Blitzz FC Rec Soccer is our recreational soccer program for players that were born between 2012-1998. The youngers phase is for birth years 2012-2010. The olders phase is for birth years 2007-1998. (for info on 2008 and 2009 birth years see the “Micro Academy tab”). Blitzz FC Rec Soccer – Youngers follows methods designed by US Soccer that are shown to help young kids learn the game of soccer as well as help them develop as individuals through small-sided games. Some benefits to small-sided games are: • More ball touches creates more opportunities for learning and skill development • Games and practice help develop confidence, creativity, problem-solving, and soccer skills • More involvement in the play means more fun! We will be offering 3 Blitzz Pro Session days again this spring, where kids are welcome to come get a taste of professional coaching from licensed Blitzz coaches and play some soccer.
Registration is done by birth year (if registration numbers allow we will do single birth year teams, but there may be instances where we have to combine 2 birth years to form adequate roster sizes). US Soccer has mandated registration change from school grade to birth year by fall 2017. Blitzz FC decided in fall of 2016 to move all players into birth year groups. Please review the attached link for more information.
