Winnipeg Phoenix FC follows and maintains the Canada Soccer club licensing requirements under the Canada Soccer Standards of Quality Soccer (SQS) and includes area community clubs wishing to offer youth soccer programs in the North-East area of the City of Winnipeg to participate under the Phoenix SQS license. Our goal is to create a consistent program across the entire district, including fees, and improve the overall quality of the soccer programs.
Long Term Player Development Stage TWO Fundamentals “FUN WITH THE BALL”
At this stage, players should participate in simulating practices and games that develop basic technical skill in a FUN atmosphere. The emphasis should be on movement exercises and games that promote a feel for the ball while teaching basic principles within a fun but structured setting. Mini-games formats are 5v5 and a basic league schedule will be created but no standing will be kept. All players should play equal time, try all positions, and equal time should be allotted to practices and games.
Goal: Technique development through fun.
Emphasize skills and ABC’s not tactics.
Fun games, no standings.
