MICRO SOCCER (AGE GROUPS U4 & U5)

Micro Soccer provides an introduction to the game of soccer in a positive, engaging, and non-competitive atmosphere.  At this level, our youngest players learn basic soccer skills while developing their gross motor skills and coordination. Players are encouraged to have multiple touches on the ball through fun skill-building games. They are introduced to soccer while making new friends and most of all, having FUN!

Equipment Needed

The registration fee for the micro program covers the cost of a team t-shirt.  The rest of the uniform consists of black shorts and black soccer socks.  If your child is a new micro player or a returning player who needs a larger size, you will be able to order these for an additional cost during the registration process.

Each child will also need shin guards and a size 3 soccer ball at each practice and game.  Cleats are not required but are highly recommended.

Fees

Your registration fees pay for league and state registration fees, referee fees, equipment, field maintenance and utility costs.

The fee for the Fall 2017 season is $100.

Coaches

Coaches at this level are volunteers.  They willingly give of their time and energy to our young players.  In return for their efforts they receive our appreciation, memories made with their children and a group of smiling faces.  Please consider becoming a coach and indicated your interest during registration.  You will be contacted.
