CFC U11-U18 DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

Our Development Program is geared towards players interested at playing at more competitive level. Player evaluations are held each spring and tiered teams are created. Typically development teams train twice weekly with a game on the weekend.

Starting at the U11 age group all teams are entered in the various leagues throughout the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland and will travel out of Chilliwack for away games. U11’s and U12’s play 8-a-side on a smaller “Super 8” sized field with smaller goals. Once players reach the U13 age group they jump up to full-field soccer and play 11-a-side.


U8 PROSPECTS PROGRAM

From age groups U4 to U7 our young soccer players play in a number of recreational programs that our club offers. As players enter the U8 age group they are provided the option of participating in our Prospects program. This program is geared more towards their development and the practices have a more structured look to them. The sessions take place once weekly and are run by CFC Staff Coaches with an emphasis on development all the basic fundamentals such as passing, receiving, dribbling, turning and shooting. The goal being to develop young players who are comfortable and confident with the ball at their feet.

While they do not play in weekend games, our U8 Prospects players may often get the opportunity to play in exhibition matches against U8 teams from our partner clubs in the Fraser Valley. U8 Players are also permitted to register in our clubs recreational program to allow for a second weekly practice with their team and weekend games. The programs are set up so that they do not conflict with each other. The program runs from September to March.

U9/10 PROSPECTS PROGRAM

Players choosing to participate in Prospects U9 and U10 will be restricted to this program only and not be permitted to participate in the Recreational program also. Participating players will train twice weekly. Once per week with CFC Staff Coaches and once per week with their team coach. They will also play regularly on weekends, although not necessarily every weekend. Some weekends they may play two games. Their games would be against teams from our partner clubs in the Fraser Valley. Training will continue to focus on basic fundamentals as with U8, but with an additional focus on positional play and team formation. The program runs from September to March.

The Prospects program is geared towards boys and girls who aspire to play at a high level. While keeping the sessions fun, our staff encourage players to be focused and eager to learn. Players are evaluated regularly by staff to determine their suitability to the program. Attendance is taken at each Prospects session to ensure that players are committed to their development by attending regularly.
