General Information

The FFC Co-Ed U7 Soccer Clinic is a developmental league that focuses on footwork and basic soccer skills for the beginner age 4-6. For the first three weeks of the season, players will run through a clinic-style practice facilitated by coaches and led by our league director. Beginning week 4 – 3v3 games will be played. 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.’   Size 3 soccer ball recommended. Game format 4 v 4

Our Fall League begins in August and the Spring League begins in April. Registrations are available one month prior. 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. 

League Dates:  Sept. 4 – October 29, 2021

Fee:  $40 per child includes team jersey
Refund Policy:  $5.00 fee retained if refund requested. No refund will be given to any player who withdraws after the second week of practice. An exception may be granted at the discretion of the staff due to medical reasons only. Further, no refund will be given to any player removed from the league during the course of the season for disciplinary reasons.
