“We want to continue the momentum we built this fall and continue if with our oldest micro kids to give them the tools to be successful as they soon enter our Jr. Academy Program”

Clark Brisson

JIYSC will feature an inaugural Winter Micro season. The Micro Winter Soccer program provides educational and developmental training for all players born between players born in 2015 and 2016 only.  The rules for micro-soccer emphasize basic skills while having lots of fun. We aim to provide players a bridge between Micro and Junior Academy soccer. Players will be exposed to JI experienced coaches and will be in a team environment for the duration of the program. David Jordan will be lead the sessions and currently holds a USSF “B” license.

Sessions are based on US Youth Soccer guidelines and as a club, we believe following these we will be able to offer a beneficial development program for the players. The concept behind micro-soccer is to allow more touches on the ball by having small teams playing on small fields. The practice is led by professional JIYSC coaches alongside volunteer Micro Team Coaches. The sessions are designed to expose kids to the basic fundamentals of the game of soccer while promoting a “fun-first” atmosphere based on JIYSC curriculum.

Micro Soccer uses small-sided games with fewer players, smaller fields, and shorter game times as a way of keeping kids engaged. As they get older, more emphasis is placed on learning and additional players are added to the field to allow interaction and promote teamwork.
