Note: Age groups and schedules mentioned below describe how the recreation program is typical organized. However, the Board of Directors reserves the right to make changes as necessary based on the number of registrations received and the availability of fields.
 
All players receive a shirt and ball, and are assigned to a mixed gender team led by a volunteer coach.   All players are required to wear shin guards.  Cleats are recommended, but not required.
 
U6 Boys & Girls - 4 and 5 years old as of December 31st following the Fall season

Players at this age practice once a week (Saturday mornings at Quaker Farms School) for eight weeks starting in early September.  All sessions are run by a professional trainer, assisted by volunteer coaches.  The focus at this level is an introduction to soccer and the basic foundational skills necessary to progress within the sport – all done in a positive, fun, active, and safe environment.  

U8 Boys & Girls - 6 and 7 years old as of December 31st following the Fall season

Players at this age practice once a week (Saturday mornings at Quaker Farms School) with a professional trainer assisted by volunteer parent coaches.  They also play a game once a week against other teams within the division.  The focus at this level is to help players progress in the areas of fundamental skill development and knowledge of the sport, and offer them the opportunity to employ those skills in a casually competitive environment.

U10 Boys & Girls - 8 and 9 years old as of December 31st following the Fall season

Players at this age practice twice a week (once with their team and once with professional trainers assisted by their volunteer coaches.)  They also play a game once a week against other teams within the town’s U9 division.  The focus at this level is to help players refine their soccer skills and knowledge of the game.  There is a greater focus on team play and game tactics.  The ultimate goal is to develop these players’ skills, confidence, soccer knowledge, and overall readiness to move onto the travel level.
