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, learn the sport and develop life skills including a life long love of the game.

Recreational Soccer program is for boys and girls of all skill levels ages 4-13 who want to play soccer for fun!

Our mission is to provide a high quality recreational soccer program for Marlboro, Milton and the surrounding communities.

Our goal is to have fun while introducing children to the sport of soccer as well as to the concepts of teamwork, competition and sport.

The games are played on Saturdays from 9AM to 3PM. The recreational program is structured so that the first 20 min is used for practice that focuses on soccer skill development through drills. The remaining time, players will play games, consisting of 4 quarters.

Recreational soccer runs twice each year in the fall (from September thru October) and spring (from April thru June)
