Grassroots (U6-U11)

PGYSA IMPACT - Grassroots Program

The IMPACT Grassroots Program provides development for young players U6 to U11 years. Designed to build on the Fundamental Movement Skills learned in the Initiation program, we introduce more specific game fundamentals in the areas of:

  • Dribbling
  • Passing
  • Receiving
  • Ball control
  • Rhythm
  • Turning
  • Shooting.

Fundamental education in the principles of play and small-sided game tactics (1v1 - 7v7) are provided, so that all participants have a fundamental understanding of attacking and defending actions. 

The Club Grassroots program has evolved to align with Canada Soccer’s Long Term Player Development Model and new Grassroots Standards. Our goal is to teach young players our Club principles, values and developmental philosophy, while respecting the opposition, the officials, and our teammates.

All young players deserve the opportunity to build their confidence through a well-designed and structured program. Players are more likely to stay in sport if they feel competent at a task. No matter the level that a young player wishes to reach, our Grassroots program strives to provide all participants with the foundation they need to have success.
