Fall Soccer 2020
For the health and safety of our community and to help prevent the spread of Covid-19, we have decided not to coordinate a fall soccer program in 2020. Minimizing unnecessary exposure to the virus so that kids can stay in school and families can remain healthy is or top priority. We hope to offer more youth sports options in the near future. Check back for details.
Please note: Information below was from our 2019 program and is for reference only!
Kindergarten Co-Ed Soccer: Tuesdays, September 10 - October 1 from 6:00 - 6:45pm.
Kindergarten soccer will mirror some of the same drills and games that we play at the Pee-Wee level, but then we will introduce scrimmaging, usually the last half of practice. Kids will be divided into teams each week with a volunteer coach (volunteers needed) to lead a combined practice and game. An emphasis will be placed on being part of a team, skill development, fun, and an introduction to the rules of the game.
Grades 1 & 2 Co-Ed Soccer: Games held on Saturdays, September 14 - October 19.
Practices will be held on Wednesdays starting at 5:30pm at Standish Memorial Park. Players will be placed on co-ed teams with a volunteer coach (volunteer coaches needed). There will be one practice on Wednesday and a game played against other Standish teams on Saturday mornings. An emphasis will be placed on skill development, fun, and field positioning.
Grades 3 & 4 Soccer: Games held on Saturdays, September 7 - October 12.
Practices will be held on Thursdays starting at 6:00pm at Standish Memorial Park. Players will be placed on teams, and depending on registrations, it may be co-ed, with a volunteer coach (volunteer coaches needed). There will be one practice on Thursday and a game played against surrounding communities on Saturdays. Parents should expect to travel to games outside of Standish.
Grades 5 - 7 Soccer: Games held on Saturdays, September 7 - October 12.
Practices will be held on Thursdays starting at 5:30pm at Johnson Field. Players will be place on teams, and depending on the registrations, it may be co-ed, with a volunteer coach (volunteer coaches need). There will be one practice on Thursdays and games played against surround communities on Saturdays. This is a recreation travel team which will have 1-2 practices per week (Thursdays and potentially another day), and then a game on Saturdays. Parents should expect to travel to games outside of Standish.
*We are unable to accommodate special requests for team placement. If you are a coach of a team, your child will be placed on the team you coach. Each age division will practice on the same day and time regardless of team placement.
The success of this program relies heavily on parent volunteers. No experience is necessary! We can help you. If you enjoy working with kids and can follow a weekly curriculum provided by the recreation department, then you are well on your way to making a positive impact on a child in your community! We need you! You will always be teamed up with a co-coach, so you won't have to handle it alone. A 50% program fee credit will be applied to all volunteer coaches at the end of the season. Please fill our a volunteer coaches application below.
In the event of game cancellations due to poor weather conditions, there will be a message on the Recreation Department's website and Facebook page. This message will not be posted until 4:00pm during the week or 8:00am for Saturday games. The message will only be posted if the game has been cancelled - if there is no message you should assume all games will be played. Games might not be made up due to weather.
