MINI SOCCER

 

At GCCC we believe that all children have the right to play and learn sports in a safe and inviting atmosphere.  We feel that our highly motivated team of volunteer coaches will make your child's sporting experience one they will cherish.

The Garden City C.C. Soccer Program was started 40 years ago, and a member of the original Winnipeg Minor Soccer Association. The intent of providing a viable, supportive and safe experience has never changed.

** All registrations must be completed online. New and existing GCCC customers will need to create a household account for our new online booking system, Finnly Connect. Please view instrctions on how to create your Finnly Connect account HERE**

 

WE NEED COACHES

Each team is dependent on volunteer coaches. This can be shared between multiple parents per team. Garden City Community Centre will gladly reimburse volunteers for coaching clinics and criminal record check expenses. If you’re interested in coaching, please email info@gardencitycc.com
 

OUTDOOR MINI SOCCER PROGRAM

Our outdoor mini soccer is an MSA sanctioned program and is open to all residents of Winnipeg and surrounding areas, where a non-MSA sanctioned program is being exercised.

The outdoor mini soccer program plays its games from May until June. Games are played on either Monday’s and Wednesday’s, or Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. It’s a fun-filled season where the primary objective is to create a safe and enjoyable environment where your child can build their self-esteem while learning the basics of soccer. The fair play rule is always followed, creating equal opportunity for all players.

As a note, our objective is to have an in-house league with no travel for all age groups. This will be dependent on the number of teams we have in the 7 and 8 age categories.

The outdoor mini soccer season starts in May and runs for 8 weeks. The 4/5 year olds play on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s at 6pm; the 6 year olds will play on Monday’s and Wednesday’s at 6pm; the 7 year olds will play on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s at 7:15pm; and the 8 year olds will play on Monday’s and Wednesday’s at 7:15pm. When possible, GCCC will look to old a year-end mini jamboree to wrap up the season.

INDOOR MINI SOCCER PROGRAM

The Garden City Community Centre indoor mini soccer program (ages 4 to 8) is unique as it allows both players and coaches the opportunity to continue the sport through the winter. Community Centre boundaries do not apply, as this program is open to players all across the city and fills up to capacity quickly.

Mini Academy:

Our mini academy takes place at the beginning of the indoor season, in September. Academy allows players and coaches to learn the basics of soccer. Older players will also benefit from academy, as they will learn additional skills to carry them into the season. These fun filled sessions will allow players to meet their new team mates and get comfortable being on the pitch so that everyone gets the most of their indoor season. All seasons will be led by the knowledgeable coach staff of FC Northwest! Academy is included in the cost of registration.

Indoor Mini Season:

The indoor season will consist of one hour, once a week sessions. Each session will be comprised of approximately 20 minutes of training and 40 minutes of game time.

During the indoor mini soccer season, each participant will receive:
- Seven Oaks Mini Team Jersey
