Program Description

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. The program is available for all children from ages 5-15 and is divided into the following groups:

5 Year-Old Program 

Children must turn 5 by August 31st to be eligible to participate in the program. Children who participate in the Rainbow program practice one day per week (Saturdays) from 11AM to 12:15PM on the fields at the recreation complex. The teams are co-ed. The program runs from the end of August to the end of October. The first several weeks of the program consist of teaching and developing fundamental skills through drills. The remaining weeks of the program consist of 30 minutes of practice followed by a 30 minute game. The season ends with a league party and all participants receive a trophy to recognize their involvement in the program.

Parents who have registered their children for this program will be contacted by mid-August. There is no need to make inquiries about the status of your child's registration prior to that point.

Under 8

The Under 8 (U8) program is for 6 and 7-year old children. July 31st is the date for determining the age group in which you should register your child. (For example, if your child turns 8 on July 10th, he/she should play in Under 9. Conversely, If your child turns 8 on September 10th, he/she should register in the U8 program. Children who participate in the U8 program practice one day per week (Saturdays) from 9AM to 10:30AM on either the fields at the recreation complex or on the fields behind Forest Lakes Elementary School. The program runs from the end of August to the end of October. The first half of each day consists of a team practice and the teams play games during the remaining 45 minutes of practice. The season ends with a league party and all participants receive a trophy to recognize their involvement in the program.
