SYA Recreational Soccer

Pee Wee (U4 - U5)

Our 'Pee Wee' program is a great way to let your youngster try soccer in an environment that is both age appropriate and creative. Your player will work with coaches who focus on fun soccer activities while integrating the soccer basics of foot skills, dribbling, passing, and shooting. Small sided games will be played at every session.  

Our Pee Wee program is coed and meets every Saturday at Bull Run Elementary School.   Your assigned crew will play at the same time every week. A shirt is included in the registration fee. You provide a size 3 ball & shin guards for safety. Cleats are recommended, but not required.

Recreational Program (U6 - U12)

Our Recreational Program cannot be beaten! No experience is necessary to play, and there are no tryouts. Our volunteer age group coordinators do their best to honor “special requests”, such as schedule conflicts, location, and practice days / times, and we strive to make the teams balanced between new and returning players.   

The Recreational Program includes at least one practice and one game per week. Our volunteer coaches are licensed within one year and SYA conducts background checks on all of our volunteers.  Starting with U6, teams are separated into boys and girls teams, and beginning with U9 an End of Season Tournament is played.  There are also opportunities for your player to be selected to the All-Star Team at the end of the season to play in an All-Star Tournament against other local leagues.  Recreational Program players should purchase a uniform to wear during games (Uniform Information).
