The 5U-8U Recreational League provides a fun, safe, and developmentally appropriate soccer environment for 4- to 8-year-olds. The 5U-8U Recreational program is designed to help players continue to grow in the sport of soccer by introducing them to formalized games on Saturdays. Players born in 2014 have the option to play in our 5U-6U Leagues or participate in our Soccer Start program. We STRONGLY recommend players have participated in Soccer Start before joining the league. The specialized curriculum helps players grow in their technical skills and learn the rules of soccer at a developmentally appropriate level for their age. Players will receive a solid foundation of coaching needed to continue into the 9U-10U level and onward.
- Teams play small-sided games (5U/ 6U and 7U Play 3v3 with no goalkeepers; 8U plays 5v5 with a goalkeeper) as we focus on improving each player’s technical ability with the ball.
- Teams are coached by parent volunteer coaches and generally consist of 6-8 players depending on the game format.
- Practice is held once a week for 60 minutes for 5U/6U teams. Practice is held twice a week for 60 minutes for 7U and 8U teams. Games for all age brackets are played at a centralized location on Saturdays.
- Teams play 7-8 games each season
