The Micros Program is the second level of play for kids starting into soccer. For the Fall of 2022, it is open to players that will be 4, 5 or 6 as of 12/31/2023.
Our emphasis is to provide a fun environment in which players can be learn the skills necessary for them to continue to enjoy the sport of soccer in coming years. Competition is de-emphasized. In fact there are no league at this age group, just learning and fun.
Each player will be provided with a clinic shirt. For the approximately the first 30 minutes, the kids will practice skills and play fun games taught by the Professional Coaches from Victory Soccer School.
For the remaining 15 minutes, the players will be split into teams to play small-sided games.
Due to Covid-19, we are going to limit the amount of parents around the players. Parents are always welcome to help us with little things such as getting kids in place, retrieving errant soccer balls, attending to knocks and bumps, but we will have to keep our social distancing requirements and limit the amount of adults.
Registrations are open almost the whole season, and trials are welcome - give it a try, if the child wants to continue, then you can register. We realize that at the young ages it is scary, so don't feel compelled to make the decision without trying.
Times will be Saturday Mornings at 9:00 - 9:45 or 10:00 - 10:45 at Gillis Field (Talmadge Park). The times for each player will be determined once we get closer to the start of the season as we will divide players by the ages (younger ages at 9, older ages at 10). To keep the groups about even, the split of ages will be determined near the start of the season.
Your child needs to bring shin guards (wear underneath socks), proper shoes (cleats preferred if wet field), and a drink. We will supply soccer balls while quite small (special order), they are there. It is a good idea for them to have a ball at home to practice with. Our soccer balls that we use at this age are #3 soccer balls.
