Little Vikings & YDP

SCROLL DOWN FOR THE NEW FALL SCHEDULE!

The Little Vikings classes for kids born 2016 – 2018 is the earliest introduction to organized soccer on the Gjøa Pathway. With each session, our Little Vikings develop a love for the game through fun and engaging activities, while establishing the fundamental skills needed to grow and improve.

Whether on a path to Travel Soccer or refining their game for success in recreational leagues, the Youth Development Program (YDP) offers girls and boys born 2010-2015 professional instruction to improve their soccer skills. Gjøa coaches teach ball mastery and technical skills for the first half of each session, then organize scrimmages in a fun and supportive environment.

Little Vikings/YDP are outdoors in Fall and Spring, and indoors in Winter. See the current season below. These clinics are not open to Gjøa Travel Soccer players. For more info about Travel Soccer click here.

FAQ – OUTDOOR CLINICS

Can we start after the beginning of the season?
Yes, as long as there are still spots in the class. The price prorates automatically after each class, so if there’s space you can register and you’ll be charged the prorated price.

Can we do more than one class a week?
Yes, but we recommend you think carefully about that because our goal is for kids to learn to love soccer, and to avoid burnout. There is no discount on multiple classes, so you can take your time deciding if adding a class is best for your child. We do NOT recommend taking more than two classes per week, however.

Where are the field locations?
Refer to your Welcome email, sent a day or two prior to the start, for exact field locations at the Parade Ground.
The Parade Ground is here.

Can parents watch the clinics?
Yes, but from a distance. Parents that are staying for the clinic must sit or stand in areas designated by the coaching staff. Gjøa has firm rules around parents not coaching from the sidelines. Kids learn best when focused on their coaches and not on their parents. 

What’s the clinic weather and cancellation policy?
In general, we play in the rain, but the presence of lighting means we must cancel the session. If the forecast seems especially risky, we’ll cancel via email by 2pm. If unexpected lightning appears you must be prepared to pick up your child immediately.

We build one possible session cancellation into the pricing of clinics. If two sessions are missed a household credit will be given for one of them.

Do you offer discounts for clinics?

There’s a 10% sibling discount given as a household credit toward any future payment upon request – write to register@gjoa.org. Valid only for registrations made no later than one week into the season.

Do you offer financial aid for clinics?
Yes, we offer a limited number of partial scholarships. For information about financial aid, please email john@gjoa.org.

If you have questions about the program email info@gjoa.org

If you have questions about your registration and/or payment, email register@gjoa.org.
