Recreational Program

SSJYSL's 2022 Recreational program

Recreational soccer provides a safe and fun environment for players of all ages to enjoy the beautiful game.  Recreational soccer is non-exclusionary; all players who register are accepted and assigned to a team regardless of prior experience or skill level.

Practices are held twice a week and run between 1-1½ hour per day. Practice field and time is left up to each individual coach. Teams will have one game each week on Saturdays and will play in an 8-10 week season. Older age groups might have games in house or against local travel teams. You may request to play with a friend if they are in the same age group/gender. NO REQUESTS ARE GUARANTEED.

Our rec teams are coached by volunteers - usually parents - who participate in a coaching clinic sponsored by the league prior to the season.

Age Groups - Player age group is based on the following age chart:

  • U8 (U7 & U8) - 01/01/2014 - 12/31/2015
  • U10 (U9 & U10) - 01/01/2012 - 12/31/2013
  • U12 (U11 & U12) - 01/01/2010 - 12/31/2011
  • U14 (U13 & U14)- 01/01/2008 - 12/31/2009
