Winter – Under 7/8/9 Skill Centre


For more information on the new Skill Centre Festival League UDFC is hosting a meeting – October 2nd 6pm @ Woodlawn Auditorium 

Our U7, U8 & U9 Skill Centre programs are designed to provide the players with a fun, social experience that continues to grow a love for soccer as well as beginning to teach the basic skills, and tactics of soccer. Practices will be based on the Skill Centre model where the players are split into groups each week, playing a series of games and drills to develop soccer skills. The players can then test these skills in the weekly jamborees Vs other clubs.

Program Additions

Weekly jamborees on weekends

* In exceptional cases it may be recommended that a player move into the Community program if the Director of Soccer feels the child would be more successful at this level. **Out of respect for the coaches and the other players on the team, it is expected that all players will be at games and practices unless they have let the coach know (with reasonable notice) that they will be absent.
