Jamboree U05 Program
Our Jamboree U05 program for the Fall 2016/Spring 2017 season is for players that were 4 years of age as of July 31st, 2016.
The U05 player activity (practice and game) will be on Saturdays from April 8th to June 3rd (not on April 29th and not on May 27th) as follows:
Just a reminder, but at U05 all players must attend with an adult who will be their practice partner / coach for the day. AYSO provides experienced coaches to oversee the activities, provide guidance to parents and players, and keep things on schedule. The adult partners need not wear shin guards, but should be dressed appropriately to kick a soccer ball with their player. The coaches will demonstrate a technique and then the Parent-Child will practice the technique for a few minutes, while the coaches observe and make suggestions for improvements, etc. We'll go through a number of techniques over about 20 - 25 minutes, and then we'll take a break and get ready for the game.
Kids won't meet as a group until the first game day At that time, they'll need to be ready with the five soccer S's:
Shoes - No requirement on special shoes at this age group, you can wear cleats or regular tennis shoes as you prefer. The big difference is that tennis shoes have thicker soles and that makes it a little harder to get their feet under the ball. If you choose to wear cleats just make sure you get a pair that does not have a "toe cleat". That's the big difference between soccer shoes, and shoes designed for other sports.
