Recreational ‣ Program Overview

Valor Soccer's Recreational (Rec) program offers safe and affordable soccer fun. The Rec program is 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.

PLAYING CYCLE & SEASONS
The 2019/2020 Playing Cycle is comprised of two Rec seasons - Fall 2019 and Spring 2020. For the 2019/2020 Playing Cycle (

PLAYER GEAR
Players may reuse their Recreational  jersey if they played the Fall 2019 Rec season. If a player does not yet have a jersey, they will order their jersey for Spring 2020 during registration for an additional fee of $25. Parents will also need to ensure their child has soccer cleats, shin guards, and a soccer ball. 

Mark your calendar for the Valor Soccer Cleat Exchange that occurs before that start of each Fall and Spring 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.


PLAYER & TEAM DEVELOPMENT
Valor Soccer's professional Technical Directors create the developmental curriculum that all of our Recreational teams work from.

► U9-U12 teams will participate in weekly academy-style practices and individual team practices with their teammates and coach. 

► U13-U19 teams will participate in weekly individual team practices with their teammates and coach and will be provided with lesson plans detailing training goals and objectives. 


GAMES & LEAGUES
► U9 teams will play in a inter-association league against our own Valor Soccer regional teams (Kent and Maple Valley), Renton, Federal Way, and Enumclaw.

►  U10-U19 teams will participate in the South Sound United League (SSUL) which plays against teams in south King County and Pierce County.
