Real Colorado’s Cubbie Program
Cubbie Fall and Spring Programs
The CUBBIES program is offered to boys and girls with a birth year of 2018 for the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 seasons. This fun and energetic program is designed to introduce our youngest players and their parents to the exciting game of soccer and the rewards of being part of a team. Every session is filled with age appropriate soccer activities and games that provide these young players with the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of soccer and have fun in their first soccer experience.
CUBBIES PROGRAM OVERVIEW:
Cubbies is a SIX-week program offered during the Fall and Spring recreational seasons. Cubbies sessions are held on SATURDAYS.
- Session Times:
- Boys – 9:30 am
- Girls – 10:30 am
- Season Dates: September 18 – October 16
- Location: Redstone Elementary
There are no practices during the week.
FALL FORMAT: Players will be placed in groups with one or two parent volunteers and will be assisted by Real Colorado Coaching staff. Each week groups will participate in fun soccer activities such as “Mr Fox” “Hungry Hippos” and “Let’s Go to the Zoo”. Although for most sessions, players will be engaged in one ball per player activities, during the last 2 sessions, groups will participate in 1 vs 1 and 2 vs 2 games.
SPRING FORMAT: Players will be divided into teams of 5-6 players. Players are generally placed on teams by their neighborhood school location, as listed on their registration form. Special requests will be considered. Each team will have a volunteer parent coach, who will lead the activities and facilitate the games. Staff coaches will provide a FUN and basic coaching packet to the coach and will be on-site for support and assistance. There are no co-ed teams. First 4 weeks: “Practice Phase”. Players will continue with fun activities as well as being introduced to cooperative play and being part of a team. They will continue to learn basic soccer skills in a fun and challenging environment. Last 2 weeks of spring: “Game Phase”. Games are played in a 1 vs 1 or 2 vs 2 format with a maximum of 1 to 2 players from each team on the field at a time. Prior to each game Cubbies will warm up playing one or two of their favorite Cubbies activities that they learned during the “Practice Phase” sessions. Following the fun ‘warm up’ stage, each team will play a game against another Cubbies team. Games will run approximately 20-25 minutes in duration.
COST: $85 PER season. You must register for the Fall and Spring season separately.
Each Cubbie will need to bring to every session:
- Size three soccer ball (will be used until age 8)
- Shinguards with socks pulled up over the top! No shinguards= No play
- Water bottle
- Spring season ONLY players will need a Uniform: Real Colorado red and white jerseys MUST be purchased through Soccer.com. The discounted price is reflected on the soccer.com site. The jerseys are offered alone or as part of a package.
- Please see our Uniform Page for information on how to order your Cubbies uniform.
- Each child will also need shorts and socks but these may be generic.
- Players can wear tennis shoes or cleats.
Nothing brings a bigger smile to a child’s face than to have their Mom or Dad share their soccer experiences with them!
Each team will need parent volunteers to serve as head coach, assistant coach and team parent. If you do sign up to be a coach, please remember that Real Colorado is committed to providing support on and off the pitch for all of our volunteer coaches. We would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to step into a volunteer role for our Cubbies Program. You will have the opportunity to choose a volunteer role during your registration process.
Welcome from all of us at Real Colorado!
Cubbies is a great way to introduce players to the game of soccer. Focus is on fun, creativity and age appropriate activities with and without a soccer ball. Some of our Cubbies favorite games include: Pick up the Laundry, A Day at the Zoo, Port and Starboard and “Mr. Fox, Mr. Fox What Time Is It?”
All Cubbies Campers will receive a Cubbies tee shirt.
