U6 - U10 Rec
Our Rec program is a great entry level program for children learning the game of soccer. We play fun games teaching them the fundamentals of soccer, while learning important concepts such as teamwork, determination, and persistance.
U10 - U14 Competitive
Our competitive program is the next step up from our Rec program. This program is offered for players birth years 2009 - 2015. We continue teaching important concepts learned in the Rec program, while increasing complexity and instilling the fundimentals of soccer in every player.
U18 Competitive is our High School Boys elite offseason program. The goal of this program is to increase chemistry, endurance, and fundimentals to prepare the boys for the fall high school season.
Our Rec Program is a player-centered program for Boys and Girls in the U6 to U10 age groups (PreK - 4th grade). We use small-sided games and exercises, individual skill activities, and movement education as our teaching tools. Our players will develop their confidence, have tons of fun, all while learning the fundamentals of soccer.
We offer two separate sessions, one spring and one fall. Spring season program runs April 15 - May 20, while the fall season program runs late August - early October. The program maintains an appropriate training to game ratio throughout the seasonal year.
Each session will run a total of 6 consecutive Saturdays. All training sessions will occur on Saturday mornings behind the district office at the Somerset, WI public school campus. A detailed schedule is as follows:
- U10 - 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
- U8 - 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m.
- U6 - 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
We will provide a shirt for each participant of the spring and fall sessions. Ball should be brought by each player to the training sessions. We will have balls available for purchase (not included with season fee). We will have spare balls available if your player forgets his/her ball for the training session. The last session of spring and fall will have pizza provided (no additional cost) to all players and family.
We encourage players who are ready to make the jump to competitive to do so as early as possible. This will enable them to further develop their soccer skills and love for the game.
U10 - U14 Competitive
Our U10 - U14 Competitive program for Boys and Girls is the next step after our Rec program. This program gives players more exposure and a deeper understanding for the game of soccer. We continue to use small-sided games and exercises, individual skill activities, and movement education as our teaching tools.
We currently offer two seasons, Spring and Fall. Each team is broken out by gender & age group. Age groups by birth year are as follows:
- U10 (2013 - 2015)
- U12 (2011 & 2012)
- U14 (2009 & 2010)
Typically, each team will practice twice per week with 4-5 tournaments per season. Tournaments/Jamborees are played generally on Saturdays, with the occasional weekend long tournament.
The spring and fall season both typically run for around two months each. Spring will start whenever the weather cooperates with us, usually early April and end early/mid June, depending on tournament schedule. Fall season typically starts mid/late August and runs to mid October, again depending on tournament schedule.
We do our best to schedule practices around other in-season sports enabling players to play multiple sports.
Our U18 Competitive program is our top flight program which aims to prepare the high school boys for the fall High School Season.
