Rimbey House League (U5-U9) Soccer Program Details
Rimbey Minor Soccer Association (RMSA) is excited to announce that starting in the 2023 season the house league will be moving to a new format using the “Preferred Training Model” (PTM).
This PTM model has been proven to enhance player development and retention AND has a higher success rate in engaging and retaining volunteer coaches.
The PTM model allows RMSA to have Tuesday nights focused on training and Thursday nights as game night.
Training nights will be setup using a “station rotation” approach (per age group) where volunteer coaches will pick one to two “stations” and run the drills for the season. The players will be split into groups and will rotate through the stations on training night. RMSA has a Technical Coordinator (lead coach) that works with the CASA Technical Director and will support the rest of the coaches through training, providing technical material and support throughout the season to coaches.
Stations include the following and optimal group sizes (per age groups) will range from 6-8 players:
Game nights will be setup where players warm up (10 minutes) and then play games as follows. The coaches from the training night will support the teams on game night:
