Rec Soccer

Information

The SWSC Rec Soccer Program is for players Pre-K (age 4) to 7th grade and is designed as an introduction to soccer with a mix of skill training and game play with an emphasis on fun. All ages are “non-results orientated” meaning there are no official game scores or standings. Coaches have no disincentive to play everyone equally and to move players around the field in all different positions. Players are free to try things, make mistakes, learn, and have fun.

Volunteer Coaches

Please Consider Volunteering

Like most recreation-level youth sports programs, we depend on Volunteer Parent Coaches. We try to have two (or more) coaches for each team so that a parent does not need to be there for every session to volunteer. Soccer and/or coaching experience is nice but not required especially at the younger ages – we will provide coaching assistance.
