We offer 2 divisions for spring youth soccer: ages 4-5 and ages 6-8. Practices are held once a week at SPC with games on Saturday mornings at SPC. Practices are 45 minutes for ages 4-5 and 60 minutes for ages 6-8. Each practice includes a short Bible time. Teams are coed. The spring season runs from April to May.

Our soccer program is run Academy style. Ages 4-5 play 3 vs. 3 with no goalkeeper and ages 6-8 play 4 vs. 4 with no goalkeeper. We have larger teams of 10-12 for practices each week, then divide the teams in half for games each Saturday morning. We have used this style for several years and seen growth in our soccer program because the players enjoy it.

Academy style allows the players more touches on the ball and less time sitting on the bench. With less players on the field, every player is able to stay involved in the play and has the opportunity to score a goal. The Academy style of soccer is endorsed and recommended by the United States Youth Soccer Association.
