AFSC RECREATIONAL SOCCER SPONSORED BY TEAM AUTOMOTIVE GROUP

The AFSC Recreational League is designed as a fun instruction-based soccer league for 5 to 18-year-old boys and girls. These leagues combine learning in a fun and positive environment, and the excitement of league through play. Each session is designed to introduce young players to fundamental, age appropriate soccer techniques through fun games, and then players put these newly learned skills immediately into their game. The program operates under the simple philosophy that kids learn by playing. Thus, everyone plays virtually 100% of the time, in both practice and games – no lines, short explanations and lots of touches on the ball.

It is our goal that through volunteer coaching and by playing in a fun-filled environment which encourages learning, that this program will provide children with the foundation to enjoy the game of soccer for many years to come. All our volunteer coaches have been subjected to background checks and concussion awareness training, will be recommended to gain their USSF Grassroots Coaching License as part of our ongoing Coach Development.
