Summer Program

WHUSA offers a summer program of soccer development for youth ages 4-20 in the West Hants area on fields in the communities of Mount Uniacke, Brooklyn, Windsor, and Falmouth.

Our Tier 2 program is designed to develop our kids locally while providing the standard foundation of recreational soccer that allows our youth to pursue higher development through our regional and provincial affiliations.

 

We are always looking for player, coaches, and volunteers, for the following age groups:

U6 Co-ed 

U8 Boys/Girls 

U10 Boys/Girls

U 12 Boys/Girls

U 13 Boys/Girls 

U 15 Boys/Girls 

U 17 Boys/Girls

U 21 Boys/Girls 

 

 

 

U8 Boys/Girls - Monday/Wednesday @6:30pm

U8 follows the Fundamentals step in the Canada Soccer Pathway.

 

Q: What is included in my registration?

A: Fees cover  games  for the season.  This fee also covers field maintenance and practice/game equipment.

Although each coach has some balls are available for practice, players are asked to bring their own ball.  

For U8, this is a Size 3 ball - same as used in U6 if your child played in that level last year.

 

Q: When does it start?  How long does it go?

A: We typically get kids on the fields around the end of  May and go to 2nd or 3rd week of August.

 

Q: How are teams picked?

A: At this age, there are no try-outs or selections and all players are divided up based purely on the numbers that balance to the geographically community.   

However, in the event that a community has too few or too many players to ensure equitable field time, players will be shifted to the team based in the next nearest community (i.e. Falmouth to Windsor, Mount Uniacke to Brooklyn, etc.).

 

Q: Where do we practice? 

A: Practices for U8 are held at their home field for games. 

For each community this would be:

Mount Uniacke - Mount Uniacke School

Brooklyn -Brooklyn Elementry

Windsor - Avon View School

Falmouth - Eldridge Road Community Park

 

Q: Where/when do we play?

U8 plays in a Inter-Club league with the other teams from WHUSA.

There is typically a league game once a week on one of the practice nights

There are two one-day tournament on a Saturday

a) a kick-off tournament in early June

b) a season ending tournament in mid August

Check the website calendar for the date/location.

 

Q: Who's my Child's coach?

A: All of our coaches are volunteers and the coaches do not get assigned until after the team selection process is complete.  Typically your coach will be a parent or other volunteer you know from your local community.  Each of our coaches has been provided training and materials approved by Soccer Nova Scotia.

Your coach will contact you by email as soon as they are provided the roster.
