active Start Program is to develop PASSION FOR THE GAME and LOVE OF THE BALL. This program is based on the Canadian Soccer Association Long Term Player Development Pathway. The focus is on fun, physical literacy (learning fundamental movement skills), and soccer skill development. This is a parent-engagement program, so parents actively participate at U4 and U5 and are asked to remain on site at U6 to U8. The program runs in the Fall/Winter (combined for U6-U18, separate registrations for U4 and U5) and Spring.
