Mini soccer is open to all children with no previous skills required. Mini-soccer primarily is focused on ensuring players have fun, get the maximum number of touches on the ball and develop good basic soccer skills, athleticism and sportsmanship.

3- 5 Year-Old Program:
These leagues are designed to provide all players with multiple opportunities to touch the ball in a positive environment. They are designed to expose young children to the basics of dribbling, passing and shooting.

6, 7 and 8 Year-Old Program:
Soccer emphasizes skill development, personal growth and fun. Basic soccer techniques are developed as well as introducing team skills. Teams play 5 on 5 on larger, lined fields.

Coaches Needed
Coaching is a great way for you to get involved and be a part of your child’s growth within a sport. Don’t be afraid if you are unfamiliar with soccer, it is about providing positive sporting experiences. Some great resources and materials will be provided to increases your knowledge about soccer. Lastly, it’s an rewarding way to satisfy your volunteer bond requirement.
