U5 (2012 Birth Year) Saturday Only: 
Players participate in a 40-minute coaching academy led by current Stow-Munroe Falls High School players. Players are organized by a team Parent Coach and taken through a 3 or 4 station academy working on the basic skills of soccer and body movement. The basic skills are presented in fun games designed to acquaint the players with social interaction and the physical coordination of soccer. 20 minutes of small-sided games of 3v3 are used to introduce the players to the game, a team, and scoring goals! If a player is showing advanced skill/maturity they will be asked to join the kindergarten age group in order to challenge them. This is always presented to the parents/guardians of the child prior to the move and will need their approval.  

U6 (2011 Birth Year):  
Players participate in a 60-minute weekday practice session led by the Stow Soccer Club Coaching Staff and assisted by the team's Parent Coach(s). Players are organized by their Parent Coach and taken through a 3 or 4 station academy working on the basic skills of soccer. The basic skills are presented, by the Stow Soccer Club Coach Staff, in fun games designed to acquaint the players with social interaction and the physical coordination of soccer.

On Saturdays players will play 2-4 15-20 minute small-sided games in a fun environment led by their team Parent Coaches. Small-sided games are 3v3 with no goal keepers. 

U7, U8 and U9 (2008 - 2010 Birth Year): Players participate in a 60-minute weekday practice session led by the Stow Soccer Club Coaching Staff and   assisted by the team's Parent Coach(s).

Recommended Equipment

Soccer Shorts -
 Any color, black is predominant. These can be found at Dick's Sporting Goods, Soccer One, NC Soccer or other sporting goods stores. 

Shin Guards - 
These are MANDATORY safety equipment.  Shin guards should be worn UNDER the soccer socks to hold them in place while running, sliding, and kicking.  We will not allow a player to play without shin guards due to insurance regulations.  These can be found at Dick's Sporting Goods, Play-It-Again Sports, Soccer One, NC Soccer and many online retailers and other sporting goods stores.

Soccer Ball - 
These are also MANDATORY.  Size 4 for most players in the Saturday Academy.  U5 players do not need a ball. A size 3 ball is provided for use.

Soccer Cleats - 
Important.  Sneakers don't work well on wet grass. Baseball and Football cleats have a toe cleat that soccer cleats do not. This toe cleat is dangerous to other players in soccer.  Make sure the cleats are made for soccer with no cleat on the toe.  These can be found at Dick's Sporting Goods, Play-It-Again Sports, Soccer One, www.soccer.com, NC Soccer and other sporting goods stores.
  
Jersey - 
Stow Soccer Club will provide a Stow Soccer Club team colored shirt, which should be worn at each session.  It is helpful to layer under the shirt so that the players shirt color is easily visible to coaches and other players. 

Water bottle - 
Did you know that water is as important to warming the body on cold days as it is for cooling the body on warm days? Make sure your player has plenty of water to last 75 minutes.   Clearly mark your child's name on their water bottle.  You will notice that most of us shop at the same stores and buy the same sale water bottles! 

Helpful Hints

All players should dress appropriately for the weather. Layers are recommended.  In case of cooler weather, it is easier to take off the extra clothing as opposed to being chilled.

The program is held even during rain showers, provided the temperature is relatively comfortable. The only time a session will be cancelled is during a lightning storm or at the discretion of the Program Director (i.e. snow/water on fields, etc.).

Please arrive at least 10 minutes before each session so that we may be able to start on time. 

Please put your player’s name on his/her soccer ball in several places in Magic Marker so that a forgotten ball can be given back to the player.
Please make sure your player has all clothing and equipment before leaving the park.

We recommend that each player spend at least 15 minutes 2-3 times a week practicing at home what we cover in the training session in order to become a better player. 

WE NEED PARENT VOLUNTEERS!
We need interested parents to help assist the Program Director at the sessions; no background in the game is necessary. If interested, please indicate it on the player registration form.
