This KPSC 2010/2011/2012 Division continues our program designed to maximize player development. This program is designed to continually provide the best possible soccer experience for our youngest players. The skills/tasks for a particular week are provided and explained by the trainers which the coaches then work to implement in the games.
The 2010/2011/20121 sessions consist of individual sessions. Each Monday and Thursday the children are broken down into groups to train with our experienced trainers. The training session is an hour and half (with breaks throughout) to focus on foot skills and in game techniques so that they may utilize them during their Sunday.
The games take place on Sundays and through our partnership with Harborfields, the children not only will play against teams from Kings Park, but also play against teams from Harborfields. Games take place at both Cy Donnelly and Harborfields which gives the kids a small taste of travel soccer while not having to travel any long distance.
All aspects of the program are intended to allow maximum ball touches for each player. The development of gross motor skill will be enhanced through activities including running, jumping, kicking and throwing. Skills emphasized will include dribbling using / identifying various parts of the feet. Basic passing skills will be taught and utilized in later training sessions. Ultimately, the program is designed to allow the players to develop the confidence and skills necessary to successfully and confidently navigate with a soccer ball at their feet.
Team Size and Configuration:
Ideally there will be between 7 – 9 players per team. Mixed boys and girls. Every player will wear the standard KPSC intramural reversible uniform. All players are required to wear shin guards covered by socks to participate in both the training and game portions. Soccer shoes, tennis shoes or similar type of athletic shoes are recommended. Games are played with 6 field players including a goalkeeper. Games are controlled with the help of a referee. Substitutions are made so that all players receive an equal amount of playing time.
Goals will be supplied by the KPSC.
A size 4 ball is used in practice and the game.
The Start of Play:
To start the quarters, and following each goal, play is restarted with a kick-off in the center of the field. The home team kicks off to start the game and the away team kicks off to start the second half. Following a goal, the team scored upon kicks off.
The Kick Off:
The kick-off is taken from the center of the field with each team in their own half and the team not kicking off at least 5 yards from the ball. Do not insist the opponent be a minimum of precisely 5 yards from the ball as this is just a guide to give the kicker room to kick the ball without it immediately hitting an opponent. The intent is to let the players play and not interfere for technicalities.
Ball In And Out Of Play:
The ball is out of play when it completely crosses the touch line (side line) or goal line (end line) either on the ground or in the air. The adult supervisors or the referee will determine when the ball is out of play and should guide the restart with as little interference as possible. Restarts will consist of a throw in from the sideline, with the opposing team at least 5 yards away.
Method of Scoring:
A goal is awarded when the ball completely crosses the goal line into the goal. Goals should be enthusiastically celebrated by everyone. Goals are not recorded to determine who wins as everyone is a winner.
Fouls and Other Stoppages:
Deliberate fouling is rare in this age group. Kicking, tripping, handling the ball and dangerous play, however, may occur. There should be few, if any additional reasons to stop play. If a player is "not playing well with others: or if play must be stopped for any other reason (injury, substitution, confusion or to watch a passing plane or bird), refocus the players and begin again with a free kick or as may be appropriate a dropped ball. Award the free kick to whichever team deserves it.
Play may have to be stopped occasionally to "sort things out". When this is necessary, correct the situation, then restart with a free kick for the deserving team. The opposing team should be at least 5 yards away from the ball... All free kicks are direct free kicks.
When the ball goes out of play across the touch line or the goal line without a goal being scored, a throw-in is awarded at the point it crossed the line. The throw-in is awarded to the team that didn’t touch the ball last. If the throw-in is not taken properly, let it go, teach proper technique later. Let the players play with a minimum of interruption. Keep the game moving and fun.
A corner kick is awarded when the whole of the ball passes over the goal line, either on the ground or in the air, having last touched a player of the defending team, and a goal is not scored. A player from the offensive team will kick the ball in from the corner of the field. All defensive players must be be at least 5 yards away.
A goal kick is awarded when the whole of the ball passes over the goal line, either on the ground or in the air, having last touched a player of the attacking team, and a goal is not scored. A player from the defensive team will take the kick from the corner of the goalie box. All offensive players must be at least 5 yards away.
