What you might like to know about our Recreational Program

Our Recreational Program hosts kids from pre kindergarden up to 4th grade. We offer this program in both spring and fall seasons.

Instructional in nature : Players are introduced to basic individual and team skills through games and fun exercises. The matches are small sided to allow players more touches on the ball
  • Goal : Introduce as many children as possible to the game of soccer.
  • Main Objective : Children learn how to play a team sport while having fun in a safe environment.
  • Matches / Teams : Teams are single gender and every player is given equal playing time. If your player is registered for Mini Kickers and you would prefer a co-ed team, please let us know. Team numbers are purposely limited to allow each player to play all the time. Scores and standings are not recorded. Matches among older players may become competitive - the competition is always secondary to the instructional and recreational aims of the program.
  • Parents : We encourage parents to participate as coaches under the guidance of licensed instructors and to support good sportsmanship on and off the field at all times.

Practices & Games : All practices & games are held at the West Tisbury School back fields.
