Recreational Soccer Programs

Recreational Soccer

GFC is Scott County's home for Recreational Soccer.

Recreational soccer is about one thing: FUN! We want our players to learn the game of soccer in a fun and safe environment. We equip our volunteer coaches with age-appropriate activities that help their players on game day.  USSF Certified coaches will also receive a fee waiver for their players.  Please contact us if you are interested in taking one of the courses.

                    US Soccer Divides Age Groups by calendar year of birth.  Below is their chart.

 

First Kicks (Ages 4 and under)

Want your player to get a head start on learning the game of soccer? Our First Kicks program is led by a licensed GFC coach that will help your players get an early start on ball mastery, gross motor skill development, and taking the first steps away from parents and onto the playing field.

The First Kicks program meets on Monday nights and players must be registered to join in on the fun.

6U Recreational Soccer (Ages 5 & 6)

Is your player ready to give soccer a try? Our 6U Recreational Soccer provides players the opportunity to learn the game through a mix of fun activities and game days. The focus for our players is to have fun while learning the fundamental foot skills.

Our games are 3v3 (no goalkeepers) to be sure that all players are involved in the game and getting their chance to score a goal! Practices are generally held on Tuesdays or Thursdays and games are played on Saturday mornings. Our 6U players will be on the field for about two hours per week.

8U Recreational Soccer (Ages 7 & 8)

Is it too late for my player to give soccer a try? It’s never too late! Our 8U Recreational Soccer builds on what our players have already learned, and we will be sure your player catches up on the basics of the game. Our 8U program is based on fun games and activities to learn the game and then we give all our players a chance to shine on game day!

Our games are 4v4 (no goalkeepers) to be sure that all players are involved in the game and getting their chance to score a goal! Practices are generally held on Tuesdays or Thursdays and games are played on Saturday mornings. Our 8U players will be on the field for about two hours per week.

Some of our players at age seven and eight, move into our Pre-Academy or Academy. These programs are designed for our players that want to take their soccer to the next level. Learn more by visiting our Academy Soccer page.

10U, 12U, 14U, and 19U Recreational Soccer

GFC partners with other clubs in central Kentucky to offer an Inter-club league. This provides some new competition for our GFC teams and all games either at our home field or a short drive from Georgetown.

Club Training (U8 - U10 age groups)

If you're looking for more than recreational soccer but not ready to commit to a full competitive season, we will provide the opportunity of weekly training sessions led by our coaching staff and assisted by our Select players.  The sessions will help players improve their gross motor skills and technical ability with ball mastery, passing, shooting, and 1v1 activities. The goal is to improve competence and confidence on the ball. We hope to build a love for the game of soccer in a low-pressure environment.
