    Young Legends League

    Young Legends League (U5-U8)

    IntroductionProgram Details

    The Young Legends League provides beginner boys and girls players in the U5-U8 with an age-appropriate program structured to provide children a fun experience playing soccer in small-numbered games. Game formats provide for fewer players on the field, thus increasing the opportunities for involvement, ball contact, physical activity, and enjoyment.

    Supervision and instruction is provided by both volunteer coaches and Manitou FC coaching staff.  Players are guided in games and one weekly training session by volunteer coaches while a second “club lead” session is conducted by Manitou FC coaching staff each week during the league season.

    Team Formation: Teams are formed based on the age groupings of Under-5/U5, Under-6/U6, Under-7/U7, and Under-8/U8. “Under or U” indicates that the team is composed of players who are younger than the respective age indicated, based on the cut-off date of December 31. Because of this policy, no team will have players assigned who are the age of the team or older. For example, no player 8 years old or older would be placed on an Under-8 team. Teams are constructed based on their respective gender.

    Young Legends Beginners

    Young Legends Beginners (U3-U4)

    INTRODUCTIONPROGRAM DETAILS

    Our Young Legends Beginners program is designed for young children with an emphasis on movement education, e.g., running, jumping, skipping, turning, and changing directions, that aids the development of basic athletic qualities. An introduction to soccer begins with the involvement of a soccer ball in activities that form a relationship between the individual’s movement and the ball, further developing foot-eye coordination as well as their personal touch on the ball.

    Given the age of the participants, the development of socialization skills and learning how to play is also a significant element of the program as these young boys and girls are likely participating in their first ever sporting experience.

    Season 2024:  January–April  

    Age Group & Gender:  Ages 3-4 Boys and Girls  

    Birth Years:  2020-2021
