CLINIC & INTRAMURAL PROGRAMS INFO
CLINIC (Birth Years 2017-2019)
The Clinic program at V.O.B. Soccer is for young players who are interested in trying soccer. The program is designed to introduce young children from the ages of 3 to 6 to the game. The children are not expected to have any skills in soccer, only a desire to have fun playing the game. They play on a small team against other V.O.B. teams at the same age level (coed). The teams meet on Sunday afternoons (some Saturday exceptions) for a half hour practice, which is followed by a half hour game. The size of field and goals varies which each age group. The focus of the program is to have all of the children have as many “touches” with a soccer ball as possible, getting them comfortable playing the game. No scores are kept and all of the children are given equal time to play in the game. At the end of the season all of the children are rewarded with a trophy for their efforts.
Unless otherwise stated all clinic sessions run Sundays from 12:00 -1:00 pm and/or 12:30- 1:30 pm at the Patrick Kinane Memorial Soccer Fields (behind St. Patrick' RC Church/School).
INTRAMURAL (U7 & U8)
The VOB soccer club offers a competitive, in-house Intramural program designed to help young soccer players continue their development and make the transition from our clinic program.

Games are held at the Patrick Kinane Memorial Soccer Fields (behind St. Patrick' RC Church/School) and game times are on Sundays at either 2:00pm or 3:15pm (unless otherwise stated).
