U4 DIVISION

BERNICE BEAM

In-House Team Administrator Manager

ALEX MATHERS

Technical Director

Welcome to the U4 division.  In the U4 division we will work on ball handling and introduce a few rules; no hands & out of bounds through fun play. The U4 season Wednesday nights from 6-7pm at the Bennington Soccer Complex.

If this is your first season in team sports your child maybe hesitant during the first couple practices. This is all new and can be over whelming for some children. They are with many kids they do not know and surrounded by numerous parents and grandparents. Much the same feeling of being on stage. During the fall season sessions will be instructed with one player & parent; much like a mommy/daddy and me class. This helps ease any anxiety and gives you ideas for games you and your child can play at home to continue working on the skills learned.  During the Spring season players will be divided into groups with coaches.  

Communication: All communication for this division will be sent by our In-House Coordinator Bernice Beam, our Communications Director Erin Kloke or your teams head coach.  All players should have a TEAM SNAP login to receive team emails, schedules, rain-out notifications, and other club wide information.  If you do not have a Team Snap login, please contact Erin Kloke at communicationsdir@benningtonsoccer.org ASAP!

Equipment:

  • Shin Guards
  • Tennis Shoes or Cleats; no baseball cleats allowed due to the cleat in the toe
  • Size 3 Soccer Ball
  • No jewelry; ie earrings or necklaces

Your child may need a snack between the practice and game portion. Great snacks for refueling; oranges, grapes, apples or bananas.
