Suburban Simbas (Mini Program) - Summer Season

Program Description:

The goal of our Suburban Simbas program is to provide the players with a fun and social experience that begins to grow their love for soccer. Most players in this program are exploring the game for the first time and we hope they enjoy it, pick up a few basic skills, and start to form a relationship with the beautiful game. 

The sessions have the kids moving between athletic building activities, soccer skills exercises and small-sided games on a rotational basis. The format maximizes the concentration of the kids, gives them lots of important touches on the ball, and is also a lot of FUN!

NEED TO KNOW

Need financial assistance?

** We are a non-profit soccer club and we strive to balance low program fees (as low as possible) with superior coaching and training opportunities. If our fees present a barrier for your player, we encourage you to contact Suburban FC at admin@suburbanfc.ca to discuss payment options. There are also opportunities for financial support available through KidSport and Jumpstart ** 

 

What happens if there is bad weather and field closures? 

** Unfortunately due to time constraints and COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no make-up sessions or pro-rated refunds due to poor weather / field closure. Field closures and extreme weather conditions are beyond our control. We will always strive to ensure that programming is offered when we have access to fields and it does not jeopardize the safety of our players. Any cancellations will be clearly communicated via TeamSnap.  **
