Recreational Soccer Overview

The Recreation Program is available for players from U6 – U19 and currently has over 800 participants.
The Rec program has a few variations, which you can read about below.

U6

This is for our K and Pre-K players. The program is run ‘in-house’, with no official practices and
just a one hour commitment each week on a Saturday or Sunday.
Games are run by our Volunteer Coaches, with a 20 minute practice, followed by 40 minutes of
3v3/4v4 games in their teams.
This is high energy and lots of fun, giving the youngsters a first taste of soccer!

U7 – U8

Players are divided into rosters of around 12 players, with a Volunteer Coach running one
practice a week during Fall (60 minutes), following the curriculum provided by 24-7 UK Soccer
Academy. Games take place on the weekend and teams are divided into two groups of six to play 4v4 games against other PSC U7-8 teams. There are no scores kept and coaches and parents are encouraged to just ‘let the kids play’ during the games.

All games and practices take place in Piedmont. As part of the program, all players are pre-registered for the Friday night soccer classes, which our run by our experienced Pro Trainers every other week in Fall (total of five x 60 minute sessions). These are also run in Piedmont.

U10 – U12

At U10+ , Piedmont SC Rec teams participate in Jack London Youth Soccer League, which
combines several over Soccer Clubs in the area.

Games take place locally in Oakland, Piedmont and Alameda, with around 10 games played in
a season. Teams have the option to play Fall only, or can select to participate in Fall AND Spring.
Practices are once a week with a Volunteer Coach (60 mins @ U10. 75 Mins @ U12), but
players have the option to sign up for Professional Coach led programs, such as SkillSKOOL,
SAQ; Conditioning and Goalkeeping, which take place in Spring, Summer and Fall.

At U10, teams play 7v7, before progressing to 9v9 at U12. If the team has fulfilled their referee requirement, they have the option to participate in the Jack London tournament, which takes place in November to finish off the season in style!

Our Rec program is run fully by our fantastic volunteer coaches, but with the introduction this
year of PSC’s U9-12 and U13-15 Technical Director, we will see more support for session
planning and curriculum content, so that our players in the Rec program have the opportunity to develop their game in the fun environment created by our parent volunteers.
