The Under 5 Timbits Program is sponsored by the local Tim Horton's.
Sessions are 45 minutes long and are ONLY once a week. In the past we had so many players that we offered 4 days for the parents to pick from. We will send an email out to the parents in Mid-April and ask them to give us 2 days and 2 start times to choose from. Once we have everyones information we will try to accommodate those dates and times. For example, if we had the same number if kids as 2019 Outdoor we could offer 4 days to pick from. Parents would email me 'Tuesday or Thursday' and a '5:45pm start time or a 6:15pm start time'. Then I would do my best to put your child in one of the days and one of those start times.
The Under 5 program focuses on Physical Literacy. Jumping, throwing, kicking, running and most of the activities have a ball. It is where we want to introduce the ball to the child. Parents are expected to PARTICIPATE in the activities until the child feels comfortable, then parents can step back. We want the kids to feel safe and comfortable which is why we involve the parents, especially at the start of the session. Some activities will involve the parent and others not.
At the start of the season the Kids will receive a bag and waterbottle from BYSI and a timbits jersey from Tim Hortons. At the end of the season Tim Hortons gives the kids a ball and a medal. We are getting updated info from Tim Hortons to see if they get to keep the jerseys this year or not as this may change.
We do ask that all players wear shin guards. These can be purchased at any number of local stores (Canadian Tire, Dollarama, Walmart, Sport-Chek, Co-Op Leisure Time, Dollar Store). Children this age can wear normal running shoes and do not need soccer cleats unless you want your child to wear them. Shorts or sweat pants are fine. Bring a hat for sunny and hot days. Always bring their waterbottle full as we have many water breaks.
If your child has a friend or relative, or need to be paired with someone due to transportation, please email me at email@example.com with their names and age group. I will do my best to place them in the same group.
Parents will be expected the wear a mask unless we get direction from Sask Soccer otherwise.
