Great Falls Reston Soccer Club

House Soccer 6U-10U

Great Falls Reston Soccer’s House program includes players in the 6U to 10U age groups. Each of these age groups is coached by parents and volunteers. Girls and boys are mixed in the 6U age group. Beginning at 7U, girls have the option of playing with the boys or playing in a “girls only” program.

The 6U program is offered once a week on Saturday afternoons. The first half of each hour long weekly session is spent on games and drills similar to those in the Me & My Ball program. The second half of the session involves the playing of small-sided soccer games against other teams in the league. The emphasis is on maximizing the time each individual player has on the ball while introducing the concept of scoring goals and facing an opponent. During these sessions, each volunteer coach is paired with a professional soccer trainer. This insures that the quality of the sessions is high while providing hands on training for our volunteer coaches.

Starting at 7U, the program expands to include two 1-hour long sessions every week. This typically includes a team practice and a game on either Saturday morning (generally between 8am and noon) or Sunday afternoon (generally between 12-6pm). These sessions are conducted by volunteer parents and coaches.

As the players mature and develop, more complexity is introduced to the sessions and games. In U6, the games are played on smaller fields with pug goals in a 4v4 format where the coaches roll balls back into play. At 7U, we expand the size of the field a bit and continue a 4v4 format. Throw-ins, goal kicks, and corner kicks are introduced at 8U. By 9U, our teams are playing on a much larger field, with traditional goals, goalies, a 7v7 format, and referees applying the laws of the game. Teamwork, tactics, positions, and passing concepts becoming more and more prominent as the players mature and the field size expands. Nevertheless, our primary focus is, and should be, on development of technical skills and player creativity. 

To supplement the coaching offered by our volunteers, Great Falls Reston Soccer offers a “Soccer Academy” during the week where all the players in the House program are invited to receive additional coaching from GFRSC’s professional trainers with a focus on developing technical soccer skills. Academy is offered on either Tuesday or Wednesday evening and requires a separate registration and payment. 

Players will need to wear tennis shoes or cleats, shin guards, and comfortable athletic clothing to practices and their GFR uniform to games. They should bring a ball and a full water bottle to each session.
