RECREATION SOCCER – It’s the Player’s Game

The purpose of Recreation soccer is to provide an opportunity for the participants to have FUN, learn the sport and develop life skills including a life-long love of the game.

Recreation Soccer: A soccer program that is primarily devoted to the enjoyment and development of soccer players without the emphasis on travel or high level competition.

Recreation Player: A player who is assigned to a team without regard to his/her abilities and skills.

Recreation Team: Teams are formed randomly and play only against other PSA teams for fun. Game scores and league standings not recorded.

The Fusion Soccer Club / US Youth Soccer Recreation Program is designed for the beginning or developing player. Newcomers to the game of soccer are welcome, beginning at 4 years young.

We provide a fun, safe and healthy experience for ALL KIDS...big kids, little kids, tall kids, short kids, young kids, older kids...kids who want to play for one or more seasons.  More importantly, it’s for kids who want to play in a relaxed atmosphere, strictly for FUN, while sharpening their individual skills and learning more about the game.

Kids are different, and because they are different their physical, social and psychological needs are different. We at FSC / US Youth Soccer recognize this and our programs are aimed at meeting the different needs of all kids.

FSC/US Youth Soccer provides a healthy activity through its Recreation Program, with a small-sided games approach. These programs emphasize FUN, participation and de-emphasize winning at all costs.

Every child is guaranteed playing time and the game is taught in a FUN, relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.

US Youth Soccer Player Participation Objectives

  • Fun! It is critical that players involved in youth soccer enjoy the game in which they are playing. If the organization is able to instill a passion and enjoyment int he game then half the battle is already won. This also relates very closely to how players perceive their coach(es) and their interaction with them. One of the main reasons players under 12 decide not to continue is that they no longer are enjoying the game, it has become work.
  • Development: A necessary element to support fun. Without it, training and games get stale because there is no improvement.
  • Life skills: In our case through the sport of soccer.
