PROGRAM DESCRIPTION TECHNICAL LEAD: Steve Duffy, email@example.com
Our U13-U17 recreational/house soccer program, is a beginner to intermediate program led by volunteer coaches focussed on providing an excellent experience/environment by ensuring that safety, organization, structure and fun/enjoyment exists for both players and coaches. The environment created will provide an opportunity for players to develop technical ability, comprehension of team play and formations, and individual Speed, Agility and Quickness (SAQ). The end goal will be the identification, advancement and continued development of future Rep and Non-Rep coaches and players. All U13-U18 recreational teams will play in the BC Coastal Soccer League, against teams from different areas of the Lower Mainland, meaning ideally 50% of games will be played at home at South Surrey Athletic Park, and 50% elsewhere.
