Skill Centre Program (U8-U11)

Halifax Dunbrack Soccer Club's Skill Centre Program aligns with Canada Soccer’s best practices for youth development. The curriculum for this program focuses on the player’s continued love for the ball and progresses into 1v1, 2v2 and small sided games. In our Skill Centre Program our players train twice per week with match play occurring on weekends. 

The overarching purpose of the Canada Soccer Skill Centre model is to provide players “access to high-quality programs where they can have fun with their friends, learn new skills and play the game in an appropriate format” (Canada Soccer Skill Centre Manual).

  • The Joma training kit bundle package will be available for purchase on the RAMP registration platform at a cost of $50, and is available for pickup at our club office.

  • You will be able to select your Joma training kit size when you register.
