The recreational league is awesome for youth players (age 4 to 18) who want to play soccer and have fun. Teams practice, play games, learn, and have lots of fun together. All recreational soccer programs rely on volunteer/parent coaches for training and games.
The program also provides an introduction to soccer for younger kids, gradually teaching fundamental soccer skills and principles to the players, in preparation for a fun-filled lifetime of soccer excitement.
The level of play and competition is what differentiates recreational from competitive (classic) and Academy soccer. In the recreational soccer programs, teams are chosen by random player assignment, and the recreational league coaches are expected to play all players at least 50% of the game, regardless of each player’s aptitude.
