Before the 5U Jamboree Program, we did not have a program specifically for 4-year olds. Some 4-year-old children were put on teams with children who were 5 and 6 years old and, no surprise, there was a big difference in attention span and abilities. We have now implemented a program just for 4-year olds that has been successful in other cities across the country. Due to the age of the children the Jamboree program does not conform to the more traditional "team" format as the older children do. There are no practices and no team assignments. Instead, the skill training (practice) and games are incorporated into the weekly Jamboree sessions held every Saturday morning of the season.

Learning soccer techniques and tactics is impractical and unnecessary for kids of this age level. However, that doesn't mean we don't teach kids to play soccer! Kicking the ball in a given direction, running and moving the ball with your feet, stopping the ball without using your hands, shooting at the goal and blocking shots: this is all great fun.

These are the basic elements of soccer that we aim to teach children by leading them in various exercises and by simply letting them play the game. However, we consider it just as important that they learn the following skills in our program:

  • Interacting comfortably with a group of one's peers
  • Working together as a team toward a common goal
  • Dealing with both victory and defeat
  • Respecting opponents
  • Accepting and obeying the rules of the game

In addition, your child will:

  • Develop his/her own style of handling the ball
  • Learn how to move in a variety of situations
  • Improve his/her coordination (mobility, agility, reaction speed)
  • Have FUN playing the game of soccer and being part of a team

Don't be surprised if we are doing exercises that may seem like they have nothing to do with soccer. Developing basic skills like climbing, balancing, hopping, jumping and so on play a valuable role in the long-term development of soccer skills. However, Jamboree sessions will center around the game of soccer.

Of course, we will also play matches against other teams! But for all of us, the point should not be to win as many games as possible. We want every child to be physically active and having fun playing the game. Preschool children are not good at sticking to assigned positions or duties. For them, the drive to just play is much stronger. And we don't want to restrict them to positions yet anyway, just as you wouldn't want to decide yet what your child should be when he grows up.

Children learn best when they can experience playing the game without worrying about what position they should be playing! At this age level, we only distinguish between attacking in one direction and defending the other. Positions are fluid and changing as the game goes on. Your child should be moving forward to attack when their team has the ball and dropping back to defend when the other team has the ball. The only tactical objectives we want them to learn is to score and to prevent the other team from scoring.

During the Saturday morning sessions, all children must have a parent present during the entire session. Players do not have to come at the same time slot each Saturday, you are free to choose the most convenient session time from week-to-week. It is critical to the success of the program that all parents remain positive and encouraging during the session.

We are a volunteer-based program so we need coaches. Having you participate as an assistant coach in 5U Jamboree gives you soccer knowledge and hopefully the confidence to become a coach in the U6 program the following year. The girls and boys will get different colored uniforms that will be theirs to keep. They will treasure this first jersey for a very long time.

Region 111 is committed to making this program a success. The staff brings to the table many years of coaching experience at many levels, including coaching our own children from the same young age! We have assembled a great team, and with your support the season will be a great success.

Program Details

Session Times: 8:30a | 9:45a | 11:00a

The objective of this program is to provide young players and their parents with a pressure-free introduction to the beautiful game of soccer. At this age players should be exposed to soccer by playing simple, fun activities and games that require little to no practice, and a minimal time commitment.

The program allows players to discover the game for themselves, while parents are given a foundation on which to build and grow into future AYSO coaches, referees and administrators.

Typical Saturday sessions will include:

  • Coach demos to prepare the coaches to run the day's activities
  • Splitting players into groups, "teams", and assigning them to coaches
  • Training activities and skill development games
  • 3 vs 3 soccer game

There will be many games going on at once, with the session coaches acting as the referees for each game. Their main role is to keep the games organized and fun for all the players. All other parents are encouraged to cheer positively and refrain from coaching (giving directions) from the sideline.

This is the time for the kids to play LET THEM!
