Under 10 – Under 19 (U10-U19)
The PSC Recreational program is the non-competitive division designed for players age, looking to play soccer on a local team that is focused on fun and learning. Players do not attend tryouts and are assigned to teams based on previous team affiliation (if desired) and/or age level. The season lasts from early September to the third weekend of November, with many teams participating in the end of the year “Jack London Referee Appreciation Tournament.”
PSC Recreational teams play in the Jack London Youth Soccer Sports League. These teams can expect to practice once a week, for an hour, in Piedmont and play one game a week on Saturdays (unless they are part of the Sunday Soccer program). Financial commitment outside of registration is minimal and may include additional uniform items (extra socks, shorts, etc.).
Players are grouped in teams with two-year age levels (U10, U12, U14, U16, U19). See the Age Group Chart to locate the age group for your child
PSC offers many coach education opportunities and resources for those volunteering as a head coach of one of our rec teams. For information on these, please go to our Coach Resources Page.
The coach licensing system has changed a bit.
The F License no longer exists and has been replaced by the new Grassroot Modules. The E and F Licenses are still valid to those who have them, but PSC is now asking our parent coaches that haven’t done an E or F License to take BOTH of the following:
Introduction to Grassroots Coaching Course
- This is free and takes about 30 mins to complete.
In Person AND/OR Online Grassroots Module
- for the Age Group being coached (i.e. U10 Coach to take 7v7 Course).
- Online courses are $25 to take (can be reimbursed by club on completion of course)
- In person courses can be found here:
Our Director of Coaching, Dan Chubbock, is licensed to teach the Grassroots Modules. Please send me a note if you would like to attend a PSC hosted Grassroots course and we will follow up with a proposed day and time.
Coaches are also required to attend the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) class, details of which can be found here:
Parents are also strongly encouraged to attend. The PCA instructs coaches and parents on how to effectively teach children in a positive and supportive environment.
There are also programs run by the club open to registered recreational players interested in additional soccer throughout the year. Please view our additional Programs under the main menu.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
