NEW FIELD RULES – A REMINDER
1/ Dogs MUST be leashed and away from players during soccer practices and games. Again this year we saw an obscene number of balls damaged and thrown away due to being punctured by dogs.
2/ BIKES and STROLLERS/CHARIOTS should be left parked away from field playing areas.
3/ NO SPECTATORS are to be in the area between the 2 half fields when set up for U12 games. This space is reserved for players, coaches and referees ONLY.
Parents and spectators are to be on the outside edge of the field. Please help by reminding others that this rule applies and go to the outside edge so that coaches and referees don’t have to ask you to move.
The coaches need to coach, the referees need to referee and parents need watch from the outer edge of the field, so the narrow strip between the fields is not congested.
SCAT 3 Baseline Testing Opportunity
Previously the club offered testing on field with a qualified Baseline tester, however we are now working with Back In Action Physiotherapy and testing will be completed in the clinic.
Back In Action Physiotherapy offers a tiered screening service and are qualified to offer all tests and can help you decide what is best for your player.
Call Back In Action Physiotherapy directly to book an appointment.

Having valuable data collected annually in the event of a concussion is an extremely valuable tool and will assist with your recovery process****
ePACT – we are no longer using this system. We have the information required within our RAMP registration system and we found that it was a resource that was not well used and therefore not worth spending the money on.

At this stage, players should participate in stimulating practices and games that develop basic technical skills in a FUN atmosphere. The emphasis should be movement exercises and games that promote a feel for the ball while teaching basic principles of play within a fun but structured setting. Mini game formats are used, ranging from 3v3 to 5v5 and a basic league schedule can be created but no standings should be kept. All players should play equal time and try all team positions, including goalkeeper, and equal time should be allotted to practices and games. *Coaches should be prepared to participate in classroom and on field
Pre-requisite: N/A (minimum age requirement is 16 years old)
Course Length: 7.5 hours
Course Fee: $40

LEARNING TO TRAIN (U9-U12)
Saturday 1 October 9-5pm
Sunday 2 October 9-5pm
Location: Brennan Park Recreation Centre, Squamish
This stage introduces players to disciplined training and begins to develop their understanding of principles of play alongside their skills practice. Repetitions are important to develop technical proficiency, but creating a fun and challenging environment is still paramount to stimulate learning and promote a love of the game. Game formats can range from 6v6 to 8v8 as players advance through this stage, and again a simple league schedule can be created, but no standings should be kept – the emphasis is still FUN. All players play equal time and try all team positions, including goalkeeping, and the training to competition ratio should be 2 to 3 training sessions for every game. Coaches should be prepared to participate in classroom and on field
Pre-requisite: N/A (minimum age requirement is 16 years old)
Course Length: 14 hours
Course Fee: $72.50
