Summer Rec/House League FAQ's

EXCITING NEWS ABOUT SOCCER, 2018 in Chautauqua County

US Soccer has made some changes and they are reflected in our format of coaching and training this season. We are excited about this change and have already received some great feedback from our travel and winter Futsal players. All coaches will receive training on the new methodology and will be utilizing a “Play, Practice, Play” model for coaching. This gets kids out on the field, playing the game from the second they arrive, keeping them engaged in the soccer experience from the start of practice through the car ride home! At our youngest ages (6&8U), practices will be held as a group with many coaches and volunteers helping to keep a game like atmosphere, focusing on only one key principle each practice. Because of this format change, your child will have several coaches, (in fact, every single one) during your time slot. Along the same line, you’ll note that we have removed the option to request to be on the same “team” as another player. Children will be coached together on practice days and then broken up in to teams on game days only.
