Academy Development Program U6-U8

Mapola FC Academy offers a Micro Developmental Soccer Program for 6-8 year old children. Our club provides a fun and safe environment to learn to play soccer through age appropriate activities and small-sided soccer games. The Micro developmental Soccer is a program that includes age appropriate activities involving games or activities where all the players are involved and the activity is appropriate for the player’s age group and development. Children need to be successful to learn. Asking a 6 year old or younger player to play a position or formation is setting them up for failure. They do not have the technical or cognitive ability to play a position successfully.

Winter/Spring Micro Soccer will take place Sunday Morning or Friday night, Dates and times are determined and are set by the program director. Summer Micro Soccer will take place either on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. Times are either 6:00pm-7:00pm or 7:00pm-8:00pm. Dates and times are determined prior to the start of the season and are set by the program director. The season for summer micro-soccer is the same as the season for the summer Elite program.
