Sockers FC Juniors Program

Sockers FC Juniors is a co-ed soccer program for players 5-7 years old.




The Sockers FC Juniors program focuses on building balance, coordination and fundamental soccer skills. This program provides a more advanced age specific approach to soccer. Sockers FC Juniors works on enhancing individual and team skills through emphasizing fun and effort in every drill. There will be one practice and one inner club league game per week. The program is suited for players looking for more of a challenge than recreational soccer in a fun and safe learning experience. Players learn more advanced fundamental soccer skills through fun, age-appropriate and creative skill building games and have the opportunity to practice those skills in a non-competitive game.


Practices and games will be located at Soccer City Indoor Arenas or outdoors at Rose Park, directly behind Soccer City.

Our practices and games have the ability to move outdoor or indoor depending on the weather. The outdoor field is steps away from the indoor facility so if weather takes a turn for the worse we simply move inside or if the weather decides to be lovely and warm we simply move outside. This gives us the ability to create a controlled positive soccer experience for your child and a consistent calendar to accommodate your busy schedules with no cancelations due to poor conditions.




Our coaches are USSF license coaches also educated and focused in the grassroots philosophy of player development. All coaches share United States Soccer Federation best practices in creating a fun, activity-centered and age-appropriate environment. All games and practice will be staffed by us so just sit back and relax because we do all the coaching and planning just bring the snacks!!
