EBU Juniors

EBU JUNIORS

Soccer programs for all children in Pre-K through 2nd Grade

EBU Juniors programs for children born in 2013 and after have been suspended since the shelter in place in March 2020. We will relaunch some programming for this age group in early 2021... please see below for details!

Soccer School

PreK - 2nd Grade

Weekly 1-hour soccer classes led by trained, high-energy, positive coaches that love working with the youngest players. Groups are separated by age/grade, playing ability, and in some cases by gender. Soccer school classes are designed to be age-appropriate, engaging, challenging and fun, whether your child has never played before, or already wants to be a pro!

2021 CALENDAR

SEASON I: January 18 - March 27, 2021

SEASON II: April 5 - June 12th, 2021

SEASON III: September 13 - November 20th, 2021

REGISTRATION FOR 2021 OPENS ON DECEMBER 1, 2020!

U6 3v3 Program

Kindergarten

Kindergarten age children join a team coached by parent volunteers with support from our professional coaching staff. Teams meet on Saturdays for a one hour session that follows the "Play, Practice, Play" methodology:

 

SESSION FORMAT

- Team Huddle

- PLAY - 1st 15 minute 3v3 game with another team

- PRACTICE - 15-20 minutes of fun learning activities to help develop players technical skills. Sample practice plans provided by the club.

- PLAY - 2nd 15 minute 3v3 game with another team

- Closing Huddle

Games are "grassroots" style, with kick-ins (instead of throw-ins), no referees, no goalies, and no keeping score. The environment is designed to increase engagement, and maximize the time that each player spends with the ball (dribbling, shooting, and yes, even passing sometimes!)

2021 CALENDAR

SPRING SEASON: April 5 - June 12th, 2021

FALL SEASON: September 13 - November 20th, 2021

REGISTRATION FOR SPRING 2021 OPENS ON DECEMBER 1, 2020!

U8 4v4 Program

1st & 2nd Graders

1st and 2nd Graders join a team coached by parent volunteers with support from our professional coaching staff. Teams meet on Saturdays for a one hour session that includes two 4v4 games with another team.

Games are "grassroots" style, with kick-ins (instead of throw-ins), no referees, no goalies, and no keeping score. The environment is designed to maximize the time that each player spends with the ball (dribbling, shooting, and yes, even passing sometimes!)

During the Fall Season, 4v4 teams meet once a week on a weekday for a 60 minute practice with their parent coaches. During the spring our 4v4 teams do not have weekday team practices; however, players are encouraged to also sign up for Soccer School classes for more game time and development.

SPRING SEASON: April 5 - June 12th, 2021

FALL SEASON: September 13 - November 20th, 2021
