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 a rewarding way to satisfy your volunteer bond requirement. In past years, I have had many sign up for Assistant Coaches, but few sign up for Head Coach (Coach); please consider the Head Coach (Coach) position as it makes creating teams and the start season much easier.
