Spring Soccer

Registration for Concord Soccer Fall 2022 Development Program
Opens July 7


Each fall and spring, Concord Soccer's Soccer Development Program (SDP) provides community-based youth soccer instruction and games.  Our approach fosters character development, sportsmanship, skill acquisition, and fun in a positive, respectful environment.  SDP is focused on player development, and from Kiddie Kicker thru U10 has no standings, won-loss records, championships, or playoffs.

Volunteers are key to SDP:  they process registrations, organize teams, line fields, prepare equipment, serve snacks, and coach teams. Please consider donating your talent, skill, and time to your community.  All coaches of our SDP teams are volunteer parents.  We look for 2 coaches for each team in case 1 coach has a conflict for a session or game.  Concord provides materials and guidance for those interested in coaching. Please register as a volunteer coach during the online registration process.

A player will be assigned to an age group by the registration system based on the year they are born.  All teams will be formed based on birth year and gender.  IMPORTANT:  Please create a user account at before you can register your player.

Soccer shoes, versus sneakers, are optional at the Kiddie Kicker levels.  Soccer shoes are strongly recommended U8 and up.
