Sign up 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 Saturday mornings starting April 17 and will run for five weeks. The dates will be as follows: April 17, April 24, May 1, May 8 and May 15. The make-up dates will be May 17 (Monday), May 18 (Tuesday) or May 22 (Saturday), if needed.
Kindergarteners will not practice during the week. They show up at the designated time Saturdays 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 and the format will be five-on-five games.

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 5, 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 12, the registration fee increases, so participants are encouraged to register early. Online registration will close March 15. Registration forms can be picked up at the Wellness Center, printed off on the Waukon Park and Recreation website or Facebook page. Copies were also handed out at the Waukon schools. The final registration deadline is Friday, March 19.
