The CASL Recreation Soccer Program serves children in grades UPK-6th grade. Emphasis is on learning basic soccer skills and having fun. As this is a recreational soccer program, it is understood that players cannot make every practice session or game due to school, vacations, etc. Placement level is based on the child’s grade for this coming September:
PreK-K: This program is designed as an introduction to soccer. Each week coaches are given a set of fun, basic skills and drills to run through with the players for 15-20 minutes before each game. Child must be 4 years of age by May 1st of this year to participate. Games are played on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
1st-2nd Grade: Emphasis is on learning the game by continuing to build basic skills. Coaches are provided weekly skills and drills to work on during practice sessions. Referees make calls while providing instruction and guidance to the players. Games are played on Monday and Wednesday evenings.
3rd-4th Grade: This program continues to build on the principles of the game with skills suited for this age level. The field of play is larger and the length of the game is increased. We continue to stress the importance of learning the game with Referees providing instruction as calls are made. Games are played on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
5th-6th Grade: At this level, the field of play is again increased and Referees continue to provide instruction with calls, however not as frequently as the players have increased knowledge of the game. Games are played on Monday and Wednesday evenings.
Our season will begin with our annual Kick-Off Event held in May (more information to follow in Rec League News). During this time, you and your child will have the opportunity to meet your coaches and receive your child’s uniform. Games typically begin in mid-June and run through the end of July (weather dependent).
All of our coaches are parent volunteers and we would love to have you join us. If you are interested in coaching or helping out on the sidelines, please let us know. You do not need to have years of soccer experience to help out. We provide training, guidance and assistance so that all teams and players are learning the same skills and knowledge of the game. With over 45 Rec Teams, we are always in need of coaches – please consider helping out.
