Our U6 program is designed specifically for the Pre-K and Kindergarten ages. It is a co-ed Foothills program which is not run through PYSA. In the Fall the program includes one practice and one game per week after school on weekdays. The Spring program is generally held on Sunday mornings at Wilson high school. It combines drills taught by a professional coach with scrimmages run by volunteer coaches. The goal is a positive soccer experience that builds confidence and skill in a fun and relaxed setting.
