Making teams:  This is going to be up to each team.  Coaches can put together players to from their teams (fall 2019). Coaches or families can also invite kids that are the correct ages (based upon fall 20 age groups) to play.   Coaches will collect funds from each family (families will write their checks to the coach) and then write the Club one check.  The team can come up with their own name if wanted (approval from the Club).  The deadline to submit a team will be OCTOBER 12nd.  Rosters and checks must be received by this date (please remember that our office is closed on Mondays so if you are coming into the office, it needs to be by the 9th.  You can email me the roster and then bring me a check on the 13th if you would like).

I AM MAKING A ROSTER THAT WILL NEED TO BE FILLED OUT.  I WILL POST THIS EMAIL ONLINE UNDER THE RECREATIONAL TAB OMLINE AT GJSOCCER.ORG TOMORROW BY NOON.

To make this work, we MUST have at least 4 teams in each bracket.

Your team will play a double header on Saturday.  The first game could start as early as 9:30 AM and the last game could start as late as 2:00PM.  All games will be at Canyon View.

U6-11 teams will need to provide a parent from each team to referee.  Middle school Bracket, the Club will provide the Center Referee but each team will need to provide Assistant Referee's No Club referee's will be available to AR games.

Social Distancing:  We can have two parents per player.  Each team will be on opposing sidelines with their fans on that side as well.  We ask that you keep six feet away from others not in your family.  Your help in this is very important as we want to make sure we are showing the City and Health Department that we can hold an event and follow their guidelines.

8/6/2020

We are sad to announce that our Fall 2020 soccer season has been canceled due to Covid-19.  We were informed Tuesday afternoon that we would not be able to hold this season.  This decision has made by The Governor's office and CHSSA, which is the sports governing body for the State of Colorado.  We are working with the City to come up with some PDP Skills Clinics (small groups)we will be able to conduct this Fall.  We will send our plan to the Parks & Rec  Department for approval this week and will update everyone as soon as possible.

If you signed up for our 7/8 or 10/11 PDP programs, those will NOT Start next week.  We will have updated info next week as well.

We will also announce our plan in case parents would like a refund or transfer  to the Spring of 2021.

We have a plan in place for our Competitive Players and hope to have  the same type of program for our Rec and Middle school players.  Our hope is to offer training that includes ball mastery, passing, receiving and agility.  These  trainings will happen in the afternoon by age groups.

If you call the office, please remember that I am by myself at least half the day so if you get can't reach us. please leave a message and someone will call you back.

We want to thank everyone for your continued support and look forward to being able to offer soccer to your kids in the future.

Recreational Training Program for Teams and Coaches

U4-7 Program Overview: 

 The Recreational Training program, ran by Fire FC professional staff coach Karl Biddison,  is designed to train not only the players involved, but is designed to pass on information to each team's coach so that they can accurately and effectively train their teams away from this program. The more that the Fire FC can inform and educate parent coaches within the recreation program, the higher the quality of player will be  produced from the recreation program.

This is an eight week program that will involve one training per week for each specific age group. The age groups are: U4/5 and U6/7/8. Each training session will follow closely the Fire FC Recreational Development Model.

Program Philosophy:
This program is designed to promote and instill the love of the sport of soccer in an enthusiastic and safe manner, where not only players
benefit from learning individual and team skills, but the parent coaches benefit from learning how to properly be involved and coach their teams. Coaches will be asked to run activities during the season after learning from Karl the first couple weeks. Karl will be there to watch how the coaches teach specific lessons and how coaches interact with players.

u4/5 - Mondays - 5:00 - 5:45pm on Maverick South Field

u6/7 - Mondays - 6:00 - 7:00pm on Maverick South Field

Starting Monday 9/9, will be every Monday until 10/14.

More Info coming soon.

To sign up for the Recreational Training Program, please email  Karl Biddison at (970) 237-2279 or [email protected] with you team name and age group.

 

Individual Age Breakdown & Curriculum
The practices are designed to get the players familiar with the basic and complex movements in soccer, while giving them plenty of opportunities to gain confidence whilst dribbling the soccer ball. A very heavy importance of confident dribblers will be the main premise of the course. All activities will be designed to promote these facets of learning soccer in a safe, organized, and fun way.

U4 & U5
For ages 4 and 5 this program is intended to promote constant movement with and without a soccer ball, also this age is promoted by incorporating some ball skill included within a variety of games to keep the players constantly moving and getting touches on the ball.

Training's will typically include:
- Brief directions; repeated when necessary
- Lots of varied movement with and without ball
- Many Activities of short duration
- Lots of Water Breaks
- About 45 minute sessions
- Emphasis on familiarity and confidence with a soccer ball

U6 & U7
Ages 6 and 7 will focus on soccer-nastics (movements in every direction) and promotion of continued confidence with a soccer ball. This will be done through techniques such as "individual discovery" and "guided discovery". At this age the focal points of trainings will be ball mastery.

 Trainings will typically include:
- Brief direction, and brief player discovery
- A mixture of maze and target style games and activities
- Sessions running for about an hour
- Emphasizing ball mastery and individual discovery

U8
At the ages of 8 and 9 players begin to start showing improved locomotive kills, so a less emphasis of "soccer-nastics" however; movement will still 
be a point of recognition. Also at these ages players have basic technical skills and cognitive recognition for the game. Focal points for ages 8 and 9
will include ball mastery as well as improved understanding of team skills. A large focus of individual discovery will be set for a higher level of cognitive ability from the players.

Trainings will typically include -
- Slightly more complex activities
- Mixture of individual and partner/team activities
- Sessions which run about an hour
- Emphasis on ball mastery and improved team skills
