U7 and U8 Rec

The focus of the program will be on the development of each players’ individual ball skills. Through training we will encourage players to become more assertive on the ball, improving their ability to dribble and overall decision making.  And most importantly of all, we want to make sure that those who do participate are given the opportunity to enjoy the game of soccer!

U9 Rec

The purpose of the U9 program is to develop basic skills and to teach the fundamentals of the game in an environment that is conducive to learning. Children are placed into teams by gender and age. Teams will train on Saturdays for about 75 minutes and will play games on Sundays. This provides an opportunity for players to get used to games with throw ins, corner kicks, referees, etc. in advance of programs such as Intercounty.
