JUNIORS PROGRAM BACKGROUND
Micro Soccer Program Professionally Run For 3—7 year olds.
"The Albion SC program has taken over the development of the 3-7 year old player in the organization to have a closer part in developing this age player. We have put in place a professional structure and our goal with this program is to start progressing the youngest soccer player, we have no desire to turn a 3-7 year old into a competitive player at that age or push them any harder, only to provide the best instruction and environment to foster the love of the game." - Noah Gins, Albion SC, Technical Director
What to look for in a Micro Junior Soccer Program
When searching for a developmental program for your player, one of the most critical components is finding an organization with a sound philosophy for developing technical and tactical skills that are age appropriate. It is also important to find a coaching staff that has the knowledge and expertise to work with the younger player. An appropriate training program that places your player in a training environment that ensures fun and proper fundamental development is also very important. Albion Juniors is under the guidance of USSF Nationally licensed Director, Dan Raeihle. He has been a player, coach and trainer for 20 years and distinguished himself as an enthusiastic and leading youth soccer coach!
Our Youth Program
The ALBION JUNIORS—Development Program for the Junior Player is designed to give your child the opportunity to build a solid foundation in technical development in the very early years of playing and enjoying the game of soccer. ALBION JUNIORS program serves as an introductory and advanced path for 3—7 aged soccer players.

ALBION JUNIORS U4, U5, U6, U7 PROGRAM
The vision for the Albion Juniors program will be to have the following age groups where they would be gender specific (except in the U4 age group), have separate training sessions and matches alike:
· U4 (Coed)
· U5 (Girl Bracket and Boy Bracket*)
· U6 (Girl Bracket and Boy Bracket*)
· U7 (Girl Bracket and Boy Bracket*)
*If number of Registration allows
Overall, all players will be under the guidance and development of the Albion Juniors’ Director. He will educate, mentor, and guide the volunteer Juniors coaches who take on an Albion Juniors Team for the season. Teams can be created with a mix of genders upon request, but the vision of the Juniors program is to have the separation. If there is a mixed team then that team would be placed in the Boy bracket of that age group. During the Fall season, respective Juniors’ Team coaches will have two training sessions per week and in the Spring there will be one session per week. In addition to the Team Training Sessions, there will be Juniors Director led Training Session, Specialty Camps, and Friday Clinics offered.
