The 7U/8U program continues to provide an exciting introduction to soccer in a friendly and non-competitive environment while consisting of a mixture of beginners and moderately experienced players. With this in mind, the program creates an enjoyable and challenging environment for players to develop their soccer skills and understanding of the game through reinforcing aspects of soccer coached in 6U and introducing players to more advanced aspects of soccer. Dribbling, shooting, passing, receiving, juggling and movement education, such as running, jumping, turning, balancing are incorporated into age appropriate soccer activities. Kids practice twice a week with a separate 5v5 game on Saturdays. Practices, an hour in length, are designed to improve individual ball skills and introduce the concept of team play. Children need to have a uniform to participate. Trophies are provided by the club for every child.

Teams are led by a volunteer head coach that conducts practice with support from the Recreational Director.
