Welcome to Second Grade Soccer!
Second Grade Mites Soccer players are encouraged to continue building their skills without the pressure of score keeping. We don’t keep track of goals and there are no goal keepers. Basic soccer skills are still the focus at second grade including dribbling with changes of direction and trying to control the ball to dribble away from pressure and beat an opponent. Passing and shooting techniques are also developed. The activities used are listed on this page below and have been developed by the Director of Coaching. We are building soccer skills, good sportsmanship, and having fun.
Fall Season: The fall season runs from September 10, 2016 until November 12, 2016.
Spring Season: The spring season starts April 8, 2017 until June 10, 2017. Games will be scheduled for the Memorial Day weekend.
- On Westwood Day Saturday 9/24/2016, instead of regular games on the Sheehan, our Coach Mentoring group PROformance Soccer will run 75 minute soccer skills clinics at the new DEERFIELD School field!
- Clinics will run at the regular time slot for 2nd Grade Girls and another for 2nd Grade Boys
- On Saturday 4/29, the day of the Little League parade, instead of regular games on the Sheehan, our Coach Mentoring group PROformance Soccer will run soccer skills clinics!
