OMNI U-10 Soccer ‘20

What’s coming…

Soccer is a great team sport to pickup and develop in. At these ages we are starting to make more concerted passes (I know!), understanding our place in the field and how our contribution to the team success (and failure) affects others. Soccer is athletic, but not rough. It’s as much a physical game as it is a mind effort, and it creates life-long brain connections on control and discipline, teamwork and individual skills.

Training Sessions:

Training sessions will start on March 9 and be held weekly on Mondays at the Morrison YMCA fields in 9405 Bryant Farms Rd, Charlotte from 4:00–5:00pm. Kids will be transported there directly from school in the Omni Bus, and be picked up by you right after.

  • Water Bottle
  • Shinguards (please check that last year’s are still comfortable if applicable)
  • Cleats (Idem as above. Shoes should fit snug, but not tight)
  • Shorts without pockets
  • Ponytails for kids with long hair, to avoid distractions.
  • Remove all jewelry, for their safety.
  • Calisthenics (5 min): with focus on speed and endurance, building the muscles and reflexes needed for a healthy growing body.
  • Foot skills (10 min): The basics that, through repetition, help build confidence and tools to overcome in-game situations, including shooting.
  • Tactics (20 min): With a tactical whiteboard and focused drills, we’ll learn the basics of throw-ins, goal — kicks, corners, which happen often during a game and that help gain competitive advantage.
  • Team Skills (20 min): Drills for passing, building play and team communication
  • Values Debrief (5 min): To close it up, we’ll talk about the values learned, and on-game examples. We’ll recognize respect, effort, and teamwork.


Games will be held in the same place as trainings, in the Morrison YMCA. Dates will be sent by Dusty Crooke and we’ll send reminders ahead of time.

  • Uniform (will be provided. Dusty will send more information soon)
