The Recreational Path offers safe and affordable soccer fun. This program starts at the Under 9 age group (AGE GROUP CHART) and offers teams through the Under 19 age group. The U9 to U19 age group includes birth years 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 20011.
The Recreational Path provides an excellent opportunity for players who want to enjoy the beautiful game with their friends without the time investment, effort, and commitment required by the Competitive Path programs - Premier and Select.
Leagues are offered each Fall and Spring. Players can register to be placed on a team or with a group of friends. There are no tryouts for Recreational soccer, and until rosters are full, registration takes place on a first-come, first-served basis.
Registration is officially closed for the Fall 2019 season of FirstKick.
We hope to see you for Spring 2020!
FirstKick & Rec Operations
Our professional Valor Coaching Staff creates the developmental curriculum that all our Recreational teams work from.
U9 to U12 teams have weekly training sessions at their regional training sites.
U13 and up teams will be provided lesson plans each week from our Program Director. The Program Director will be rotating between teams and join them during their training sessions.
Teams will be provided several locations to use for practice during the week. Specific practice times and locations are determined by each coach. See some of the available practice locations below:
Each player is required to purchase a Nike Recreational Path Valor Soccer jersey. This jersey is not included in the registration fee.
Parents will need to ensure their child has soccer cleats, shin guards, and a soccer ball. Optional matching shorts, socks, and additional training gear will be available through the Valor Soccer Team Store.
Mark your calendar for the Valor Soccer Cleat Exchange that occurs before that start of each Fall and Spring Recreational season. Whether you need new cleats or are looking to donate an old pair, the Cleat Exchange is a great opportunity for everyone! Details to come.
There are several options to be placed on a Recreational team. These requests will be made through the online registration process.
*Special requests will only be accommodated for players that are registered by the deadline.
