Legacy Park Youth Activities offers a recreational soccer league for Legacy Park’s children, ages 3 through 13. Younger children start out in the small sided program that is designed to enhance each individual child’s skill level by maximizing the amount of time they touch the ball and to provide a non-competitive environment where learning and fun are emphasized. Older children are taught skills and rules of the game. Legacy Park abides by the “Laws of the Game” as published by FIFA with some modifications made for youth players.

The coordinators, coaches and assistant coaches are ALL volunteers. We appreciate their time and commitment. Most of the parents are not professional soccer players, but just being a leader to the children is important. If you know what a soccer ball looks like, you are qualified to coach or assist. Important: While registering your players, please consider volunteering your time to make the soccer program a success. Coaches and Assistant Coaches are needed.
