Recreation Soccer Philosophy
The aim of the rec soccer program is to provide an opportunity for kids to learn soccer skills, have fun, enjoy friendships, get some exercise, and instill a passion for the game of soccer. It is all about helping kids stay healthy and active.
Recreation soccer is not competitive soccer. It is not about winning games, but simply the joy of playing them. There is no official score keeping, league standings, or playoffs. Instead, there are 650 kids enjoying a game, learning new skills, and making friends during the beautiful summer evenings of July and August.
