Soccer

Dribble, Shoot, Score! Our soccer program offers participants the chance to move and engage with friends while learning new skills and enhancing old ones. This program is a great way to teach fundamentals while developing spatial awareness, agility, and overall athletic skills, as well as emphasizing good sportsmanship.

  • Ages 5-12 years, grades K-6th

REGISTRATION INFORMATION:

  • A late registration fee of $30 will be added to registration fees 5 weeks prior to the start of the program.
  • Requests for coaches and players are not guaranteed after the late registration date. We will do our best to places players with teammates from their school but players will be placed on a team with space nearest to their school.
  • Registration will close at least one week before the first day of the season; registration may close earlier if teams are full.
  • If your desired branch is not available for a certain age group, the teams at that branch are full and are not taking further registrations.
