Rec Council Soccer
Welcome to St. James Academy Rec Soccer!
The SJA Soccer program is designed for kids of all ability levels to provide a fun and instructional soccer experience. Practice begins the last week of August with the season ending the first week of November. Please sign up for your appropriate age group.
Boys and Girls – Under 12, Under 10, and Under 8. Practice will be held once a week at St. James Academy. The day and time will be determined by the coach of each team. If you want to coach or assist please choose that option in the registration. All games will be held at St. James Academy or Carroll Manor Rec (Hydes Road Park – 5607 Hydes Road, Hydes, MD 21082), on Saturdays, between 8 am -12 pm.
Hot Shots is for kids 4-5 years of age with no games. Practices will start the first Saturday after the school year begins. It will run until the last Saturday in October. Hot Shots soccer is an entry-level, clinic-style program for boys and girls who have turned four by the start of our soccer season. Teams focus on ball-handling skills and basic rules of soccer (kicking, passing, hands-free, sidelines, overhead throws, positions). The first 3-4 weeks consist of skills and drills and progress to mini-games between the team for the remainder of the season.
Players are required to purchase and wear shin guards and soccer cleats for all age groups.
Registration closes on August 1st!
We look forward to a great season of soccer with your child!
