JUNIOR LEAGUES (for 11-17 year olds)

PeeWee & Jr. League Schedule

 

The league is co-ed and plays all of the games at the North County Soccer Park. The stadium-field (6 v 6) and the mini-field (3 v 3) allow for continuous action and enables all the Junior players to practice the important soccer skills such as shooting, dribbling, passing, and ball control. Because the fields are so conducive to learning, the Junior league is designed as a “learn through experience” style program. Registration is for an 8-game season.

The Junior coaches are volunteers (Moms or Dads) who are not required to have a substantial soccer background. The coaches are expected to organize the Juniors on the field, make substitutions so that all the players play approximately half the game, and provide positive encouragement and feedback. The coaches are not required to give extensive, soccer instruction. In fact, teams are discouraged from holding organized practices although it is allowed and occasionally Junior teams do practice.

THINGS TO DO AFTER YOU HAVE REGISTERED

  • Outfit your child with shin guards (mandatory), shorts, a size 4 or 5 ball, and water. On our fields we suggest rubber-molded cleats (NO metal cleats allowed).
