Simsbury Soccer Club began our U9 Travel Development Program.
U9 Development to is open to children born between between January 1st, 2009 and December 31st, 2009. A copy of a legal proof of age document such as a passport or birth certificate is required to participate.
There will be 23 to 25 players in each of the boys and girls programs.
Players will be selected based on age specific tryouts conducted in the spring.
All the players will practice together in both programs.
The training/game ratio will consist of three days of training and one “friendly” (non-league) game per week.
The practice schedule will be two week day practices for the entire group together and a Sunday afternoon small sided (4v4 type games) / practice.
Training sessions will be directed by at least one Independent (non-parent volunteer) coach, and assisted by parent volunteers selected by the Club.
Games will be played on Saturdays at two pre-set, consistent times so as to minimize scheduling conflicts.
The players will be divided into “Blue” and “Gold” teams (and not traditional “A” and “B” teams) every two weeks by the Independent coach based on criteria determined at his/her discretion.
The cost (not including uniforms) will be approximately $400-$450/player, per season (different factors effect final cost).
For any U9 players who try out and are not selected, or who prefer to play in a less competitive format, SSC offers a U10 Farmington Valley program.
