MICRO SOCCER: AGE GROUPS U4 & U5

Micro Soccer provides an introduction to the game of soccer in a positive, engaging, and non-competitive atmosphere.  At this level, our youngest players learn basic soccer skills while developing their gross motor skills and coordination. Players are encouraged to have multiple touches on the ball through fun skill-building games. They are introduced to soccer while making new friends and most of all, having FUN!

Philosophy and Objectives

The Waxhaw approach to soccer education at this age focuses on developing a love of soccer.  At these ages, happiness is the most important achievement. However, Waxhaw fully intends to develop skill, balance and coordination, positive socialization, and early leadership skills. 

  • Soccer Education:  1 ball, 1 player
  • Technical activities are disguised as fun, imaginative, role-playing activities
  • Emphasis consists of dribbling-starting, stopping, changing directions, and varying speeds
  • Passing into a net, passing/striking the ball into open spaces and nets will be game driven
  • Games will include problem-solving, teamwork, individual expression, and goal-setting
