Player enjoyment and skill development meet through the combination of skills practices with fun, soccer-style games focused on maximizing the time each player has with the ball. Players are placed on teams of up to six players and meet once per week each Saturday following Labor Day for ten weeks.
There are four separate divisions: U5 Boys, U5 Girls, U6 Boys, and U6 Girls.
The first 30 minutes of each session is a “practice” and focuses on coordination and skill development. The second half of the session consists of a small-sided 3v3 game (without goalkeepers) which consists of four 8-minute quarters. Volunteer coaches lead the players through the weekly skill sessions and games. All games are held at Coyote Crossing Park: 3495 Rosincress Drive, San Ramon CA 94582.
Coaches are selected by the Development Director from parent volunteers who express interest. Volunteering to coach offers a rewarding opportunity to work with children and build their skills and self-esteem. All coaches and assistant coaches are required to register for the club and to get fingerprinted for background check (Get Disclosure Form**). SRFC provides support to volunteer coaches by providing coaching curriculum handouts and free coaching clinics beginning in August.
U5 and U6 recreational teams are formed in mid-August and players are assigned to teams by the San Ramon FC staff. U5 and U6 teams are formed mostly at random selection, and every attempt is made at creating a fair, balanced and enjoyable soccer experience for all players. Coaches will notify players of their team placement by August 26th.
