Information

Grassroots is a U4 to U8 initiation program, where children can learn the basics and joys of soccer on Saturday mornings for twelve weeks from June 11 to August 27. If your child turns four years old in the reference year (between January 1st and December 31st) he/she will be able to be part of the U4 group. One hour sessions on Saturday mornings allows players to improve their motor skills, attention span and learn the first rules of a team sport. The bilingual component of our program has made its reputation.

 

The CDC U9-U12 program is based on the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA) Long Term Player Development (LTPD) plan. The CDC is a new training program that focuses on individual player development through various drills and games. The games will be played in a group format.  This means that all groups in the same category should play their game of the week on the same day.  Ideally, games will also be played at the same location against groups from the same club.  The schedule will be set by the  Association régional de soccer  (ARS).

The competitive program offers participation in a competitive league for players aged 13 to 21. The players are supervised by certified volunteer coaches and have practices and a game once a week during the summer season (usually late May to early September). This program is for the player who wants to improve his skills during his competitive season or just for the fun of the game. Everyone is welcome to play; no assessment is performed or required.

What to expect

For the Grassroots program

 

Introductory soccer program for ages 4 to 8 starting June 11 and ending August 27 for twelve Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on the Morin-Heights soccer field (647, ch. Du Village).  Once registration is complete, check your emails a few weeks before the season starts for all the details.

 

For the competitive program  

Depending on the registrations received for each age group, this determines the group and assigned coach for each player. Teams are registered with ARSL at the end of March each year and in May the club better understands the needs of each age group. At that time, coaches and assistant coaches will communicate with parents regarding scheduled practice and game times. As each coach and assistant coach is a volunteer, training hours are planned according to their availability. Usually there are practice sessions once a week and one game a week.

Volunteers - coaches, referees

Our programs are run by volunteers. Coaches are usually parent volunteers who have either played soccer, coached other sports, or are willing to get involved and learn. For those who wish to become a coach, the club offers the required training through weekend courses at the ARSL.

High school students or adults with soccer experience or not can also get involved by becoming an assistant coach or by serving as a referee or linesman. Those interested in applying for a volunteer position should contact the Technical Director at info@fcmorinheights.com.
