Our Recreational Program currently consists of players from the age of 5 through the age of 12. Please take note that there is no skill level requirement at any age, i.e., we will have children of all levels participating on each team in our program. We have developed a system that provides both a fun and productive environment for players at all levels.
Although our focus is predominantly on the enjoyment of playing the game, we would also like to utilize our time effectively with the children by teaching them as much as possible about the game and the skills needed to excel in the sport.
Each team is coached by a volunteer parent coach, however we provide UFA staff trainers who work with the teams. Recreational games will be played twice a week on Tuesdays or Thursdays, as well as on Saturdays for 10 weeks beginning on Tuesday Sept. 7th/ Thursday Sept. 9th, and Saturday Sept. 11th. Last games will be played Nov. 2nd/Nov. 3rd and Nov. 6th.
*Please note, all registration is done online. Fee for all ages is $99. Please click on REGISTRATION to begin.For questions regarding the Recreational program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
