Soccer - Spring Learn, Play, Fun
Youth Soccer Spring 2017 Learn, Play, Fun
With the establishment of a rival soccer program in town, the New Canaan Recreation Department will continue to offer Recreation Soccer in the spring and fall seasons for grades Kindergarten through sixth grades. We will maintain to provide our quality program for New Canaan children and parents. Recreation Soccer is divided into the following grade divisions: Kindergarten co-ed; First Grade co-ed; Second & Third Boys; Second & Third Girls; Fourth-Sixth Boys; Fourth-Sixth Girls. The program is held on Saturdays at Waveny Park from mid-April through early June. All children are assigned to a team with volunteer coaches. This is a Saturday only program.
The main focus and emphasis of the Recreation Soccer Program is to teach children fundamental soccer skills within the framework of good sportsmanship and fun. Our program blends the parental supervision and control of the children with learning and a less competitive environment. It allows families to participate together and develop healthy social relationships within the community. Players will have the opportunity to play all positions and learn the responsibilities of being a team member.
The program is in need of Saturday volunteer coaches and assistant coaches. Prior experience is helpful but not necessary. Anyone interested in coaching or assisting can sign-up at the time of registration or call the Recreation Department. Registration begins February 1 online or at the Recreation Office.
