Soccer Program Descriptions

The “R” in WNMRC stands for Rec (Recreation) so our soccer programs do not require tryouts – anyone can join the team. At all of the age levels there will be a mix of kids that have never played, those that have only limited experience with the game and those that have been playing several seasons. The emphasis is on fun, developing good sportsmanship, learning the ins & outs of the game and fostering an appreciation for the game of soccer.Soccer contributes to the well-being of children by engaging them in the sport while teaching them basic movements. At this introductory level, the objective is to get moving and to keep active.

Juniors Soccer Clinics consists of instructional play. What this means is that these players do not travel to play against other teams nor do other teams come to them. At this level, the main focus is to have an environment for learning proper fundamental movement skills such as running, jumping, twisting, kicking, throwing and catching and most of all, to.have fun. Once they have developed some, there will be short scrimmages. Skills emphasized will include:

  • Physical – Provide the environment for learning proper fundamental movement skills such as running, jumping, twisting, kicking, throwing and trapping.
  • Technical – The player and the ball: Running with the ball, dribbling, controlling, kicking and shooting.
  • Tactical – None.
  • Mental – Fun, fascination, and passion for play.

7U Soccer continues to build on to the basics as listed above with the addition of 4v4 games played on Saturdays always at TJ Middle School. 

9U & 11U Soccer involves playing against other teams both here in Woodsboro and at other fields in the area. We play short sided soccer at the U9 & U11 levels. This means the games are played on a smaller field and the number of players per team for 9U is 7 players and 11U is 9 players. This is to allow as much playing time as possible. This is recreational soccer so even the least experienced players will get their share of playing time. All of the games are scheduled by and are with other FCYSL teams.

13U & 15U Soccer is played against other teams both here in Woodsboro and at other fields in the area. It is played on a full sized field with 11 vs 11 players. This is recreational soccer so even the least experienced players will get their share of playing time. All of the games are scheduled by and are with other FCYSL teams.
