First Start

The Chesapeake United First Start Program is the entry level of soccer that focuses on various aspects of individual player development. The objective of the First Start Program is to provide a basic, introductory environment for players who are just beginning organized sports. The program will concentrate on the social aspects of the game as well as fundamental, elementary soccer-specific topics including dribbling, passing, and shooting. The First Start Program seeks to develop an enjoyment for the game in each player while providing an age appropriate curriculum as a precursor to the Academy Program.

Program Overview

Each season will include the following:

  •  weekly 1-hour training sessions
  •  1 Intra-First Start Program game each Saturday
  •  Volunteer staff for individual teams
  •  Parent meeting preceding the fall and spring seasons
  •  2 training/game shirts
  •  Awards Day at the conclusion of each season
