Register now for Waukon Park & Recreation Youth Soccer Program

The Waukon Park & Recreation Youth Soccer Program is for boys and girls in Kindergarten through sixth grade. Basic fundamentals of soccer will be taught along with team participation.

Teams will be grouped together as follows: Kindergarten is alone, first and second graders will be together, third and fourth graders will be together, and fifth and sixth graders will be together. Different size fields and balls will be used to accommodate the lower ages and skill levels. All players must wear shin guards and they must be covered by socks or pants. Cleats are optional.

The games will be played Saturday mornings starting April 13 and will run for five weeks. There will not be games April 20 due to Easter weekend. The dates will be as follows: April 13, April 27, May 4, May 11 and May 18. The make-up date will be Tuesday, May 21, if needed.

Kindergarteners will not practice during the week. They show up at the designated time each Saturday and will be shown different soccer drills that they will do with their teammates and then they will play a game for about 30 minutes. They will play on a small field in a five-on-five game format.

First through sixth grade will have two practices during the week plus Saturday morning games. The practice days/times will depend on each team’s coach. Practices will start the week of April 1. Games/practices will be held at the fields west of the Waukon Wellness Center. Two volunteer coaches are needed for each team.

After March 15, the registration fee increases, so register early. Online registration will close March 18. Registration forms can be picked up at the Waukon Wellness Center, printed off from the Waukon Park and Rec website or Facebook page, and copies were also handed out at the Waukon schools. The final registration deadline is March 21. For more information contact Kim Kraus at 563-568-6420.
