Spring Recreational Program 2018 Ages 5-12 (2006-2012)

Our Academy Rec program is designed to give players who are just starting out or are less committed the ability to play in a less competitive atmosphere and to focus on their technical foundation (basic soccer skills), so they can develop at their own pace. The rec program is coached by volunteer coaches, who follow the Rapids Curriculum, and are given many resources to ensure the players are exposed to healthy and fun environment.  We want to get our players excited about the game and concentrate on developing basic skills to allow them success as they move up in age.  The format of the recreational program will be dependent on our registration numbers.  We’ll keep you updated as we approach the season, to let our families know what to expect.

We are offering this program using the same format as our fall recreational format - 8 weeks, volunteer coaches, games against local competition on Saturdays. We would like to offer soccer for those players in the spring who would like to continue to develop their skills!
