4 - U10-12 Coed (Rec): Welcome
The 2013 Spring season begins on Saturday, April 13th.
For the 2013-14 year, the ALSO Co-Ed Rec program will field four teams consisting of U10 through U12 players (DOB 8/1/00-7/31/03). Each U10-U12 Coed Rec team consists of approximately 14 players. Games are 8v8 (7 field players plus a goalie for each team). Games consist of 2 halves that are generally 25-30 minutes long. Teams practice once per week with games on Saturdays. Team practice date/time is set by the coach and is usually on a weekday evening. All games are at Learwood Middle School. Rosters are primarily carried over from the fall season with the possibility of new players added for the spring season only. Please know that we are unable to accommodate all of the special requests for specific coaches/teams when forming and balancing the rosters.
We have enjoyed cross-town "friendly" matches against other communities like Avon and North Ridgeville in the past and we are hoping to be able to continue to offer this experience for the kids.
Our Basic philosophy for the Coed U10-U12 Recreation soccer program is:
* Developing the mind, body, and self-esteem through sportsmanship, education, skill, teamwork, exercise and enjoyment. Encourage the development of a positive team attitude through cooperative team play.
* The attitude and practice of winning at any cost is not acceptable.
* A commitment to benefit the majority of Avon Lake youth, not only the talented few. Thus our programs shall stress maximum participation from all athletes, regardless of ability.
* Our programs shall be designed to provide evenly balanced competition. Ensure minimal pressure on youth players from coaches, spectators and parents and encourage youth to simply do their best.
