The King’s Warriors Soccer Club is excited to announce the beginning of the Youth Development League for this spring on Tuesday, March 17. Practices will be held every Tuesday at Hilldale Community Park near Talcott, and continue till May 26. Practices will begin at 5:30 PM, and run for 1-1 ½ hours, depending on age level.
Game days will be Sunday afternoons on April 5, 19, 26, and May 3, 17, and 31. No games on Easter, Mother’s Day, or Memorial Day weekend. Games will be scheduled between 2 and 5 PM so as to not interfere with church services.
You may sign up at the field on practice days, or print & fill out the form online by clicking here. Registration fee is $35/child. Checks may be made out to The Nehemiah Group, Inc., or simply TNG. Format
Format: We will introduce our young soccer players to a new style of play this year. It’s called FUNino (“Fun-ēēn-yō”), or “mini-soccer.” We will play on the same size fields as last year, with 3 players to a team. But now there will be TWO goals on each end, providing lots of opportunities for shooting and scoring goals. This training method has been sweeping across Europe, and we’re looking forward to implementing it with our players.
Age Divisions: We will have 3 age divisions: 1) Kindergarten-1st grade; 2) 2nd-4th grade; 3) 5th grade and up. Division placement is flexible based on players’ strengths and parents’ wishes. Older kids are invited to try out for the varsity King’s Warriors. So bring your friends to play soccer beginning Tuesday, March 17!
Practice Cancellations: Note: Practices are never cancelled. If it is raining or the temperature is below 50 degrees, we will practice at the Countryside Baptist Church gym at Forest Hill. (Do NOT wear cleats in the gymnasium; wear indoor soccer shoes or tennis shoes.)
