WHAT AGES IS OP JUNIORS FOR?
U5, U6, U7 (players born between Aug. 1, 2006 and July 31, 2009)
Goals of the Program?
Goals for the Ohio Premier Juniors program are FUN, TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENT and SPORTSMANSHIP. FUN comes first, because when children enjoy soccer, learning takes care of itself – they want to come back for “more.” TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENT is vital, for without basic skills, players are limited in their athletic expression and their enjoyment of soccer is reduced. The OP Juniors aims to instill a solid technical base in each player, so that they are ready for U8/9 travel soccer. Finally, SPORTSMANSHIP is crucial. Soccer is a team sport, so players must absorb the basic elements of SPORTSMANSHIP: teamwork, cooperation, listening, basic work ethic, and attention to instruction. Even if a player does not continue with soccer, these elements of SPORTSMANSHIP will serve them well in school, work and life.
WHAT DO THEY DO DURING A SESSION?
Players meet twice per week to work on various individual soccer skills and play small sided games.
