Intramural Program (U8-U14)

The Intramural Program is dedicated to the enjoyment and development of your soccer players. The primary focus is to provide an opportunity for the participants to have fun, learn the sport, and develop life skills, as well as to instill a life-long love of the game. The club stresses a positive atmosphere of good sportsmanship and allows players to learn teamwork and gain respect for all involved. Competition is a natural part of the sport, but it is not the primary objective of the Intramural Program.
