This is the first age group that has teams and kids meet once a week for a hour. Each session includes 40 minutes of practice and about 30 minutes of games. Practice focuses on improving individual ball skills. Children need to have a uniform to participate. The program provides an exciting introduction to soccer in a friendly and non-competitive environment. The program creates an enjoyable environment for players to develop their basic soccer skills and understanding of the game. Practice focuses on improving individual ball skills such as dribbling, shooting, and movement education (running, jumping, turning, balancing) are incorporated into age appropriate soccer activities.


Teams are led by a volunteer head coach that conducts practice with support from the Recreational Director.
