Rec Council Soccer
Welcome to St. James Academy Rec Soccer! There will be Boys and Girls Under 12, Under 10, and Under 8. Games are held at St. James and Carroll Manor on Saturday mornings and early afternoons. Each coach sets the practice schedule for their team, and generally, there are 1-2 practices per week. All players must have shin-guards, cleats, and a water bottle for practices and games.
All teams are coached by parents of the players and there are many opportunities to get involved as a coach, assistant, or volunteer. The program emphasizes the Positive Coaching Alliance with the focus on the joy of soccer and teaching life lessons through sports. The goal is to have children look forward to practice, playing real games, building relationships, and learning sportsmanship.
