U6 and U7 Microsoccer Program
Mercer Island FC Microsoccer is designed for our youngest soccer players. This is a perfect opportunity to come out and start building on the basics of soccer while playing with friends and having fun!
Microsoccer is run by our MIFC Trainers & Coaches. Fall microsoccer consisted of Wednesday drop in session and Saturday sessions have a segment of training and skill learning followed by scrimmages. Scrimmages are coached by volunteer parents.
Spring micro is a drop-in training on Sunday afternoons.

Microsoccer is for our youngest players. This program is available for kids born in 2017 (U7) & 2018 (U6). These kids typically fall into Pre-K through first grade and are grouped by birth year.
Fall Microsoccer starts on early September and goes through end October.
All sessions will be held at Homestead Fields. The schedule will be released in August.
Spring Microsoccer starts in late April and goes through mid-June.
MIFC worked with an A licensed soccer coach (the highest national coaching rating) to design the Microsoccer program. Constant motion and individual player ball time is important. We teach age appropriate skills and activities. The approach we will be taking each week is to focus on coordination during warm ups and then progressing week to week through skill development including dribbling, ball control, individual/small group understanding, passing, turning and finally shooting.
As part of their registration, Microsoccer players receive a jersey.
Parents are responsible for ensuring their players wear/bring the following to every session:
- Size #3 soccer ball with their name on it
- Water bottle
- Shoes - cleats are not required, but are recommended as the sessions are on grass. Cleats will give better traction, especially on wet grass. Tennis or athletic shoes are acceptable
