First Touch and Recreational In-House

First Touch and Recreational In-House are for boys and girls ages 3 years to 8 years old. Teams play each other in an in-house league. See below for specific age information. All Programs are available in the Fall and Spring.

FirstTouch 4U (4 and under)

The objective of First Touch is to replicate the back garden environment in which most young players are introduced to soccer by helping to educate parents on activities that can be used in this situation. These specific physical play programs for children from 3-4 years old are aimed at giving children their very first start with the ball. 5-year-olds not quite ready for Recreational In-House are also able to register.

How Does It Work?

The sessions involve both the parent and their child participating within the practice. The head coach oversees the practice, demonstrating the activities. The activities are based on a philosophy that utilizes the child’s imagination to create a positive, exciting, and fun soccer environment. As a result of this soccer philosophy, we create a fun, yet highly active, pressure-free practice.

Coaching Methodology

First Touch uses soccer to develop not only coordination skills but emphasizes socialization. The program is about a great deal more than just developing a child's affinity and control with the ball, it is about giving them a well-rounded start in their physical, social and educational development and developing the 'whole child'.

Benefits include: balance and coordination improvement, increased self confidence and improved social skills.

Recreational In-House 5U to 8U (5 and under/8 and under)

Recreational In-House is designed to offer an alternative to the traditional recreational program in that it provides a development pathway to the next levels of Junior Division 9U-14U & Senior Division 15U-19U.

We provide a progressive weekly age-appropriate curriculum that focuses on ball mastery, 1v1 situations, passing, shooting/striking, defending, and overall individual player development. This can be differentiated from a traditional recreational program where the focus is to develop a team rather than develop the player.

Professional Club Trainers are available at every session to help and oversee Parent Coaches to deliver the weekly lesson plan.

Recreational BYSL Program 9U to 19U

The Recreational Program is for both boys & girls 9U to 19U who want to continue to improve their skills and play the game of soccer.

Teams play within the Brevard Youth Soccer League (BYSL).

The recreational program continues the tradition of the In-House style training with emphasis placed on continuing skill development. Kids who play other sports will have the option to play in either the fall and/or spring season. Teams are based on age.
