Recreational Program Information


The Recreation Soccer Program sponsored by Mariner Youth Soccer is for children, boys and girls, Pre K – 8th grade and is an ideal and vibrant entry point for players to be introduced to the sport, play with friends, and participate on a team. Rec soccer is open to all players and is primarily devoted to the enjoyment and development of the beautiful game. No tryouts are required to join a team. 

Rec Soccer is an "in town" league where all games are played against other MYS rec soccer teams of similar grades. Our philosophy is to provide a positive environment for the development and enjoyment of soccer for our area youth to have fun and learn about the fundamentals in a non-threatening environment.

The goal of MYS’s Recreation Soccer League is to give each player the opportunity to develop a solid foundation of soccer skills while playing in a fun environment. In the Fall and Spring seasons children are placed on teams by age group.


Does it matter that my child has never played soccer before?
Absolutely not! Our program is designed so that a player of any skill level can join and have fun.

What is the general commitment? Do we have practices during the week?
Fall Program
Pre-K and K programs hold sessions once a week on Saturdays. The 1st - 8th grade teams hold one practice on a weeknight evening, plus Saturday games.

Who are the coaches?
In the fall program, Coaches for the Pre K and K program are professional coaches.  Coaches for the 1st - 8th grade teams are volunteers, often a parent of a participating player.  During our spring program, (Pre K - 2nd grade ONLY) all coaches are professional coaches. 

What equipment is needed for each player?
Each player should come to practice and games prepared to play. Shin guards are mandatory for all players. They should also bring a ball, appropriate shoes (soccer cleats or turf shoes, or normal athletic shoes), a water bottle and dress for the weather. No jewelry may be worn – this includes earrings.

Ball size:
Pre K – K- size 3
1st- 6th grade - size 4

Where do we purchase our child’s uniform?
Rec uniforms are included in the registration fee and are distributed by your team’s coach.
