The Micro program is a fun recreational program for children in Kindergarten & First Grade. Medway Youth Soccer offers a Micro Boys program and Micro Girls program. The goal in Micro is to continue to build on the core fundamentals introduced in Instructional, while also focusing on skills such as passing, shooting, and spacing. Teams consist of a mix of Kindergarten and First Grade players and practice together on Saturday mornings. The curriculum is jointly developed with the New England Revolution Academy, with lesson plans provided to our volunteer parent-coaches each week. Teams are split into two groups for small sided 3v3 or 4v4 games with no goalies on Sundays. To maximize the number of ball touches for each child, one group generally consists of more developed players (usually the First Graders) and the other of more beginner-type players (usually the Kindergarteners). Those groups then play against the other team's comparable groups, each on their own field. This ensures that all players are able to have fun and progress in their soccer development.
When: Teams in the Micro program practice for 1 hour on Saturday mornings, with games on Sunday afternoons. The program runs for 9 weeks.
Where: Micro uses both the upper and lower Oakland fields (Lower Oakland Fields A-B; Upper Oakland Fields C-F)
Cost and Equipment: The Micro program is $110, which includes a t-shirt. Players are required to wear shin guards and cleats are optional.
