Jr. Cutter Call Outs will take place on Tuesday, June 4th
The coaches will run a practice while the Director of Coaching, Tom Berry, hosts a parent meeting and answers all your questions.
Jr. Cutters (9U-10U Girls & Boys): Jr. Cutters is intended to transition the club’s youngest players from recreational to the more competitive travel program. Jr Cutters is a 2-year program and all players interested are accepted as space allows and is intended to be an inclusive program. One of the goals of the Jr. Cutters is to bring similarly interested players together to receive age appropriate training and development overseen by the club’s travel coaching staff. The program is intended to be FUN and build a passion for the sport of soccer. Skill-building and ball control will be a high priority and each player will be encouraged to take risks, solve problems and given the freedom to be creative on the soccer field.
Practice will occur 2 times per week from August-October in the fall. Spring practice will begin in March after spring break and will conclude in late May. Optional winter training (Nov-March) at Bloomington United Gymnastics & Soccer (BUGS) with Cutters’ Director of Coaching is strongly encouraged, but not mandatory. Winter training registration can be completed in June during season registration (best value) or can be added later in the year.
The Jr. Cutters will participate in the ISL Academy League. League results are not recorded and are not the objective of the program. Games are typically played on Saturdays at Karst Farm Park, or at another club within an approximately 70 mile radius of Bloomington. The league is formatted to play double headers on each game weekend to minimize travel at this age. Families should anticipate 4-5 Saturdays of participation throughout each season.
