Throughout our program we must remember that we are providing a service for kids. Kids play because they want to enjoy themselves and so the program we provide should always be enjoyable. We aim to provide all players with a genuine player pathway for development, i.e. the ability to progress to the level of soccer each player is capable of and wants to. Players of all ages must attend camps and clinics offered by our professional staff if they are talented and enthusiastic to progress in the game. This program is to provide fun, enjoyment and team athletic opportunity for players of all abilities and is all about participation in the game of soccer. Let’s not take it too serious and allow the players to get the most out of their soccer experience.
Goals of the Recreational Program

- The Club’s philosophy, codes of conduct and the theme of coaches’ clinics will promote enjoyment of the sport.
- Sport and in particular soccer are excellent tools to develop sportsmanship and other life skills.
- We will achieve these goals by impacting what the players do at practice sessions and games throughout the recreational program, by offering camps and clinics to further develop skills.
