All recreational programs will follow the calendar year. This means your child will move to the next age group on/after January 1st.
Club Soccer is offered to all recreational players, 07U through 12U regardless of their playing experience. The program is designed to further develop the basic skills of the game through age appropriate activities and exercises that are used to keep the learning process both challenging and fun.
Each session will begin with training instructed by an adult Licensed Coach, the remaining time of the session will consist of a 5v5 soccer game for the 7U through 10U which will consist of four field players and a goalkeeper, and to better prepare the 11U through 12U player for InterTown Summer Soccer and Travel Soccer, they will play 7v7, which will consist of 6 field players and a goalkeeper.
The Fall and Spring six week program will be structured as follows:
Weeks 1 is Skill Level Evaluation Week, allowing an opportunity to assess player’s skills and identify volunteer parent coaches to help during the Game Weeks. The third week players are assigned to teams, depending on the skill level there may be one or two divisions allowing players to play against players of similar level and experience.
Weeks 2,3,4,5 - Game Weeks with each session starting with pregame training activates lead by a qualified adult coaching staff member followed by a game.
Week 6 – Tournament Week - A guaranteed minimum three game Round Robin Tournament with awards being presented to all participants after the final game.
The Winter Program is set up similarly, but is an 8 week session.
The program is offered outdoors in the fall and spring and indoor at the Lakefront Soccer Complex facility during the winter session.
The pre-game instruction portion of the sessions are led by adult Licensed Coaching Staff Members, however parents are needed to help assist as well as serving as coaches during the games. We strongly encourage participation of all parents to volunteer and assist. No experience required to volunteer, just a desire to help the kids learn !!
Shin guards are required. Turf shoes or sneakers are required for the Winter indoor program. Outdoor Cleats are NOT ALLOWED on the indoor turf! Please bring a water bottle and size 4 soccer ball! Team T-shirts will be distributed the second week of the program.
(Dates, times, and locations are subject to change.)
All volunteers/coaches will be submitted to NYSWYSA for a Risk Management background check.
