Program Overview

The Lacey Soccer Club runs a weekly Instructional / Recreation program for children ages 3 through 10, to play in both Fall and Spring Soccer seasons. Open Registration is available online and during scheduled times prior to each season.  

REC/Instructional:   Our REC program is based on training with professionals to build up skills and teach the game.  The program is designed for inexperienced players and stresses soccer fundamentals, skills and good sportsmanship. As players get older, and grow in skill our, in house program is a step up to a more competitive program in which no standings are kept and the sole purpose is to teach the game.  At the age of 8, children have the option to try out for the Club Travel Team.  Anyone not qualifying for the team or choosing not to tryout will be placed back in the Recreation Program.   

We spend a lot of time and energy in making sure that the rules, guidelines, and participation requirements not only meet United States Youth Soccer Guidelines, but will ensure the proper environment for all participants to be able to develop their skills and improve their decision making ability necessary to compete at the traveling age, and most of all, to ENJOY THE GAME.

We have a lot of programs and resources available to instructional age players and offer training from the finest trainers and companies in the area. It is our desire to facilitate the learning process of every child from four through ten years old to ensure that they have best chance at succeeding not only in soccer, but in every endeavor they take.
