Recreational Soccer Program

The recreational program is offered for players ages 4 to 13. This program is not coed, and involves light travel for players with the ages of 9 thru 14. All skill levels are invited to participate. Teams in this program practice 1-2 times per week, and play games either Friday Night or Saturday. Some of the games will be held at a home field in Myerstown, and there will be some travel to neighboring towns. The goal of this program is to continue to encourage individual and team skills in a lightly competitive environment.
