U5-U6 Friday Night Micro

The program also known as, "Micro Soccer", introduces the game to our youngest players. We run one program during the year in the Fall. During registration, players are grouped by school and grades as best as possible and are assigned a volunteer coach (typically a parent from the team).

For the first 15 minutes of each session, teams will perform the video skill sent to coaches via email prior to the session. Coaches will have had time to watch the video of the skill for the evening, then simply perform the skill with their team. After the players have had the opportunity to practice the new skill, they will move into small sided games.

U5 and U6:

 

All sessions are on Friday nights for 8 weeks in September and October. Below are the specific dates:

  • Location: Issaquah Highlands Central Park Turf Fields

  • Time: 5:30pm - 6:30pm

  • Dates: September 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th, October 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th

What is the cost of the program?

 

The cost is $99 which includes 1 game a week for 8 weeks, game jersey & coach equipment.

 

What age group is my child in?

 

The Age Chart will help you determine which age group your child should play with. Please reference the Rec age groups. All Rec teams will be formed by School year format, NOT birth year.

Volunteer Coaches:

 

All of the teams are assigned a volunteer coach, who is typically a parent from the team. Parent coaches are not required to have prior experience. Coaches need to have enthusiasm and a willingness to be at each session to help guide and teach their players.
