LOCOMOTIVE RECREATIONAL SOCCER LEAGUE
Recreational soccer allows all interested boys and girls to play the game regardless of ability. For many, the Locomotive Recreation Program offers the perfect balance between cost and commitment providing years of enjoyment. This program also serves as an entry point for players who find they have a passion for the game of soccer and eventually transition to the Locomotive SC Competitive program. Players register twice per year (typically January & June) Recreational soccer is a great place to start for any child interested in playing the game. For many, it's also the first step in what becomes a life-long connection with the sport.
Any person that registers online and meets the age criteria is accepted regardless of where they live. Locomotive Recreation teams are randomly formed prior to the fall season and generally remain in tact through the spring. Teams are organized into leagues by age group and gender with some adjustments made between the seasons to accommodate players lost and those newly registered participants. New teams may be formed in the spring if necessitated by additional registrations. LRSL does not accept requests for specific teams or coaches unless there is a documented need, such as siblings.
Locomotive Rec teams are coached by parent volunteers who are provided free coaching training and access to multiple coaching resources. Each season is comprised of seven games which are played on weeknights and/or Saturdays. Teams generally practice once per week for one hour beginning roughly 2 weeks prior to the first game.
