General Information

This is a developmental league that focuses on footwork and basic soccer skills for the beginner aged 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. Games, which will start Week 4, will involve a  4v4 format with no goalie. 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. Registrations are available at least a month prior. Size 3 soccer ball recommended. 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.
