Sign up now for Waukon Park & Recreation Youth Soccer

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 for foot apparel.

The games will be played Saturday mornings starting April 18 and will run for five weeks as follows: April 18, April 25, May 2, May 9 and May 16. The make-up dates will be Monday, May 18 or Tuesday, May 19, 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 practice with their teammates and then they will play a game for about 30 minutes. They will play on a small field and game formats will be five-on-five players.

First through sixth grades will have two practices during the week plus Saturday morning games. The practice days/times will depend on the coach. Practices will start the week of April 6 if the weather allows. Games/practices will be held at the fields west of the Waukon Wellness Center. Two volunteer coaches are needed for each team.

After March 13, the registration fee increases, so participants are encouraged to register early. Online registration will close March 16. Registration forms can be picked up at the Wellness Center or printed from the Waukon Park and Recreation website or Facebook page. Copies were also handed out at the schools in Waukon. The final registration deadline is March 20.
