The Recreational Program is for children interested in a less competitive soccer experience. As with all of our programs, the Recreational Program still focuses on skills development and learning the game, but in a less competitive environment than in our Academy and Select programs. The Program is divided into 2 groups by playing age: Micro (U4-U6) and Youth (U7-U14). Our Recreational Program is coached by parent volunteers, who choose when and where they like their teams to practice. While we try to accommodate special requests to practice in certain areas or play with friends, we will occasionally not be able to accommodate requests due to either a coach’s preference or because we are combining players across multiple areas. If you are requesting to play with friends, both friends must make the request and both must be in the same age group. We will endeavor to place everyone who registers on a team. Players will be placed on teams in the order of registration.
