U4 DIVISION

ALEX SAUNDERS

Assistant Director of Coaching

Welcome to the 4U Boys & Girls Division Page

In the U4 division we will work on ball handling and introduce a few rules; like no hands & out of bounds through fun play. The 4U season meets 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 Alex Saunders ADOC, Administrator Leah Kinworthy, or your teams head coach.  After registration has closed, all players will receive an email that will include login info for the TEAM SNAP app to receive team emails, schedules, rain-out notifications, and other club wide information.  If you do not receive this email for a Team Snap login, please contact Leah Kinworthy at administrator@benningtonsoccer.org
