U8 Skills Centre Program Information (Born 2014)


Our U8 program follows the Soccer Canada Skills Centre Model. The Skills Centre Model aims to provide access for all players to a high-quality program where they can have fun with their friends, learn new skills, and play in an appropriate format. Coaches will split players into small groups and each group will rotate through stations participating in fun games and activities.

U8 players also have the option of participating in Skills Centre Festivals on Saturdays where teams get to play games against other Clubs. Festivals typically include 2 games.


Practice Schedule:

U8 players practice twice a week. During preseason in May practices will be one evening during the week, and on Saturday mornings. Practices in June, July and August will on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6pm.

Practices start the second week of May and run until the end of the fourth week of August.


Practice Location:

May practice locations are to be confirmed but will be held locally in Dartmouth.

Starting the first week of June, practices will be held at our home field at Eric Graves Junior High School.



Skill Centre Festivals will be held every second Saturday and are expected to start the end of May and run through into mid August.

U8 Skills Centre Festivals play 5v5.

The exact schedule will be determined by the League once the number of teams has been established.
