Info about Perth United Soccer Club’s House League

At the House League level, we continue our focus on individual skill development but we start to build on team play and tactics.  As our players physically and mentally develop, we continue to push them to improve their skills and understanding of the game.

Our House League program follows the Ontario Soccer Association Pyramid of Play, and Soccer Canada’s Learning Pathway, which emphasizes individual player development and growth. House League is complemented by the club’s youth recreational and competitive programs, which gives players an opportunity to further develop their skills once they reach the ages of 9 and 10.

Players are assigned to the appropriate age group for their year of birth.  Any request to play up or down in a different age category will be evaluated after the season has started and the player’s ability has been assessed by the club head coach.

U5 House League (2012 and 2013 /Fees : $90)

The Under 5 age group is made up of boys and girls who turn 4 or 5 years during this calendar year.

Teams will be mixed with boys and girls on each team.

U5 players play ONE night per week — either Tuesday OR Thursday — from 6-7pm at Conlon Farm. Each U5 player will be assigned to play on Tuesday OR Thursday. If there is a certain night you need to have your U5 player play, then please indicate either “Tuesday” or “Thursday” when filling out your child’s PUSC registration form.  PUSC volunteers will try our best to assign your child to the night that fits with your family’s schedule.

The emphasis for U5 is on introducing basic skills like ball control and passing.  Skills are taught using fun activities that balance soccer skills and social development.

There are NO scrimmages at this level.  Sessions work on individual skill development and building social skills through games and light drills.

U7 House League (2011 and 2010 /Fees : $140)

The Under 7 age teams are divided into boys teams and girls teams. Players who turn 6 or 7 during this calendar year play at the U7 level.

U7 players play two nights per week — on Tuesdays AND Thursdays — from 6-7pm at Conlon Farm.

The focus at the U7 level is on building basic soccer skills and developing an appreciation for the game.  Game play is introduced with the addition of nets in the U7 group but we do not keep score or maintain team standings so that the focus remains on skill development.   Games are played without goalies to encourage player development.  We aim to maintain a high leader-to-player ratio, to ensure that every player is receiving the attention they need.

Game Play Rules
Time: Two 15 halves.  Games are preceded by a 30 minute practice session.
Team Size: MAX 4-6 players on field
Referees: No.  Games are refereed by coaches
Substitution:  On any stoppage of play

U10 House League (2007/2008/2009 /Fees : $140)

**Please note**
The U10 House League Participants will be part of a JERSEY pilot program in 2017. This is a program to determine if returnable jerseys are more efficient and economical for the club and it’s members. Each U10 Participant will be required to provide a deposit cheque (amount $50), made out to PUSC, before they receive their club jersey. At the end of the season, you may exchange the club jersey for your refund. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact our Uniform Director and Vice President, Tanya Peden

The Under 10 age teams are divided into boys teams and girls teams. Players who turn 8, 9 or 10 during this calendar year play at the U10 level.

U10 players play two nights per week — on Tuesdays AND Thursdays — from 6-7pm at Conlon Farm.

The focus at the U10 level is on furthering soccer skills and developing an appreciation for the game.  Game play is held at the U10 level. The score is not kept and team standings are not maintained, so that the focus remains on skill development.   Games are played with goalies and are refereed by “learning” referees from our youth recreational and youth teams.  We aim to maintain a high leader-to-player ratio, to ensure that every player is receiving the attention they need.

Game Play Rules
Time: Two 15 halves.  Games are preceded by a 30 minute practice session.

House League Coaches and Volunteers are ALWAYS Needed!

Our coaches are an integral component in our development program and the Perth United Soccer Club is committed to an Activity Leader development program.  The soccer club runs free coaching clinics every spring with the goal of providing better instruction to our players, and if a parent wants to further their coaching skills, we will re-imburse for coaching courses run by OSA/EODSA and Soccer Canada. See our Activity Leaders page for more information.

All PUSC Activity Leaders and Field Helpers are volunteers.  We always have a need for them each season, and we would love for you to join us! NO experience necessary!

Our current Activity Leaders are simply parents of kids on the team that join the players on the field, rather than watching from the sidelines. Everyone is being introduced to soccer at the same time, and it is a great learning opportunity for both players and parents. We will provide volunteers with handouts and examples of drills to use.

If you’re interested in helping out a House League team, please email clubgm@pusc.ca, or you can also offer to volunteer on your child’s registration form.

Also, you may know a high school, college or university student who may be interested in coaching.  If you know anyone, please pass on their details.

We thank you, and so do the kids!
