Fundamentals U4-U8
Faly Academy Team Programs

The Faly Academy Fundamentals Team programs are designed for U4-U8 boys and girls to enjoy and progress through their soccer development with an emphasis on “fun” while being new North Shore Youth Soccer League members (upon acceptance). 

The Faly Academy Fundamentals Team Program offers a new way to discover football for boys and girls. This program creates an enjoyable learning environment where we focus on teaching the basics of football through fun and cognitive activities. We work directly with the kids to develop key motor skills such as running, jumping, and side shuffling so that they can learn to control their body movements and the ball. Our sessions teach the kids about the love of football while they learn to play alongside their friends.

When?
Each season is 10 months long and runs for 3 terms (Fall, Winter, Spring) from September to June

Training and games typically played at French Schools, Collingwood School and/or Empire Fields.

A recreational introduction to the game of soccer

Actively encourages the type of physical exercise you would commonly find in a school playground which includes running, jumping, throwing and catching a ball. By establishing an environment of self confidence among the participants, a gentle exposure to the basic, fundamental ball skills can be introduced. The positioning and stance of the body to enable a ball to be kicked correctly, the parts of the foot best suited to kicking a ball, simple balancing techniques and of course, a little informal and relaxed game time.

Early Development: The basic foundations to the game of soccer

Educates players to understand the principles of the game, very basic rules and regulations, communication with fellow players, control and passing movement, body coordination and posture and small field, informal game time.
