    Dinomites Program

    VSC Dino and Dinomite Soccer is the foundation of our program. Every weekend our 2 and 3 year old boys and girls come out to have a great time! Remember when you were 2 or 3? We can't, but we are sure life was about play, fun and making friends. The Dinomites program brings that same spirit of fun and adventure to the entire family and establishes a soccer experience that lasts a lifetime. This program is the first in our progressional series of soccer programs that support the growth and development of players at the youngest age levels. This multi week, age specific program, has a step by step interactive development guide that our coaches will deliver to the players.The curriculum is often based around the adventures of Dino and his sister Deana and there are three principles that act as its foundation;

    • Story Telling
    • Imagination
    • Play
    We also use additonal curriculum and adventures with learning points that are integrated into the games, stories and play; this allows the children to learn in their natural environment while having fun. The players will learn to move their bodies around a soccer field and balance while manipulating a ball. Our focus will be on fun movement games to strengthen gross motor skills and introducing the concept of teamwork.The role of the coach is one of story teller, with the coaching points integrated into the stories. Learning to play with the ball is all part of the stories and the fun.

    Parent participation is encouraged to make young children comfortable with this soccer experience.

    The parents will be involved through the use of our easy to follow Activity Booklet that is based upon creative adventures and fun games. The program is fun for player's coaches and parents alike, it will create a memorable soccer experience for everyone involved and it will leave everyone looking forward to their next soccer season.
    Please review the registration platform for seasonal dates and times.

    Additional Dinomites Parent Information

    For many families this may be their first experience with soccer. Many hands make light work if the philosophy here. We will have a coaching leader and often many high school players to help reduce the coach to player ratio. Having multiple parents / guardians assist the coaches is helpful as well. Please be sure that your child has on comfortable athletic shoes or preferably cleats (double knotted) and shin guards (worn under socks at all times). Please bring the correct size 3 soccer ball and a full water bottle. All items should be labeled with your child's name and/or phone number. Long hair should be tied back and no jewelry (including necklaces, earrings, watches or hair clips) should be worn. Please have your child visit the restroom before practice

    Please drive SLOWLY around the fields!!!!

    Parents can, and should subscribe to the notices from the www.vernonsoccerclub.org website and activate their Team Connect App. All cancellation notices posted to the website will go directly to your home and/or work e-mail immediately upon posting.
    If you provide your cell number you will also receive a text message alert for last minute changes. This can be particularly helpful if you do not regularly check email.

    Safety
    If your child has any allergies (especially to bee stings), asthma, or any other serious health issue be sure to discuss this with your coach. We do not provide coaches with an extensive first aid kit. If your child may need more than a band-aid or ice pack, be sure that your child's coach has it and knows how to use it.

    Conduct
    Youth sports is the time to model correct and appropriate behavior for our children. Always keep in mind that this is a GAME and that these are CHILDREN playing. There will be mistakes made by players, coaches and referees alike. Cheer your child on, but step back from the sideline and please let your coach do the coaching. While most coaches welcome any comments from the parents about how to make the season more productive and fun, please remember that the coaches are all parent volunteers who are working hard to spend time teaching your child. If you should have any concerns about your child's coach, please contact your Division Director.

    Above all, please remember that the Intramural Soccer Program is first and foremost about our children having FUN. The goal is for our youth to learn to play soccer, get along with and play as a team, and be competitive and show good sportsmanship while having FUN. We look forward to another great season!
