General Information

The FFC Co-Ed U10 Soccer Spring Clinic is soccer for youth aged 7-9 in the Stark area. U10 Division Games will be played with a 7v7 format with a goalie. We have selected this particular format to maximize learning for our second level of play. In each of our soccer leagues, we seek to teach our players the game of soccer in an age appropriate, healthy and encouraging environment.  We believe that there is such a thing as ‘healthy competition.’  

 

Our Spring League begins in April and goes through Mid June. There will be a short devotional time where we share biblical principles with the players and encourage them to pursue a life with Christ every week. The season will conclude with a league celebration that includes food, fun, participation awards, and league champion awards.
