U19 Girls



 

U19 Indoor 2022/2023 Tier 4 Program Outline

For players born in 2004 and 2005.

Philosophy: "Play for Life"

At this stage, players should participate in stimulating practices and games that develop basic technical skills in a challenging atmosphere. The effect of the coach is critical at this stage. Skill demonstration is especially important, and the players learn best by doing. The players should have a satisfactory level of physical literacy. The community sessions will be focused on a challenging training session and their games.

Coaching

Volunteer coaches are appointed for the season and are supported on a regular basis by the SPDSA Technical Department. Coaches are required to submit a criminal record check (CRC) and complete Respect in Sport (RiS) online training. Additionally, at least one coach must complete the Soccer for Life coaching certification and complete the Making Ethical Decisions module. All certification costs are covered or reimbursed by SPDSA. Head coaches will receive a $100 credit toward their player's registration once all administrative tasks are completed and equipment is returned at the end of each season. (Only one head coach per team is eligible for the credit.)

The best qualities of a coach for this stage of player are to:

  • be enthusiastic and encouraging,
  • demonstrate whilst facilitating practice and,
  • stimulate ideas by asking questions.

Officials Cards

All team officials from U11 to U19 are required to have an SPDSA ID card and must present those cards to referees at games. Cards are valid for a maximum of 3 years (correlating with a valid CRC) and are the responsibility of the card holder; a fee may be charged for the replacement of lost cards. Officials without a card will not be allowed on the field or benching area during games.

Players Cards

All Players from U11 to U19 are required to have a digital SPDSA ID card. During registration, a head and shoulders photo upload is required for all players requiring an ID card. Please upload a current photo of the player.

Program Structure

The program is designed for one match day (game) and one practice weekly. Each practice should address individual ball mastery as well as individual and small group decisions, when attacking and defending. Session plans can be provided to coaches upon request. Technical coaches will provide support to coaches throughout the season upon request.

Game management

  • Teams are eligible to play towards provincial competition therefore, scores and standings are kept at this level.
  • Equal playing time for all players and opportunities to play various positions.
  • Manage the amount of coaching during the game by encouraging creativity and avoiding negative comments. Encourage both teams to play and always use kind, respectful language.
  • Promote soccer that is free flowing, is coach-guided but not coach directed, and encourages all players on the field, regardless of their specified position, to participate in defending and attacking.

Friend Requests

One reciprocal friend request per player may be submitted upon registration. We do our best to accommodate player requests while focusing on balancing teams.

Commitment Level

We hope that players who sign-up will participate in most games and practices throughout the season. Please communicate with team staff regarding absences with as much notice as possible.

The season starts mid-October and goes to the end of February, depending on the league. Teams that qualify for provincials will play until mid-March. Dates and location of Provincials is TBD.
