Cocalico Youth Soccer Club

U8 Program

Cocalico Youth Soccer Club's U8 Program provides players aged 6 and 7 the opportunity to develop their skills in a progressive program against other CYSC U8 teams. This program teaches the fundamentals of soccer the players will need as they progress through the Club's age groups. Players will play 4v4 small-sided games to demonstrate their newly-developed skills. At this age, the focus is on having fun and developing fundamental ball skills, not on the competitive aspects of the game. The season is typically 8 weeks long and runs April to May in the Spring and September to October in the Fall. Games are held on Saturday mornings at the Cocalico High School soccer fields. Two one-hour practices are held during the week on days selected by the volunteer parent coach (a great way to select your child's practice night is to become a volunteer coach - training and materials are provided). Please make sure your child brings a size 3 soccer ball, cleats (sneakers OK but not preferred), shin guards, and water to all games and practices. Uniforms are purchased separate from the registration fee.
