6-7/8U Club Development Program

Overview

Led by a professional member of EPSC Soccer Staff, Scott Macleod.

Trainers are all licensed* and follow a club curriculum.

A soccer program that introduces the sport to children with fun activities, individual ball handling skills and small sided games.

Open sign ups, no teams, train and play in pools and split in to small groups on festival days.

We host other clubs and visit 1-2 other clubs in the area.

High emphasis on individual ball skills, balance, body mechanics, fun and social skills.

Low emphasis on skills, positions, commitment and large team concept.
