The Madison Soccer Club Recreation Program is open to children from Pre-k through 8th grade who live in Madison, Harding and bordering towns. The Recreation Program is a robust and thriving program that boasts over 500 players across boys and girls teams. This is a perfect option for players who do not wish to make the commitment necessary for participation in the travel program, or who are still developing the skills necessary to compete at higher levels. Our Recreation Program was developed in partnership with our training staff in accordance with the guidelines set forth by US Soccer. The long-term development of players is key to the success of the national game, and we recognize that this will require hours of commitment and no shortcuts at any level. The focus of our Recreation Program is on individual player development, emphasizing skills and techniques, through a high number of touches on the ball. Our aim is to foster ability and confidence when in possession of the ball and to give children every opportunity to develop and embrace the game of soccer.
Our Recreation Program runs from the last week in August through October (possibly early November, due to weather cancellations) and entails a weekly practice session with a team-dedicated NYRB trainer along with a weekly match on Saturdays. Finalized schedules are expected by mid-August.
Our program relies on the help and support of parent coaches. With over 500 children in last year’s program, participation continues to increase. We will have 40 teams which will require at least 40 parent coaches! Your support allows us to run the best recreation program available.
Requirements for parent coaches are as follows:
- Send out TeamSnap updates
- Send out TeamSnap game day reminders
- Distribute uniforms to your team
- Support the Red Bulls Head Coach and organize your team on game day
- Attend all games
Parent coaches are NOT required to attend weekly practices but are encouraged to do so. Multiple parent coaches are encouraged to support each team. Parent coaches will have their child automatically placed on their team. If you are interested in helping with this year's program please check coaching interest box in registration form.
Our program also relies on the help and dedication of our youth referees who are all students in our community. Any 8th - 12th grader interested in being a referee should email recreation-coordinator@
