2022 Summer Outdoor Mini Soccer Season

Registration is now closed.

The season is scheduled to start the first week in May (weather permitting) and coincides with the school calendar, ending the last week of June. We do not reschedule for rainy days.

Parent involvement is encouraged. Dropping kids off and leaving is not permitted. Kids consider fun in a number of ways: playing with friends, trying new ideas, gaining more confidence/skill, and enjoying a positive experience. Many children learn best through games and repetition.

Coaches

Better coaching equates to more fun!  That’s what the game of Mini Soccer is all about … FUN and snacks of course!  Following the guidelines from the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA) Dakota Mini Soccer implements the stage perspective to ensure our players have a great time. 

If you are interested in becoming a coach and attending a clinic please visit, Manitoba Soccer | Coaching  Note: You will be reimbursed for the clinic by Dakota Community Centre, please save your receipts and submit to the front office.

In addition to the above, Sport Manitoba offers Respect in Sport which can be completed online for coaches, assistants and managers.

Group Levels

STAGE 1: ACTIVE START (Ages 4 & 5)
At this stage coaches and parents focus on more games versus scrimmage to allow the player more repetition and time with the ball.  The format encourages basic fundamental movement skills such as running, jumping, landing, kicking, catching, and throwing in a fun setting built around informal play and positive reinforcement.

STAGE 2: FUNDAMENTALS (Ages 6-8)
Allows children to develop their movement ABC's, agility, balance, coordination, and speed while learning the basics of the game. Emphasis remains on fun, cooperation, and maximum time on the ball. Coaches and parents together create a stimulating learning environment where the atmosphere is “Freedom and Fun.” Technical instruction is introduced through movement exercises and games that promote a feel for the ball.

Team Uniform and Equipment

Players are required to have the following equipment: Shin Guards, Shorts, Runners or Cleats (optional)

NO caps or jewelry are permitted on the field re: safety concerns.
