Items to note about Recreational Soccer:

  • The coaches are volunteers, and many times are generally less experienced than Certified Coaches of the competitive teams. Many parents who volunteer coaches, move up as their child moves up, in order to continue coaching their child's team.

  • 4U to 8U intra-club games are only played on Saturday mornings. No makeup games required. It is optional, and up to the coach and parents to reschedule any rainout games.

  • U9 to U10 occasional games set up with Elgin team requiring one week of travel and/or with Academy Blaze teams (held at home) to increase level of competition. 

  • U12 (Div 3) games are played on Saturday and some Sundays. Travel 50%. Makeup games are required.

  • It is only a single season commitment (Fall or Spring). You must sign up at each season.
