January 2023

West Seattle Soccer Club is pleased to continue its skills clinic & games program for our Spring 2023 U6/U7 Coed season. For several years, we have partnered with UK International Soccer to provide Master Coaches that assist our volunteer coaches each game day by demonstrating skills practice for our youngest players. This season, we again have partnered with UKIS to provide Master Coaches for a skills clinic program and games.

Each Sunday for eight weeks, our U6/U7 Coed teams can participate in one-hour skills clinics (concluding with a game) under the guidance of UKIS Master Coaches. We are excited to have our young players exercising outside and look forward to everyone working together to make this program a success.

Overview and Guidelines

Masks are not required. Players and parents are encouraged to wear masks if they would prefer.

Session Description

Our Master Coach program for U6 and U7 teams and volunteer coaches provides a UKIS Master Coach – a professional coach with a lot of experience with this age group – to teach soccer-based activities designed to develop skills and keep the kids engaged. After working through the skills, teams will then play a game. There will be two UKIS Master Coaches rotating between the 5 fields, supporting and assisting our volunteer coaches.
