General Information

The Co-ed U7 Soccer Clinis is a developmental league that focuses on footwork and basic soccer skills for the beginner aged 4-6.  The clinic is held once a week for 1 hour normally on Saturdays at 11:30am or 12:30pm.  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. 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.

 

 

Equipment Needed:  Soccer Cleats (non-metal), Shin Guards worn under socks are required to wear during season for safety purposes, water bottle with name on it,  Size 3 ball is recommended for practice and will be utilized in games.   Please dress according to the weather.

 

League Dates:  April 16 – June 10, 2022

 

Fee:   $40.00 per child (includes 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.

 

Registration:  Registration for Spring League is available online, paper registrations will be available Nov 24 in the church brochure racks.  Registration will be accepted online with debit/credit card payment or at the church Welcome Desk with check/cash.  Office hours are Mon-Fri 9am -3pm.  Deadline to register is April 8, 2022, or when the league fills up, whichever occurs first.  Church offices will be closed Thanksgiving Day and the day after and Dec 24 – Jan 2.
