A fun, all-inclusive exposure to the wonderful game of soccer for boys and girls age 5 through 6th grade. Children must be 5 years old as of April 1, 2014. The youth learn basic skills in a fun and social setting.
The youth are able to demonstrate what they learn by playing a league schedule besides practice sessions.
The youth are divided into four separate boys and girls divisions:
- 5 year olds and kindergarten (mostly Mondays and Saturdays)
- 1st and 2nd grades (mostly Tuesdays and and Saturdays)
- 3rd and 4th grades
- 5th and 6th grades
The youth are coached by volunteer coaches. Practices are held when coaches are able to hold them, with games being held weekday evenings and Saturday mornings. The only equipment required is shin guards, and athletic shoes, which each child must obtain.
Program begins mid-April and goes through early June. All games are held at the Soccer Complex. Check back for specific dates and registration information.
Volunteer coaches needed!
