The Recreation program is for beginning soccer players or kids who want to play without the pressure of winning. The Recreation program provides balanced, competitive play while developing players, coaches, and referees without the additional costs and commitment of time required by highly competitive leagues. Players are guaranteed 50 percent playing time during the season and tournament play. The focus is on teaching players the fundamental skills of the game. Families may choose to participate in either the spring seasons or both fall and spring. The fall season generally begins shortly after Labor Day, and the spring season generally begins in March. Teams usually play six to eight games over the course of 8 to 9 weeks. Practices are limited to no more than twice a week at no more than an hour at a time. Practices generally begin two weeks before the first game.
Teams will be formed to provide the opportunity for each player to play and have fun while also growing and developing. Co-ed teams will be formed and each player will receive a soccer shirt.
Each team will have a volunteer coach and will need parents to volunteer to help manage and coach the team when necessary.
Volunteer coaches are an integral part of helping this league run smoothly. Coaches will receive educational support and equipment from CVU trained staff. No previous playing or coaching background is needed to coach the younger levels of rec soccer. Watching the players grow and develop is an extremely rewarding experience. If you are able to provide lots of positive reinforcement and able to be patient with both players and parents, we encourage you to consider volunteering as a coach.
All games will be played at the CVU Soccer Complex (5635 Campbell Highway, Lynchburg, VA, 24501).
We have teams practicing at Peaks View Park, CVU Complex and other approved locations throughout the season.
