What is the Northwest United FC Micro Program?

The Northwest United FC Micro Program is targeted for children who are Pre-Kindergarten (U5), Kindergarten (U6), and 1st-3rd grade (U7-U9) who are not already involved in Northwest United select teams. This is an introductory soccer program that promotes physical activity through the FUNdamentals of the game of soccer. Northwest United FC firmly believes in developing a solid foundation for young players to be the best they can be. The program is one of the building blocks for future participation in the Northwest United FC’s select and premier teams.

This Micro Program promotes physical activity through the game of soccer. It introduces and reinforces the FUNdamental skills of the game, as well as age-appropriate locomotor movements (running, jumping, skipping, etc..) and non locomotor movements (balancing, bending, extending, swaying, twisting, etc..).

The Micro Program’s professional coaches provide age appropriate activities based off of a curriculum that uses small sided games to develop the player’s enjoyment and love for the game and physical activity.
