- If the YMCA has to cancel any programming due to government mandate in the State of South Carolina or if the YMCA chooses to cancel due to rising cases or exposure within the program, then we would offer participants the option to have an online credit placed on their account or for a full refund back to their original payment method.
- If the parent or player cannot participate because they have been asked to quarantine or are sick, then a refund would not be given.

What to Expect for this age group:

- Development of Positions
- Introduction to One-on-One Defense
- Ball Control & Dribbling
The U8 program encourages movement through soccer-related children’s games. A young player’s soccer experience should be a positive and fun one. Competitive pressures should be discouraged and players should be focused on the “everyone wins” theory. U8 players will be expected to be able to dribble with both feet, develop a soft first touch, and be comfortable shooting and passing. More importantly, they will have fun and develop a love for the game.
