U5-U7 MICRO FALL SOCCER PROGRAM
The goal of Micro Soccer is to introduce kids and their parents to soccer in a fun, safe environment. Micro soccer has weekly sessions that include a professionally led skills clinic followed by scrimmages. Micro soccer teams have up to 6 players who scrimmage 3v3 without goalkeepers. The approach we will be taking each week is to focus on coordination during warm up's and then progressing week to week through skill development including dribbling, ball control, individual/small group game understanding, passing, turning, and finally, shooting.
We group teams based on the schools they attend (when possible).
All players are of the same age/gender.
Parent volunteers coach the practice/games.
Micro soccer is for our youngest players, U5, U6 and U7, typically Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st Grade.
Please refer to our Age chart for age level based on birth year.

MICRO PROGRAM DETAILS
SEASON AND TIME COMMITMENT
Micro soccer will occur only on Saturday mornings from 9-10:30AM, played within the Issaquah School District. The season begins on September 9th (after Labor Day) and runs for 8 weeks with the last session on Saturday, October 28th.
Parent coaches don't have to have past soccer experience as the trainers will be showing the coaches what they need to do with their teams each week. Coaches need to have enthusiasm and a willingness to be at practice each session.
The combo practice/game will take place at: Tibbets Valley Park: 965 12th Ave NW, Issaquah 98027 (Please note this is subject to field availability and could change)
As part of registration, Micro soccer players receive a full uniform kit including a jersey, shorts, socks and a #3 size ball!
WHAT TO BRING TO EACH CLINIC
Each player needs to bring the #3 soccer ball they will receive as part of their registration. It is important to label your soccer ball and water bottle so as not to get confused with other players.
Shoes. Cleats are preferable because they grip the wet grass and are good for lateral movement. Tennis shoes are fine however.
Shin guards: All kids MUST have shin guards to play in any practices or games.
Registration Fees: Please consult the registration fee table
