The Recreation Program offers an opportunity for youth players (ages 3U to 19U) to play soccer at a less challenging and competitive level, while still placing an emphasis on learning and having fun. Rec Soccer is entirely coached by parent and community volunteers and supported by our staff coaches. We rely on our 150+ volunteer coaches and +15 staff coaches to help keep our team sizes manageable and to maximize each child's time touching the ball and playing this beautiful game.
