Fees
The cost for the fall rec season is $95 for Pre-K & K, $75 for World Cup series or $120 for Grade 1/2 and U12.

Pre-K and K Players
Children will be split into mini groups with same age peers. Sessions will be led by parent coaches with Kickz UK trainers assisting. The sessions will be a mix of fun games and activities to build foundational skills. Most weeks will end with a short "scrimmage" giving everyone a chance to shoot and score! This age uses a Size 3 Soccer Ball.

Grade 1 and 2 Players
At this age players will be split into 4-6 teams (depending on player count) and will play 4-vs-4 games (no goalie) on Saturday mornings against each other in a rotating schedule. Teams will be led by parent coaches with an assigned Kickz UK trainer providing support. The games are fun and fast paced and begin to teach the players the 'rules' of soccer (out-of-bounds, throw-ins, penalty kicks, etc). There is also an hour long weekly skills training session included, run by the team's Kickz UK trainer, held on a weeknight (For Fall 2018, Thursdays). This age uses a Size 3 Soccer Ball.

Grades 3 through 8 Players
We have enough players to field a U12 team in the SCYSL (Sussex County Youth Soccer League.) The league is coed and teams are grouped by age range:

U12 - 9v9 - 2007/2008 birth year

SCYSL games are held on Saturdays at various times and locations throughout Sussex County. Our Home fields is Mohawk Ridge (9v9). During the week there is both a Kicks UK trainer and a coach practice at CO Johnson (typically Monday and Thursday, 6:30-8, but final schedule TBD.)

LVSC World Cup
For players born in 2010 or older, every Saturday from 11-12 Coach Natalie will be running a month long World Cup series. Players will have a professional 15 minute warm up then four 10 minute games.

The World Cup will be 4 weeks long meaning, players will be playing 16 games over the month. This means a lot of playing time for every player and a chance to improve their skills and develop as players. Natalie will be keeping track of team points and at the end of the World Cup there will be a prize for the winning team.

- points will be given not only for winning games, also for team work, wearing team colours etc. For example, if a team decide to be ENGLAND and players as a team wear red and white there will be points awarded onto their team scoreboard.

The schedule for the final 4 weeks of the 11-12 time slot will be announced in the coming weeks.

All Rec players should have shinguards. Shorts are not mandated under Grade 3 (once it gets into October it can get a little chilly). Sweatpants are OK. Cleats are not mandatory for the Pre-K/K children but they are recommended. Grades 1 and up should have cleats.

Most sporting goods stores (Dick's, Modell's, etc) will run specials through the start of the season where you can get a soccer ball, cleats and shinguards for a bundle price (usually under $25). See above for soccer ball size for your child.

Reversible Jerseys / T-Shirts
Pre-K / K players will wear a LVSC Rec T-Shirt. If your child has one from a previous year, they can use the same one. If you need a new t-shirt, they are available for a cost of $12. There is an option to choose your size on the registration form. Sizes Youth XS-S-M-L.

Grade 1 and up players will wear a Red LVSC Rec Jersey with number on back. If your child has a tee-shirt or jersey from a previous year (or hand-me-down from a sibling), they can use that.
