VANU SUNDAY SKILLS CENTRE

(Saturday Skills Centre for U11 & U12 Girls)

As our club continues to look to provide the best development opportunities for members of all ages, we are pleased to announce program details for the Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 “VanU Sunday Skills Centre” . Thanks to a great Pilot program that we ran in 2020, will be expanding to include our u8 through to u12 age groups.

As a CSA Club Licence holder (one of 59 in the country: https://www.canadasoccer.com/play-landing/club-licensing-program/national-youth-club-licence-holders/) our club is excited about being able to offer our players an environment which will allow them to discover and fall in love with the game of soccer. Within this program, we will be offering a blend of “invited” and “open registration” opportunities to players who will take part in the programming together. Covid-19 and PHO rules and regulations will be taken very seriously, but having the ability to offer an equal opportunity program to both “invited” players and any player that is interested in this training environment (on a first come, first serve basis) is something that we are absolutely committed to.

In addition to the training programming (which will take place on Sundays from October 2021 into March of 2022) we will also be offering a competition outlet where players can take part in games at various points throughout the season (additional fees apply). Of note; our u11 & u12 girls will have their programming take place on Saturdays to avoid conflict with their league games.

The training curriculum, overall environment and program expectations for the players and all other pertinent programming details will be managed by our Senior Technical Staff (Technical Programs Manager and the age group Technical Leads) under the guidance of the Technical Director of the club.

The session plans will utilize a “whole - part - whole” or “Game - Activity - Game” format and work through topics within a Game Based Learning Model, built upon the guiding principles of our clubs Game Model.
