Mini-Soccers

Overview

Mini-Soccers consists of a combined practice/play session. It is designed to introduce children to the game of soccer through play and small-sided games. For the Spring season all sessions are on Friday nights. For the Fall season, the first five sessions are on Friday night, and the last five are on Saturday afternoon. We don't have lights on the Mini-Soccers fields and it is too dark to play on Friday nights late in the Fall.

This is a parent/child program. A parent or guardian must be present at each session. BSC does not do fundraisers, but we do need at least 2 coaches per team. Please volunteer when you register online.

 

Eligibility

Any boy or girl that will be 4 years old on the day of the first game. See the calendar for exact dates. This program is limited to 80 participants only.

When/Where are Practices and Games?

Fall Mini-Soccers are on Friday nights 6-7pm for the first 4 games, then they move to Saturday afternoons 2-3pm. Start date 8/17, end date 10/26. Practices and games are held during that same time. There are no additional practice times. All games/practices will be at the West Lily Cache soccer fields. See the Fields menu for maps and directions. See the Mini-Soccers calendar for dates.

There will be kickoffs, and coaches may help with throw-ins. There are no goalies, fouls, offsides, or scorekeeping.
