U6 Micro Soccer Spring 2022

Welcome to the NECONN Soccer Club which includes players from the towns of Brooklyn, Eastford, Killingly, Pomfret, Putnam, Thompson, and Woodstock. We will be following the guidelines of “MICRO SOCCER” which means that our children, ages five and six, will be learning the skills of the game, in a fun environment. You will see how they enjoy themselves playing games like shark and minnows, red light – green light, and marbles. After the skill games, they will be broken out into groups to compete in “The Micro World Cup” 3V3 soccer matches.

 

This game format consists of 2 teams, each having 3 or 4 players. The games are played without goalies and “goal hanging” will be discouraged. This format allows each player to have more touches on the ball during the game. Encouraging the children to make the correct decision to pass or shoot, teaches better ball control and the players learn to work together on the  field as a team. An added bonus is that there will be more opportunities for goals to be scored by all.

Each Micro player will need for following equipment: cleats or sneakers, shin guards with

soccer socks covering the shin guards, a size 3 soccer ball and a water bottle to bring to all practices.  Each child will be given a jersey at the first session.

This spring, the coaches and players from ECSU will again be helping us with our

U6 program. We will hold three sessions each Saturday at the Prince Hill

Field in Brooklyn.

The first session will be held from 12:30 p.m. -1:30 p.m.  Players from Brooklyn, Hampton, Rogers and Uptown will attend

 

The second session will be from 1:45 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.  Players from Putnam, Killingly and Thompson and will attend

The third session will be from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Players from Woodstock, Pomfret and Eastford will attend.

· The first session will be held Saturday, April 23, 2022 at The Prince Hill Field in Brooklyn.

· Practice sessions every Saturday afternoon through June 11th, with the exception of May 28, 2022.

· There are very strict rules on earrings and anything metal (including in hair). The rule is “It

must come out”. The holes in your child’s ear will NOT close up during practice time. This is

a club rule and also a rule from CJSA. An earring can easily get caught in a shirt, especially

with the younger players, as they tend to bunch together when they play.

 

· What do we do about inclement weather? If it is a light drizzle, we continue to play. Very

rarely do we call the day because of rain, but it has happened before. Our fields can get

quite soft and wet. The coaching coordinators will check the forecast and the fields early to

make the decision to cancel the practice. Please look for an email in the case of inclement weather.

We are looking forward to having a FUN soccer season!
