Register now for Waukon Park & Rec Youth Soccer Program

The Waukon Park & Recreation Youth Soccer Program is for boys and girls in Kindergarten through sixth grade. Basic fundamentals of soccer will be taught along with team participation. Teams will be grouped together as follows: Kindergarten is alone, first and second graders will be together, third and fourth graders will be together, and fifth and sixth graders will be together.

Different size fields and balls will be used to accommodate the lower ages and skill levels. All players must wear shin guards and they must be covered by socks or pants. Cleats are optional.

The games will be played Saturday mornings starting April 23 and will run for five weeks. The dates will be as follows: April 23, April 30, May 7, May 14 and May 21. The make-up dates will be May 16 (Monday), May 17 (Tuesday), or May 19 (Thursday), if needed.

Kindergarteners will not practice during the week. They show up at the designated time each Saturday and will be shown different soccer drills that they will do with their teammates, and then they will play a game for about 30 minutes. They will play on a small field and the team format will be 5-on-5 games.

First through sixth grades will have two practices during the week plus Saturday morning games. The practice days/times will depend on the coach. Practices will start the week of April 11, if the weather allows. Games/practices will be held at the fields west of the Waukon Wellness Center. Two volunteer coaches are needed for each team.

After March 18, the registration fee increases, so register early. Online registration will close March 22. Registration forms can be picked up at the Waukon Wellness Center, or printed from the Waukon Park and Recreation website or the Facebook page. Copies were also handed out at the Waukon schools.

The final registration deadline is Friday, March 25.
