PlayON Program

In 2018, we launched a new development program for kids 6U - 8U called the PlayOn Series. Our focus with this age group is creating a player-centered environment that is much more conducive to learning and experiencing through game-based play, and less focused on instructing a kid's every move and decision. We're coaching kids by helping them learn and discover the great game of soccer, but more importantly, also helping them learn to LOVE it.

How it Works

In the Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring, players participate in 1 Training Day a week and 1 Play Day a week, plus they play against other clubs during Jamboree Days.

√  Training Days: one hour trainings run by licensed Meta Coaches include educational and fun activities to teach skills. 

√  Play Days: small-sided games of 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4 to develop emotional, technical, tactical and physical skills needed to rip around the field.

√  Pool Play: Training Days and Play Days are a pool format, versus players being assigned to a specific team. In pool play, all players in an age group or gender will train together and be matched per skill level. 

√ Jamboree Days: 6U - 8U players participate in two Jamborees Days each season against other clubs. The Jamborees are a round robin format of small-sided games and short-timed where players test their skills against other club teams. 

Fall and Spring Play: A flexible game format built for young players, with 2v2 and 3v3 and progressing them to 4v4.

√  Winter Session: 6 weeks of indoor Training and Play Days at the Utah Athletic Center, 51 River Bend Way, North Salt Lake, UT 84054.
