Players born in 2013
Our U8 FUNdamentals program involves a blend of skills training & game play at their soccer event. Players will be able to enjoy playing within a team while developing their own individual skills.
This model is the best way for us to adapt our offerings and allow flexibility for families to determine the best fit for them.
