The Port Moody Soccer Club is deeply committed to growing the skills and opportunities for the youngest members of our club. We know that focusing on developing players at this level will create players who love our game and have a higher chance of pursuing physical activity throughout their life, particularly if they are supported in the right way. Our new U6 and U7 Challengers program is a reimagining of our team program for this age group. Rather than have volunteer coaches step in each week and run individual teams that never change, our professional staff will meet with all the kids of a specific age group (U6 or U7) and will lead two training sessions a week for that age group. Volunteer coaches who are new to coaching will be able to join in and have the opportunity to learn from our quality coaching staff on how to help develop the players in a fun and highly effective way. Each weekend, all the players will arrive at the field for games and will be divided up into teams of equal ability. This balanced approach gives all players the opportunity to grow and learn together as one large unit under the eyes of our excellent coaching staff, before moving into either recreational or competitive team play in the years ahead.
