All players MUST use our online form to register. We encourage players to register early as teams can fill quickly.

In person registration night will be on :

Program Description:

U8 players practice once a week on Saturday mornings. Players also have the option of participating in weekend soccer Jamborees at a facility in the HRM on Sundays, where U8 teams get to play games against other Clubs.  Players sign up for the games that they can attend and a team is created for each Jamboree with those players. 

Our U8 program follows Canada Soccer's Long Term Player Development (LTPD). The program allows children to develop their movement ABCs - agility, balance, coordination, and speed - and learn the basics of the game while emphasizing fun, cooperation, and maximum time on the ball.


Program Start / Finish:

Our first week of indoor practices begins the third week of October (Oct 15th, 2019). Winter season ends the week before March break (Sat, March 7th, 2020 inclusive). 


Practice Schedule:

U8 will practice once a week on Saturday mornings, however the practice schedule will not be finalized until a few weeks prior to the start of season. (Oct 15th). The practice schedule will be posted on the Storm website / social media as soon as it's finalized.
