Overview of the 6U Instructional Program (check birth year chart for eligibility)

The Amherst Soccer Association provides a 6U Instructional program. The sessions are held on Saturday mornings for an hour during outdoor during the spring and fall and indoor during the winter.  No practices will be held.  See age matrix for birth date range.

At Registration, you will choose the hour to participate on Saturday mornings.  Each hour is limited and you are expected to attend only the hour you registered for.  No need to contact us or expect any messages before we start as once you receive a confirmation that you registered and paid, you just show up ready to play prepared with the items below.

League Schedule: This sessions run 6 weeks.  All players should bring a size #3 soccer ball and must wear shin guards under soccer socks and bring a water bottle.  . 

Eligibility: Child must be born between the dates (6U only) indicated on the age matrix.  Any child born before these or after these dates are not eligible for this program.

Snacks: At the 6U level, parents should bring their own child’s drink/snack. No "team snack" will be provided. Please bring your own water or sports drink.

Teams: We will not have formal teams, leagues or scorekeeping. Soccer will be geared toward having fun, socializing, with a little learning about the game of soccer. We respect and understand the attention span and physical limitations of the children in this age range (those turning 5 or 6 during the current soccer year). This program is not about making polished players, but instead, it is our hope that the kids will have FUN, become a bit more fit, and learn about themselves and others through the game of soccer. We will be instructing the children in basic rules of the game and the fundamental skills of the sport.  The Program is run by our experienced Coaching Director and helpers.  It will consist of small skill group activities and then some simple game-like activities to give the little ones a chance to use what they learned and score goals.  

At this age level, A RESPONSIBLE ADULT IS REQUIRED TO STAY DURING ALL SESSIONS since we don't have the capability to contact you in the case of a problem with your child.   Please keep this in mind when registering.
