About Open Soccer:

Open Soccer is simply playing the game without training or stoppages for coaching. "After school pick-up games" or "street soccer". At each play session players will be roughly divided by age and skill and then just play.  All players U12 and younger in our club are invited and encouraged to attend weekly!

Deliberate play is often overlooked and is vital for developing creative soccer players. It inspires problem solving, conflict resolution and develops cognitive skills players need to be able to think for themselves.

Open Soccer is scheduled on both the outdoor turf field and the indoor field house - field assignments may change from week to week so please plan for inside or outside play each week!  Outside of any inclement weather, Open Soccer will take place every Thursday during the fall from 5:30-7:00pm...lights will be turned on for the outdoor field so no need to adjust the schedule for daylight savings!

Please bring shin guards, water, and a soccer ball!
