Jr. Academy Soccer Sessions are divided into 3 parts:

  • Physical Literacy; repetition of movement to develop balance and motor skills
  • Introduction to soccer; establish a relationship between the ball and player
  • Players learn basic rules of soccer through fun games
  • Each program aims to teach players the fundamental basics of soccer, with a focus on proper technique and tons of touches from the very beginning.
  • Players are put into low numbered teams so they get a ton of attention and lots of time with the ball.
  • Jr Academy has a Licensed Head Coach plus trained technical staff who support the Jr. Academy during their practices and small sided games. They also have volunteer parent coaches.
  • UMSC follows the Ontario Soccer Association’s Long Term Player Development. There are no scores or standings, just a very positive environment that will encourage your child to fall in love with the game and will keep them active & healthy for their entire lives!
