This KPSC Inter-Town 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 weekday training session is an hour and a half (with breaks throughout) to focus on foot skills and in-game techniques so that they may utilize them during their Sunday game. These games take place through our partnership with Harborfields. The children not only play against teams from Kings Park but play against teams from Harborfields as well. Games take place at both Cy Donnelly and Harborfields which gives the players and families 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 skills 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 mixed gender team. Every player will wear the standard KPSC intramural 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 types of athletic shoes are recommended. Games are played with 6 field players and 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.
A size 4 ball is used in practice and the game.
The Start of Play:
To start the quarter, 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 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 touchline (sideline) 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 touchline 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 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.
