MINI ROOTS U5/U6: 2018 + 2019

CSA Wayne's MINI ROOTS program is designed to introduce young players to new skills and build the foundation of their future soccer careers, whilst growing their love of the sport: with an emphasis on FUN and incorporating the ball, this program offers basic training and small sided games for kids who enjoy the game, learning fundamentals, and playing in small sided games.

CSA Wayne recognizes the importance of teaching basic skill development and ball familiarity at a young age, and our curriculum has a proven history with many players graduating from our ROOTS programs, and going on to play at the highest level of soccer in NJ.

Combining a focus on individual development within our practice sessions during the week, and then providing the opportunity to learn the habits and movements learned in game format 3v3/4v4, provides a fantastic foundation which will help enhance any future development.

MINI ROOTS is for all young players no matter of ability (must be age appropriate) as at this age, no one knows who will be a future soccer star. 

Here's what to expect:

  • The focus is on individual player development, and the team(s) are NOT entered into a local league.
  • Players participate for 8 weeks, with one 60 minute practice sessions per week. (Day/ Time varies per season due to field permits)
  • Players will compete in mini-games on Saturdays morning, with one 60 minute games format 3v3/4v4 sessions per week. (Locations, and times are TBD based on permits but will be between 9am and 1pm in Wayne NJ)
