SUMMER 2022 DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
SATURDAYS IN LAVAL
MAY 28 TO JULY 16 (TWO WEEK HOLIDAY BREAK)
FPF Junior is shifting gears this summer!
Instead of our usual league format, FPF Junior will offer a development program in Summer 2022. Activities will take place on Saturday mornings/afternoons at Parc St-Maxime in Laval. Boys and girls from 7 to 12 years old will be divided into three separate age groups, each with a 90-minute weekly session.
Each training session will begin with a 45-minute skill-development circuit. Players will rotate between several “stations”, featuring a mix of individual and group drills, each focusing on a different aspect of the game. Immediately following the circuit, teams will be made and a 45-minute game will be played. Players will receive reversible jerseys as part of their uniforms, giving us the flexibility to create new, balanced teams each week! The goal of these sessions is to give each player, regardless of their caliber, a chance to get as many quality repetitions as possible, and then be able to apply what they’ve learned in a game setting. Each session will be facilitated and managed by multiple qualified and trained coaches.

No. The program in 2022 will focus more on developing the skills and enjoyment of each player.
In addition to shortened games and tournaments, players will participate in “skill development” sessions which will allow them to develop knowledge of the game and individual skills. A better knowledge of the game and an improvement in their skills will have a direct and positive impact on their introduction to the sport!
Each skills session will be facilitated and managed by our qualified and trained coaches.
Also, in 2022, players registered in the development program will no longer play their matches against the pre-assembled teams.
The weekly session will be 90 minutes long.
During the first 45 minutes, the players will be divided into small groups at separate stations supervised by our coaches. These educators will lead dynamic workshops that will allow players to develop knowledge of the game and individual skills. Each drill has been designed by our team of experienced flag football coaches.
The last 45 minutes of the session will be devoted to games and mini-scrimmages (2v2, 3v3, etc.) in order to allow young people to experience game situations, succeed in predefined games and of course, have fun with their teammates! The games during these sessions will all be overseen by our educators and will not be officiated.
The mini-tournament will take place over two specific Saturdays on the schedule, from morning until mid-afternoon.
The teams for the mini-tournaments will be formed by our coaches. All teams will have the opportunity to play several games during the day, in a fair play atmosphere. One of our qualified referees will be present at each game. Educators will therefore be able to focus on managing their team and on the positive experience of each player!
The teams will be formed by our coaches, one week before the scheduled date of the tournament. The teams will be balanced to allow for balanced and close contests! Teams are formed based on observations made by our educators during “skill development” sessions.
The teams are not fixed and could be changed during the next mini-tournament. There is therefore no selection camp (try-outs) at the start of the season.
First, we appreciate your interest and definitely want to involve everyone who cares about player development.
To become a volunteer coach, no specific experience in flag football is necessary. We take care of your training so that you are equipped and comfortable in your role as a volunteer. Meetings are planned before the start of the activities to explain the objectives of the program, the curriculum of the activities as well as the responsibilities and expectations towards the educators.
Rest assured, at each of the activities, we will also have one of our experienced coaches on hand to answer your questions and assist you in managing your development workshop or the game.
If you would like to get involved in a role other than as coach, we would be happy to count you among our team of volunteers during the mini-tournament days!
We invite you to write to us at the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest in being a coach or volunteer role during the summer 2022 season!
