BLOOMINGDALE RECREATION DEPARTMENT 

Spring Soccer 2017 in Bloomingdale



Every Spring and Fall, Bloomingdale Recreation will be offering youth soccer.


We will be offering this league with Pooler.  Home games will be in Bloomingdale.  Away games will be at the Pooler Complex.


All leagues are coed with boys and girls playing together.  The control date is January 1, 2017 for the Spring season.


And the control date is August 1, 2017 for the Fall season.


U4 Soccer (2 & 3 year olds)---This is a beginners soccer season with training once a week working into scrimmages and possibly some games.  This age group will prepare your little ones to play soccer.  This is only offered in the Fall.


U6 Soccer (4 & 5 year olds)---This is an introductory soccer league.  Each team will have 6 players or more on the field at a time.  


U8 Soccer (6 & 7 year olds)---This age group adds the use of a goalie and adds more competition.  This league also utilizes 6 players on the field at a time.  


U10 Soccer (8 & 9 year olds)---This age group adds the offside rule to get children closer to playing the real game of soccer.  There are 6 players from each team on the field.  Children in this age group begin to learn the passing game of soccer.


U13 Soccer (10, 11, 12 year olds)---This is our oldest soccer age group right now.  We will be trying to add a U14 age group.  This age group still plays with 6 players at a time, but the soccer play is at a much higher level.  Players in this age group learn to use their head and body more in soccer.  They also learn formations and offside traps.
