Elks Soccer: REC SOCCER INFO
The Elks rec program went to a 3 v 3 format for our U5 and U6 age groups which is in line with the US Soccer Small Sided Standards. This change came last year and we felt it was in the best interest of our program to help the players in those age groups develop both a love for the game and maximize their touches on the ball which supports growth as a player.
The Elks board understands that this is a difficult concept for parents to grasp because this, 'isn't the way I played when I was a kid'. As a board we made the decision to become more aligned with US soccer standards, since they are the experts in player development.
