WDMSC U9/U10 Recreational Soccer Program

The WDMSC 9U/10U Recreational Program is phase three of our player pathway and a critical stage in our player development model. For the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 seasons, this program is for players born between 1/1/2010 and 12/31/2011. The focus remains strongly on fun, sportsmanship, and the basic fundamentals of the game. Children begin to learn more technical skill development and parent coaches have the opportunity to enjoy coaching for the entire season. The club supports parent coaches with player and coaching clinics, curriculum, and written resources. Games are referred by a certified youth referee and remain very relaxed and positive. All children play equal time.

Program Format/Game Days

The teams will play 7-on-7 (6-on-6 and a goalkeeper), which ensures that players have regular contact with the ball during the game.

Players are also encouraged to continue participating in a variety of additional activities to help enhance the full range of basic movement skills and physical literacy.
