New For 2015 - The Retreat Line
Submitted By Jason Kaspersma on Wednesday, May 13, 2015
To allow our young players to learn and gain confidence in how to play the ball out from the back and build an attack, as opposed to the goalkeeper kicking it aimlessly up the field, the concept of the retreat line has been introduced in mini soccer (U4 – U8) for our 2015 Season

To see young goalkeepers aimlessly boot the ball up the field in the "hope" that one of his or her teammates gets the ball is not effective in producing skilled confident players who love to play.  Players, Coaches, Referee’s & Parents will be introduced to this style of play during our 2015 season.  


Coaches are encouraged to work with their players on the developmental benefits of the Retreat Line, and to incorporate “Playing out from the Back” in the playing style of their teams. Remember, mistakes will happen but brave coaches and players will look at this as part of the development process and keep working with the confidence that improvement will come in time.


Further Information packages and sessions will be introduced at a later date.  For more information on the Retreat Line, please visit the following link: Get to know the Retreat line
