Palos Verdes Region 10 "U5" Program
Palos Verdes AYSO U5 Program
Our Under 5 program is conducted in
accordance with the AYSO National U-5 Program Guidelines. We offer the popular Jamboree
One with One program. Jamboree One with
One is the combination of two different formats that provide the best introduction
to soccer for our youngest players. In
AYSO soccer, a Jamboree means that the teams are formed on a weekly basis
depending upon how many players attend a given session. One with One means that each player will have
a parent working with them on the field.
Master Coaches lead each session. The
Master Coaches introduce a game or activity that will practice a certain skill
or part of the game using explanation and demonstration. Each pair (player/parent) then attempt the
activity while the Master Coaches circulate between the pairs providing
specific help so that the activities are performed as intended. After a suitable amount of time, the Master
Coaches bring the players and parents back together as a group and recap before
introducing the next activity. Each session ends with about a 20 minute short
sided game with three to five players on each side.
Master Coaches are U.K. International AYSO approved instructors. These instructors are current and former
college or semiprofessional soccer players from the United Kingdom who have years
of formal player development training and have done extensive training in
jamboree style soccer instruction.
player in the U-5 division receives a uniform (jersey, shorts and socks) and his
or her own size three soccer ball.
Parents provide shin guards and footwear (cleats are recommended). All uniforms are the same except for the
numbers. Each week before the game portion begins, players are divided into
groups of 3 to 5 and then play commences on one of the various fields set up
for each session. One team on each field
wears pinnies (colored vests). The kids
can play with different teammates each week.
week, two or three parents supervise each field in order to keep the game moving. The game parents determine when the ball is
out of play and guide restarts, interfering as little as possible. All other parents should cheer positively and
should refrain from “coaching” from the sideline. We do not keep score, but goals by both teams
should be enthusiastically celebrated by everyone!
