Program Objectives: A recreation program designed to provide an environment for players 5-9 years old (born between 1/1/2010 - 12/31/2014) that have demonstrated the ability and desire to develop at a higher rate than a recreational player. This program is a great stepping stone for players coming from playing recreation soccer and want to improve their skills and eventually move on to play in our competitive Challenge or Classic leagues. The atmosphere that is created will also foster player growth in areas of balance, coordination, teamwork and sportsmanship.
