Jr. Blues U8 Academy Program
6 and 7 Year Olds
Blues FC’s Jr. Blues Program provides the best soccer environment for young soccer players. To introduce you and your player to the world of competitive sports, we offer a professional and experienced staff, a proven curriculum that is fun and challenging and a soccer setting that inspires confidence and tenacity.
Jr. Blues Curriculum:
Our Jr. Blues curriculum sets the foundation for development of our youngest players and is the first stage in the building blocks of our Blues FC player development pathway. Our curriculum has developed players who have competed at the highest levels, including US National Team, All-Americans and professional players.
Foot skills, (Tiku-Tiku) Dribbling, Passing, Moves, Running with and without the ball
We use 1v1, 2v2 and 4 v 4 small-sided games to teach shape and positional awareness while building attacking and defending confidence. All at a very basic level and understanding for the age.
Motor skills games and fun relays are used to encourage and teach directional changes consistent with soccer movement.
At Blues FC, we use positive encouragement to teach while also emphasizing player development and fun rather than game day results. This puts our players on the right path to developing confidence, skills, a respect for others, a love for the game and the ability to play without being afraid to make mistakes.
