SRA Town Soccer is a developmentally appropriate program for the youngest soccer players, both beginner and intermediate players. Town Soccer focuses on instilling a love of the game, developing skills, making friends, and having fun. In the fall, players are assigned to small teams for league play, although no official records are kept. In the winter and spring, we provide opportunities for players to develop basic skills and scrimmage. SRA Town soccer is a program for U6-U10. Parent volunteers are essential to Town Soccer. We will cap registration early and continue to admit players from the waitlist as more coaches volunteer.

Winter Indoor Town Soccer
Indoor town soccer is for kids ages 4-8. We will take a deeper dive into the skills we learned at Fall Town Soccer and play some small scrimmages. First-time soccer players are welcome. All sessions will be played on the indoor turf at the Springfield YMCA. Session size is limited. We need a few volunteers for each session. This is a great way to learn drills for your future as a soccer coach, but if you don’t know anything about soccer, that’s OK. We will teach you.
