Recreational Program

U6, U6-U8, U8-U10, U11-U18


Recreational soccer is recommended for new and developing players. These teams emphasize fun and learning. Players are assigned to teams based on their age and every effort is made to place children on teams within their neighborhoods. Once placed on a team, your child will remain on that team for future seasons unless the registration is submitted late, the player has skipped a season, or the family has requested that the child be removed from that team.

  • Five-month season.
  • 10 Games: October - February.
  • Weekly practice dates/times vary according to level and age.
