U7-8 Grassroots

Northern United FC Grassroots (Active Start/ FUNdamentals) Program, are the first two stages of the Long Term Player Development Model (LTPD) which is centered on developing a passion for the game.  This is achieved by creating as many opportunities as possible for every child to touch the ball as often as possible in a stimulating, fun and safe learning environment where the kids are actively engaged with the introduction of basic fundamental skills and understanding of the game. 

Kids will participate in a variety of fun and interactive games, with or without the ball, and increase their confidence as individuals as well as in group interaction.  The aim is to encourage physical literacy (agility, balance, coordination, basic motor skills) and soccer skill development (particularly ball handling and game play) for all players, regardless of their abilities or disabilities.  This along with participation in other sports and physical activities is important for balanced athletic development.   With a mix of exercise and games kids will be given the opportunity to develop social skills and above all have FUN!
