Additional Program Description
Ages 5-6 (children born in 2011 and 2012 for the 2017-18 season)
Young Scouts Overview
The Young Scouts League provides children the opportunity to learn soccer skills from nationally licensed coaches at weekly skill sessions and give them the opportunity to participate in weekly games against other teams in the program.
 
 The Young Scouts League has been designed to allow athletic kids who may have already been involved in AYSO or community soccer to further develop their soccer skills through training from nationally certified coaches.
 
Emphasis will be placed on the following:
-          Proper warm-up skills.
-          Soccer etiquette and respect for the coach and other players.
-          Skill development: Each child progresses at a different pace. Learning curves are unique for each player.
 
The goal of the Young Scouts Program is to provide technical instruction to allow a child to build solid fundamental soccer skills, as well as have fun and enjoy the game of soccer.
 
Tryouts are not required for Young Scouts. The program is an in-house league of evenly-skilled teams which play weekly games against other Young Scouts teams.
 
Teams
Teams are formed at the beginning of the Fall season. New teams will be added for "Spring only." The program has 8-10 teams which make up our in-house league. These teams play each other each weekend during the Fall and Spring seasons.
 
Practices and Games
Players participate in one practice session each week and one game each weekend. Practices are held of Thursdays or Fridays (your choice), with games taking place on Saturday mornings.
