A RE-IMAGINED RECREATIONAL PROGRAM FOR YOUR CHILD

Our re-imagined fall recreational program will feature 20 outdoor skills sessions with our professional coaching staff (2 per week for U9-U19 age groups).  U5-U8 age groups will enjoy 10 skills sessions (1 per week) with our professional coaching staff.

Our staff will instruct your child with enthusiasm, patience, and kindness, helping them learn new skills and improve existing ones so they can have even more fun playing soccer!

Players are placed into small, stable groups (pods) for health and safety and parents can request a pod of 6-10 friends or teammates you'd like to meet up with each week.

Your Opportunity Includes...


1. PROFESSIONAL COACHING SESSIONS FOR 10 WEEKS

Our 2020 fall recreational skills program will receive instruction from our credentialed, professional coaching staff using a curriculum designed by our Youth Development Director, Dragan Hinic.

Dragan has an amazing passion for teaching youth soccer!

It's a great opportunity for learning from passionate, kind, knowledgeable coaches who have a wealth of soccer experience to share with your child for 20 sessions (10 for the U5-U8 age groups).

*Sessions: 20 Sessions for U9-U19 Age Groups (2x per week)   |  10 Sessions for U5-U8 Age Groups (1x per week)

2. STRICT HEALTH & SAFETY PROCEDURES FOR COVID-19

We don't cut corners, ignore health guidelines, or hesitate to err on the side of caution.  Your child's health is too precious and we do everything we can to make our playing environment safe for players, families, and staff.

See it for yourself! 

Mondays-Thursdays, from 4 pm - 7 pm, go observe our competitive program teams' training at Central Park.

Since July,  these teams have followed the same COVID-19 procedures that our recreational skills sessions will use.

Social Distancing

Temperature Checks

Sanitized Equipment

3. The Benefits Of Play

Kids crave play and now, more than ever, play is really essential for their physical and mental well-being. Our program will provide your child with fun soccer learning, social interaction, and outdoor physical activity.  

Our program will give kids the opportunity for in-person social interaction and a feeling of being connected to a community of peers.

Enrolling in our program will provide your child with the balance to a busy school schedule and also stress relief through play and social interaction.

Your child can boost their skills in a big way during 20 soccer sessions with our credentialed, professional coaching staff (10 sessions for U5-U8 age groups).
