FOREST HILL REC SOCCER
The purpose of the Forest Hill Recreation Soccer program is to provide a learning environment for children to develop their soccer skills with the goal of creating a positive experience for each child. We are partnered with the Harford Football Club (HFC), the travel arm of our program. Coaches from HFC along with some of their players will be working alongside the clinic coaches to provide guidance in how to run practices and in developing the skills of our program's participants. HFC and Soccer Source 360 will also conduct periodic coaching clinics for all coaches in our program.
We are using a new registration site this year. Please follow the prompts when registering your child. If you have any questions please contact Bob Nowaskey at the following address firstname.lastname@example.org
Registration, opening April 1st and running until June 30th, is available for players from ages 4-17 divided into the following groups:
Four and Five Year-Olds
Four and five year-old children will practice once per week on Saturdays from 11AM to 12:15PM. The four year-olds will be separated from the five year-olds. Teams will be co-ed and will be comprised of between 5-6 players. Training once again will be partnered with HFC. HFC players will aid in the training of our 4 & 5 year-old teams. This training will take place roughly the first 50 minutes of their time on Saturdays. The last 20 minutes the players participate in game-like settings, we will use a 3v3 format with no goalie.
Under 8 Age Group
This Group is coed. Game/practice will take place between 9:00 and 10:30 am and will be played 4vs 4 with no goalie.
The Under 8 age group is designed for six and seven year-olds (based on the child's age on July 31st). Teams will be co-ed and will be comprised of about 6 players.
Under 9 through Under 16 Age Group
These age groups (separate boys and girls teams) will begin practices on or around August 1st. Practices before the season begins will be held twice per week (once during the weekday as determined by the coach and once on Saturdays). When the season begins, practices will be held once per week during the weekdays and players will have a game on Saturdays. We are participate in the Northern Region Soccer League, which consists of teams from neighboring rec councils.
Under 18 Age Group
New this year, we have added an Under 18 age group. This will be a co-ed league. Players playing on high school teams will be eligible to play. If you make a high school team and qualify for the U16 age group you would not have been able to play rec in years past. This year if you are in the U16 age group and make a high school team you can play on a U18 team.
