This is where motor skills are more refined. Children now have the ability now to think in advance and begin to anticipate where the ball will be, as well as have the ability to stay at tasks longer. Children can identify with a team and begin to make friends. Socialization becomes very important. This is where “traditional” soccer is beginning as we transition to the 8v8 format with the addition of a Goalkeeper. Repetition of skills becomes very important.
