Our recreational (house league) program is for both beginners and developing players, as well as players who want to enjoy the game of soccer in a no-pressure atmosphere. The program consists of girls and boys teams in the U6 through U18 age brackets (co-ed for 6 and 7 year olds). The house league season is an eight-week schedule running from the start of June to the start of August. The league is non-results oriented up through the U10 level.
The Recreational Program aims to:
· To help players learn the game of soccer along with the technical, tactical, physical, and psychological skills associated with playing it.
· To provide an atmosphere focused on fun and participation that will foster a love of the game of soccer and physical activity.
Can we have our friends all play on the same team?
Teams are formed in a random draw for the purpose of creating a fair/balanced distribution of playing talent among all teams participating
Why don’t we keep league standings?
Recreational soccer is designed to teach players soccer skills, teamwork and sportsmanship. Participation and fun are emphasized, not competition. If your child is interested in a more focused and competitive soccer experience, check out our “Travel” program.
How is the year-end tournament selected?
League playoffs are random draws
Why do the younger kids play small sided games?
Small sided games allow for more touches for each player. This is crucial to the skill development of young players. The decision-making and tactics are also simpler in small sided games, which allow young players to learn the game more effectively. Small sided games are supported by CMYSA, MYSA and the US Soccer Federation.
