Players born: 2012 & 2013
The Bend FC Future Timbers Academy for U7 - U8 players is designed to be an introduction to the beautiful game, as well as a skill building program for children who already have some soccer experience.
In the Summer season, the Futures will focus on individual skillsets for players instead of team concepts.
Future Timbers does not hold games, however, should be used in conjuction with the recreational Leagues. BURSL in the fall (Bend Parks and Rec) and COSL in the spring (Bend FC Timbers).
The emphasis in our U7-U8 Future Timbers Academy is FUN!
Players will be learning techniques (dribbling, passing, shooting, receiving, etc.) in a fun yet challenging environment. Most of the time there will be no more than 1 to 2 players to a ball, thus emphasizing quantity of touches and ensuring little to no 'standing around' time. With this model, players are constantly moving, constantly involved and constantly being given instruction from PROFESSIONAL coaches who have years of experience working with young children!
The Future Timbers Program is focused on developing the individual player versus the whole team. This program is to help bridge the gap between recreational soccer and the Junior Academy Program. It is encouraged that players continue to play in recreational leagues while increasing their soccer skills with the Future Timbers.
The Futures will feature warm-ups with the ball, footwork and ball mastery skills and 1v1 activities and games!
