U5 & U6 Divisions

All U5 Parents and Participants  

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Vince Gifford.  I am the 5U Division Coordinator for the 2017 season.

The 5U program begins on the first day of the season, September 9th.  Everyone will show up at the same time, to sign in, get their ball, and run through a simple set of exercises.  Teams, actually practice squads, will then be assigned that first day, Sept 9th.  We will hand out uniforms at that time.   The squads will be a bit large, but will practice together each week.  In subsequent weeks, each squad will break into smaller groups, of three to four, at game time.  

The 5U program will be run on Saturdays only.  The first half hour will be a practice time, and the second half hour will be a scrimmage.  Games will be played three on three, no keepers, on a very small field, with parents encouraged on the field.  

All of 5U will run at the same time, currently scheduled between 10AM & 12PM
10:30 Field setup
10:30-10:55 Practice for All teams
11:00-11:30 Game Time for All teams
11:35-11:50 Field breakdown
We will be running the practice and scrimmages on Field 4, at the very back of Pioneer Park.  Please see the “Primary Season” tab of our region website www.prescottsoccer.net for the field diagram.  We will need help setting up and tearing down these mini fields each week and ask that parents help out where they can.  
 
Since there are no practices prior to the season, there will be no “coach” contacting you prior to the first day.   Although we are recruiting coaches to help run things, we will need a parent for each child to be available at game time.  This is an introduction to soccer, specifically, and to team sports in general.  There will be some hand holding.  

If you are interested in helping out beyond your child, please go to www.prescottsoccer.net to register as a volunteer.  You will need to complete Safe Haven and Concussion training.

On Friday, September 8th, we will be having our AYSO Kickoff Carnival.  We are encouraging all players to come out and participate.  We will have games and events for all kids to participate in. There will be a field set-up and breakdown example at the Kickoff Carnival.  We will have also have a  table set out and labelled with U-5, so you can see where to be the next day. 

Thank you for registering for this upcoming season.  We are anticipating an outstanding season!

See you on the pitch!

U6 Parents and Participants

The U6 program will begin on the first day of the season, September 9th.  Each team will have a different game time schedule each week so please pay attention to the game schedule once it is published.  Uniform hand outs are at the discretion of the coach. They can be given out ahead of time or they can be distributed the first game.   

The U6  program will be run on Saturdays only.  There are no weekly practices.   The first half hour will be a practice time, and the second half hour will be the game.  Games will be played three on three, no keepers, on a very small field, with only the Coach or Assistant Coach allowed on the field.  

We will be running the games on Field 3, at the very back left of Pioneer Park.  Please see the “Primary Season” tab of our region website www.prescottsoccer.net for the field diagram.  We will need help setting up and tearing down these mini fields each week and ask that parents help out where they can.  
 
Since there are no practices prior to the season, your coach should be contacting you prior to the first day.   Parents are encouraged to cheer, provide snacks and enjoy watching your children play .  

If you are interested in helping out beyond your child, please go to EAYSO to register as a volunteer.  You will need to complete Safe Haven and Concussion training.
