Team Formation

 
Corte Madera FC forms teams and playing divisions by school grades rather than by age. Friendship requests will be taken into account when forming teams and we will make our best effort to accommodate these requests. Please understand that it is sometimes impossible to accommodate all requests!   

Kindergarten


All practices on either Monday or Wednesday


This season the Kindergarten and 1st Grade team practices will be run by professional trainers.  Sarah Vigil (Coach Sarah of Soccer Kiddos), will be the Head Trainer for the Kindergarten and 1st Grade program.  Her expertise in working with young children, coupled with her knowledge of soccer, makes her the ideal person to head up this training.  Our intent is to give our youngest participants a sold start to the sport of soccer by giving them good basic instruction from the very start.  This will help them to better enjoy soccer, and to have more fun.

Kindergarten and 1st Grade teams will train 1 day a week (Monday-Friday).  Teams will be assigned a training start time between 2:25pm and 4:15pm (potentially 1:45pm on Wednesday).  While professional trainers will be conducting the training, team coaches are encouraged to attend all training sessions.  This will provide continuity from the training ground to game day.




About Coach Sarah:



Sarah Vigil (aka Coach Sarah of SoccerKiddos) is the Owner and Founder of Soccerkiddos.  Soccerkiddos was created based on her 15+ years of working with preschool/Kinder aged children and utilizes age appropriate techniques to teach children soccer while having fun!  

 

Sarah fully utilizes her education, soccer, and coaching experience on the field.  Sarah’s passion for soccer started at an early age where she played on club teams and carried it through to the collegiate level where she played at Cal.  After Cal, she went on to earn her Early Childhood Credential and Masters in Elementary Education, and became the founding teacher of a preschool in San Francisco.  


Coach Sarah holds a National Youth Coaching License as well as F and E/D Licenses.
