Child & Youth Program Descriptions

Please note that all summer 2021 programs are co-ed and will be offered one night per week to meet Covid protocols. Youngest age groups require a parent participate on-field.

 

Timbits U4 & U5
The youngest soccer divisions are co-ed and know as the Timbits across Canada. The "Learn to Play" divisions are designed to be an early introduction to soccer, the field, and ball control. The series of activities are designed to keep these age groups moving and developing ball skills, and learning body co-ordination, teamwork, and a love of sport.

It's Parent & Tot "Learn to Play" because parents are welcome and encouraged to get on the field and participate in the skills, games, and activities to learn with their child and join in the play. Having Mom or Dad on the field makes children feel more comfortable participating in a new group activity.

Players meet once per week at the Fields of Uxbridge for an evening that includes lots of fun activities and games followed by a short 3v3 scrimmage on a partial field. Timbits players have the option to register on a choice of night for a once a week soccer program. Program Duration: 30-45 minutes

U6 Timbits 
This is a co-ed league on a small field. Teams will start the evening with a coached practice session and end with an organized game with a coach official as referee. Evenings are designed to increase agility, balance, coordination, and speed, but first and foremost - to be fun.

Games will be played in a 3v3 format with no goal keeper. The non-competitive format encourages children to take risks, learn to work as a team, and develop great sportsmanship. Program Duration:60 minutes

U8 Recreational 
At this age teams are divided by gender and age groups are combined to include players turning 7 and turning 8 in the calendar year.

Teams will start the evening with a coached practice session and end with an organized game with a referee. Program Duration: 75 minutes

Practice sessions continue to focus on agility, balance, coordination, speed, and FUN.  5v5 games encourage youth to be aware of and understand the positions of other players on the field. Goal keepers are introduced, adding new challenges for developing minds. No scores or standings are kept so that kids can play without unnecessary pressure to “win”.

U10 Recreational 
Teams are divided by gender and age groups are combined to include players turning 9 and turning 10 in the calendar year.

Teams are at the field twice a week and will have a scheduled practice night and a game night. Coached practice sessions are provided by both Club staff coaches and volunteer co-coaches. Program Duration:50 minutes per night

Youth will play 7v7 games on a mini field with a referee and goal keepers. Repetition of basic skills remains essential to developing technical excellence. Coaches are also able to develop knowledge of soccer plays and rules, and to encourage sportsmanship at this age. All players are to be given an even amount of time in each position to help them develop a strong sense of the game. No scores or standings are kept. The focus is on fun & smart, strategic soccer rather than wins and losses.

North Durham Soccer Interlock League

(recreational)

NOTE: The North Durham Soccer Interlock League was formed a number of years ago to expand the base of soccer players and address the smaller population of teens in the northern communities of Durham Region While the Uxbridge Soccer Club likes to maintain single gender divisions for the NDSI age groups, programs are dependent upon adequate enrollment. If enrollment is not sufficient to create single gender divisions, these age divisions will be co-ed to ensure that all teens have an opportunity to play.

The NDSI League also collaborates with teams each year to arrange travel dates to play other Durham soccer clubs as a way to add to the soccer experience and camaraderie for these age groups.

U12 Division 
Starting at age 11, our Recreational League joins with the Scugog Soccer Association's Recreational League in order to maintain good division size. This cooperative effort is called the North Durham Soccer Interlock. 

Sessions are scheduled in Uxbridge AND Port Perry, with frequency based on registrant residency. Practices and games are held on 2 separate nights each week. We work to schedule all teams from a division at the same facility on a given night as much as possible so that it is easier to carpool with friends regardless of team placement. Program Duration:70 minutes per night

On game night, youth will play 9v9 on a mid-size field with referees and goal keepers. All youth play an even amount of time in each position to help them develop a strong sense of the game. Position development and skills for specific positions are introduced. Standings are not kept in the U12 division in order to keep the focus the development of higher skills and strategic play from game to game. 

U15 & 16 Plus Divisions
These divisions in the North Durham Soccer Interlock provide older teens with the opportunity to continue to develop their soccer skills and enjoy the fitness and friendship that soccer provides. Games are played either in Uxbridge or Port Perry with one game and one practice per week. We work to schedule all teams from a division at the same facility on a given night as much as possible so that it is easier to carpool with friends regardless of team placement. Program Duration:70 minutes per night (U15) and 90 minutes per night (16+)

These divisions play full field soccer and closely follow FIFA rules. The focus is on fun, fair play, sportsmanship and further skill development with a little extra challenge. The player development approach instills the concept of playing soccer for life-long fitness.

Ontario Soccer's Long Term Player Development Pathways
