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 - 5:45 PM
u6/7 - Mondays - 6:00 - 7:00pm 

All practices Mondays starting 3/8 going to 5/3 north of the pavilion 

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

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
