June 2021

West Seattle Soccer Club is pleased to continue its skills clinic & games program for our Fall 2021 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. All participants are required to execute a hold harmless waiver and strictly observe safety protocols. 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

The following program allows safe soccer training for U6 and U7 players. It is designed to maintain safe distance and other precautions against spreading COVID-19 while also providing an structured opportunity for young children to be active, develop physical skills, and be part of a team.

Session Description

Covid protocols may be substantially different when the Fall season starts in September.  Currently, all participants must be masked except during actual play, and all spectators must wear masks and maintain social distancing at at all times. 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.
