Recreational Soccer is primarily devoted to the enjoyment and development of soccer players without the emphasis on travel or high-level competition. The purpose of recreational soccer is to provide an opportunity for the participants to have fun, be with friends, make new friends, learn the sport and develop life skills including a lifelong love of the game.
Our programs run 2 seasons per year – Spring which runs late March to early-June and Fall which runs late August through early November. There is separate on-line registration for each. On-line registration begins in late November for spring and late May for fall.
The Waldorf Soccer Club Recreational Program is broken up into three different programs (Kiddie Kicks, Junior Academy and SMYSL) with each one designed to meet the needs of the majority of youth soccer players from ages 2 to 19 years old. They are open programs in which players of all abilities are invited to play and enjoy the game. Every child is guaranteed playing time in an environment that places participation, fun, and skill development above winning.
The Kiddie Kicks and Junior Academy Programs (U4 & U6) are run by certified coaches to ensure our younger players receive the full attention and proper instruction of soccer fundamentals in a fun environment so they develop love for the game and build up skills and confidence to successfully proceed to more competitive levels of play. We encourage parents of U6 children to participate in coaching this group. Many u6 parents continue to coach their child's teams as they progress up the age group ladder. All practices and games are held at the Bryantown Sports Complex.
The U8 thru U19 SMYSL Program are made up of volunteer coaches, that are assigned a team of random players, without regard to each player's abilities and skills. The U8, U10, U12, U15 and U19 Rec Teams participate in the Charles County Parks and Rec, Southern Maryland Youth Soccer League (SMYSL). They practice at local practice fields, playing games against other WSC and La Plata Youth Soccer Association (LPYSA) Rec Teams at the Bryantown Sports Complex in Bryantown, MD or the Laurel Springs Regional Park in La Plata, MD.
If you are interested in volunteering as a coach or assistant coach for a U8 to U19 Rec Team or have additional questions about any of the programs, please contact the VP of Recreational at firstname.lastname@example.org.
