NORTHERN TRIAD SOCCER CLUB

Recreation Program

Northern Triad’s Recreation Soccer Program offers a non-competitive environment in which we hope to provide the best learning environment for each player. The recreation program will teach the fundamental skills of soccer as well as introducing match play scenarios during practice while building a love and passion for soccer.

Due to current COVID-19 state restrictions, our practice and game structure is subject to change. Please be patient with us as we work diligently to navigate our program admits this difficult time. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at [email protected] In accordance with NCYSA and rules developed with our playing partners, please read our Fall 2020 Policies and Procedures document.

Unfortunately, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Free 5U program this season out of caution and safety concerns. As you can imagine, it will be very difficult to keep children in that age group separated. We will look to bring the program back in the Spring 2021 season. In the meantime, we have adjusted our 6U program to allow for additional age range.


Team Format

Players will be assigned to a team based on their birth year. They will practice and play scheduled games with their assigned team for the season. Teams are limited to a set player roster size to allow for more one-on-one time with their coach as well as give them more touches on the ball.

U8-U14 Teams play weekly games on Saturdays, game times will vary. We will play within our club as well as other clubs in our area. Away games will require travel; however, we will attempt to keep the distance within a 20-minute radius. Game schedules will be posted to the club calendar once teams are set.



Teams

The number of teams within our recreational program will depend on the numbers of players to sign up within each age division. We hope to form at least 2-4 teams per age group.

Players are required to bring a soccer ball (sized for their age division, U5-U8 - Size 3, U10-U12 Size 4, U14 - Size 5) and shin guards to each practice. Shin guards are to be worn under long socks. Your child will not be allowed to practice or play without shin guards for safety purposes. Drink breaks are given often, so please bring your child a drink to rehydrate. Cleats are not required but are recommended. Soccer cleats only, all other sport cleats are not allowed.

For practices, any style athletic clothing is acceptable and please dress appropriately for the weather conditions. Watches, earrings, bracelets and or necklaces must be removed unless required for medical reasons. U6-U14 players will receive a Red or White numbered jersey for game days as a part of their program fee. Red shorts and socks must be purchased separately to complete their game day uniform. Any brand so long as they are both primarily red.

Coaches are 100% Volunteer. Interested in volunteering? We need your help to maximize the number of teams. Please let us know or signup to volunteer when you register your child. For parents who volunteer to coach a team, your child will play for FREE! (limited to one child, to be reimbursed at the end of the season).

A coaching clinic will be held at the beginning of each season to discuss the season’s curriculum and offer training tips and drills.
