The U4 to U6 programs run once a week for one hour, as per the schedules below.
The emphasis is on fun and allows players to become comfortable with the soccer ball and the basics of soccer. The aim of the program is to interest the child in learning the basic skills of soccer, learning to play as a team, as well as developing interest in sport and physical activity. Everything is supervised and coordinated by a team of volunteer parent-coaches, under the direction of the club’s technical team. Weekly sessions consist of a combination of station-based skill development drills and scrimmages.
The program works on the basis of a cooperative approach. Two volunteer parent coaches will be assigned per team – please complete a volunteer form if you are able to help. All parents are expected to be on the field with their child, to assist the coaches (especially during vacation time) and ensure all runs smoothly. If you have other conflicts, you must delegate the responsibility of your child to another parent. Each parent should be responsible for a maximum of two children.
A Soccer Des Collines /Timbit team uniform will be handed-out at the beginning of the season and should be worn for all activities. All players must return their Timbit jersey at the end of the season. Each player must wear soccer shin pads and soccer cleats. Each player must bring a water bottle and a size-3 soccer ball (will be distributed at the beginning of the season), well marked with a name and phone number.

The U-8 summer program is an extension of the U-6 program, but with increased emphasis on soccer skills, development and game situations. The program progresses from the fun training offered at U4-6, with a view to integrating players into the Soccer Outaouais (SO) leagues from the age of 9. Players will be introduced to all field positions, with players designated as defenders, forwards, and keeper (goalie). At the beginning of the season, scrimmages will consist of 4v4 play to increase touches on the ball. Teams will graduate to 5 against 5 players plus a keeper near the end of June VS The game format is 5-a-side soccer with 4 players and a goalkeeper on the field at all times. The games are non-competitive and the scores are not compiled.
The teams are coached by volunteer parents who are supervised by the U7-U8 director and the Club’s technical director. The schedule includes an hour (or hour and a half hour) practice and a one hour game a week, all for a period of 12 weeks (see schedule below).
In order to provide motivation and challenge to all players, we will try to balance the teams according to ability before the season begins. There will be a mix of skill development sessions, games, and special events. All teams will participate in the U7/U8 Festival, which is a fantastic event, held on the second weekend of July in the Cantley sector.
Basic soccer rules will be applied by referees.
A Soccer Des Collines/Tim Bit uniform will be handed-out before the first game and should be worn for all activities. Each player must wear soccer shin pads covered by knee-length socks and soccer cleats. Each player must bring a water bottle and a size-4 soccer ball (will be distributed at the beginning of the season), well marked with a name and phone number.

In anticipation of their integration into the competitive upper levels, the Club invites the top players in the U8 category to train for an additional session each week, under the supervision the Club’s technical team. Interested players with the necessary technical skills will be able to improve their skills and have the opportunity to compete against a competitive team at the end of the season or to participate in a tournament.
Soccer des Collines offers young players from 9 to 19 years of age the opportunity to play in the Outaouais Regional Soccer League (LRSO), and thus to evolve and be part of more competitive teams. By participating in the evaluation sessions prior to the summer season, players will be able to play with teams of their game levels depending on the number of players registered in each age group.
Division 1 A (competitive)
Division 2 Local (competitive)
Division 3 Local (recreational)
The club encourages teams at these levels to participate in various regional tournaments and out of the region.
Skills development will be the priority of coaches. Everything is supervised and coordinated by volunteer coaches, supervised by a technical team of the Club.
In order not to precipitate the competitive format, the league counts only the results of games starting from category U12.
It should be noted that if a player wants to be part of a competitive team, he or she will have to attend all evaluation sessions and a commitment from parents and players to be present at a minimum. 80% of games and practices (2 per week in Division 1) throughout the season will be required. If the commitment is not possible, the player will be classified in the local category. Practices are an integral part of the sport and are as valued as the matches. Therefore the presence at the practices is required. The coaches could make the decision to play a player based on participation in the practices and they will have the support of the Club in these circumstances.
