Birth Years for
U5 to U6
The IGNITE program is divided into boys' and girls' divisions, which play both fall and spring seasons. Each season affords the opportunity to participate in about seven to ten games over the course of an 8 to 12 week season. The program mirrors the Recreational program of years past.
Each team usually holds 2 one-hour practice sessions every week. The teams play what is called "Small-sided games", which consist of either 3v3/4v4 with no goalkeepers. The game is played in quarters and substitutions are made at the quarter.
Individual players can follow our Soccer Starts at Home curriculum, created by Tom Byers and our partners at Houston Dynamo Academy, to compliment their experience at the field.
We have two main values in the U5-U6 IGNITE program:
- understanding the basics of the game and the utilization of basic technical skills and ball control.
Creating an environment where players and parents can fall in love with the beautiful game and have a positive experience within a team community
Passionate Volunteer Coaches follow club curriculum with the help of experienced coaches and age group directors.
