SOCCER

Indoor & Outdoor — Boys & Girls

Our program is open to Sylvania Recreation District residents as well as non-residents and is intended for children of all ability levels. The philosophy of our soccer programs is to promote a fun learning experience in an organized environment. The program will help each child improve on the skills of the game from the beginning to the end of the season through sound coaching. Our volunteer coaches will place emphasis on teaching the fundamentals, working as a team and having fun. Register today your child today and begin making great sports memories.

Teams are organized based on child’s current grade and registration numbers. Some leagues may be co-ed if necessary. Recreational teams could potentially play games against travel teams based on enrollment or ability to form separate competitive divisions. There are no practices for this program.

Teams that use the “Team Registration” option must provide their own jerseys. Children in Pre-K through 8th grade who register as individuals will be required to use the blue/gray reversible Sylvania Soccer Academy uniforms (available at Tam-O-Shanter Pro Shop). All players must wear shin guards. It is recommended that children wear cleats and bring their own ball. For more information, contact our office at 419.882.1500.
