U9 FUNDAMENTAL COMMUNITY PROGRAM: U9 Program will run on Thursday nights. The U9 program will hold weekly practices, 60 minutes in duration and consisting of general movement, soccer skills and small-sided games. They will also be introduced to game play and will have games scheduled throughout the 10-week blocks. U9 game days will consist of a scheduled match against another WSA U9 team. The philosophy of the U9 program is to support play within reasonably modified and applied laws of the game. There are referees but no official scores, or standings are recorded.

We strive to create a program that develops and encourages new and current players to grow and develop together. In line with the Long-Term Development Program, the most important focus at this stage is to continue to develop all players physical literacy, and we recognize that individual technique development is paramount. Coaches at this stage strive to create a stimulating and engaging learning environment for players to learn in a fun-filled small-sided game environment. The program begins to move into a team format where teams will begin to play against each other. 

The program goal is to provide a rewarding, enjoyable soccer-playing experience for all participants, regardless of their skill level. The program follows the GAG model, which is the Game Activity Game.

This program focuses on teaching the fundamental aspects of:

  • sport participation
  • encouraging all young players to master the basic techniques of soccer
  • the development of physical and movement literacy.

Building on the fundamental techniques, our program is designed to;

  • to allow participants to explore with the ball,
  • to engage with the foundational skills such as dribbling, passing, and shooting in a competition free environment

PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (DEVILS)

Weyburn Soccer Association believes in providing a “Positive Soccer Experience" to all members. Everyone at WSA deserves the opportunity to develop their abilities to their full potential. As such, WSA is proud to offer a Player Development Program (PDP). This program is an introduction to our Devils programming (competitive stream).

Skill development is the primary goal for all youth players, particularly between the ages of 7 and 12, as outlined in the CSA’s Long Term Player Development (LTPD) model. WSA will focus its resources on skill development by creating a developmental environment for every player that matches his/her individual playing needs and abilities. As players mature, they need to be given the freedom to move up or down the competitive spectrum, depending on what environment best meets their developmental stage.

 When you sign up for our PDP program you receive:

1) Extra practise times 

2) Zoom player education sessions with iCloud Coaching 

3) Information on nutrition and nutrition consulting - Sarah Church

4) Mental Health training 

5) Player analysis on games played (older players can get clips of them saved to a folder for recruiting)

6) Opportunity to travel to games and tournaments

In our player development program we slogan "COME TRY US OUT" as we don't have try outs, anyone wishing to try the PDP program are welcome too! Players mist be registered in the community programming to be part of the PDP programs. 

PREFERRED TRAINING MODEL: GAG Model

The use of the GAG Model - Game Activity Game - allows for a balance of coaching a specific topic within a game, developing that topic in the activity, and allowing the players to implement that in the game for themselves without coaches constantly talking.

The second game is vital to allow players to make mistakes or do something great and so learn for themselves. Coaches will be there to encourage for this game and ensure player rotation.
