Pennsville Soccer Association - Spring 2018 In-Town Programs.
Registration is open for Spring 2018.

1. The PSA Spring In-Town Programs will be a combination of instruction and match play every week. We will continue to separate the children by age/grade level to the greatest extent practicable and we will consider requests from families with children playing in multiple age groups. Older children are considered on a case by case basis. The season lasts eight weeks and will start on April 7th. No matches/sessions will be scheduled on Memorial Day Weekend.
U8/U7/U6/U5/U4


2. Our 2017 Spring U8/U7/U6/U5/U4 (Birth Year 2009 and younger) program will be a combination of instruction, followed by small sided matches every session. The children will be divided into individual, age appropriate groups (for instructional purposes), each with its’ own coach/manager. The children will receive 40-minutes of soccer instruction followed by two ten-minute “matches” each week, playing with children at their age, development, and/or skill level. We anticipate that the sessions will be held on Saturdays, from 9 to 10 AM (U6/U5/U4) and 10 to 11 AM (U8/U7). Parents, please plan to join your player on the field for the instructional portion of the session. Your child will have more fun (and will learn more). You’ll have fun too. Registration cost is $50 per child.
U10/U9 Travel Transition

3. Our 2018 Spring U10/U9 (Birth Years 2008 and 2007) program will include a dedicated, instructional practice session for small sided play (7v7 including a keeper). Weekly practices will be established (day/time TBD by the individual coach) and the children will participate in 7v7 matches match each week. Matches will be played both inter-squad and with neighboring communities. Currently the participating communities are Franklinville, Harrison, South Harrison, Swedesboro and Woodstown. Matches consist of two 25-minute times and will be divided between home and away. Matches are played on Sundays, usually after 12:30 PM. The goal of Travel Transition is to improve individual player skills, introduce positional awareness, and familiarize players with the specific responsibilities of the Keeper (goalie) as the players move from 4v4 developmental play to 7v7 Travel Soccer. Registration cost is $50 per child.

4. PSA needs coach/manager volunteers for all age groups. No soccer experience is necessary. PSA will provide the individual practice plans to the coach/managers and will provide additional instruction for those new to, or relearning the Game. PSA has a good library of instructional videos and manuals. We will loan these out to our coaches so they can view and become comfortable with the individual skills, drills, and techniques that are part of youth soccer development. At these ages the coach/manager needs a willingness to assist the children, tie an occasional shoelace, and always encourage them to have fun.
