Recreational U4-U12


UFA Metro Recreational Soccer Program

The Recreational Soccer Program offers an opportunity for youth players (ages 4U to 12U) to play soccer at a less challenging and competitive level, while still placing an emphasis on learning and having fun.  Our Recreational  Soccer is entirely coached by parent and community volunteers.  


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.

Please consider helping out! Fill out this google doc and register as a volunteer coach when registering. (Please see this Document for more info)

Please be reminded that in order to be placed on a team your balance must be paid in full. No child will be placed on a team with an outstanding balance.
All discounts will be applied at the check out stage! If you choose not to volunteer this season, an additional $35 will be applied to your registration fee. If you do choose to volunteer the $35 dollars is waived. The teams are Coed.
Our recreation league practices and games are held at Keswick Park & Dresden Park. Practices can be Monday- Friday due to the Volunteer Coaches Discretion. U4 practice on Saturdays only.

Special Requests
Please note, you are registering for a program and not a specific team. As always, we will do our best to honor any special requests, but they ARE NOT guaranteed. The last day to submit special requests is Feb.10th
Requests to Play Up an Age Group
Generally, players will play in their own age group, but occasionally players will want to play up an age group.  Any player wishing to play up to the next age group must first be assessed and approved by the Recreational Director by the Assessment date at the latest. If approved, the Recreational Director will then go into the registration database and move the player to the division they will be playing up to.

No player will be added to a recreational team until the participation fees have been received and recorded. Recreational registration must be completed for each season, spring and fall.

The 04U Mini League is a FUN introductory program designed for boys and girls who were born from January 1, 2017 - to December 31, 2017. This is a success-based program designed to develop a player’s confidence and a life-long love of the game of soccer. The Mini League program is run in a parent/child clinic format. We will have a Professional Trainer assisted by the parent/s of each player. We will work on soccer skills each week through a variety of games and activities. There are no set teams.
The 6-week long season takes place on Saturdays ( Time is TDB) The cost per season is $90 which includes a t-shirt. Each player will receive a participation award at the end of each season.
05U-12U Recreational League is Coed
Each 05U-12U team requires a volunteer parent coach from each team. 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.
