Recreation Program Summary

01

Footies

Introduction to the game of soccer.  The footies program meets once a week (Weeknight) on 6 occasions through the fall season.  These 4 year olds/rising 4 year olds will learn the basics of the game; kicking, dribbling, passing, shooting and having fun with soccer in general.  All players receive a ball and Footies t-shirt.

Clinic (U6-U7)

Continuation of the introduction to the game of soccer, only with a “team” structure.  Players practice 1 day during the week and have games on Saturday mornings.  There are no goalies in the clinic field of play and coaches are on the field with the players to guide them through the process, and act as the refs for the games.  All players receive a ball and uniform (Shirt and socks).

03

Development Rec.

This is a program unique to Catonsville Soccer.  The players are introduced for the US Soccer “Rules of the game”.  The games are played with actual Refs and coaches are no longer on the field.  Goal Keepers are introduced as well as actual goals.  All lines on the field are true to the real game of soccer.  Refs are encouraged to make the calls according to the rule, but to allow a “do-over” for things such as throw-ins until they get it right, or offsides.  Practice 1 day during the week and games on Saturday.  All players receive a ball and uniform (Shirt and socks).
