Life Skills Soccer League

Purpose of the Program: The purpose of the Life Skills Soccer Program is to offer a high quality and affordable soccer program while using soccer as a tool for teaching important life skills that enable children to be successful in school, sports and life. All students participating in the program will receive a Life Skills Players Workbook. 

Positive Character Strengths: One unique aspect of the program is the involvement of soldiers from Charlie Company at Ft. Lee. Each Saturday, a group of soldiers will assist with setting up the soccer goals and fields and will help coach teams. The soldiers embody the positive character strengths that we teach in the program such as respect, responsibility, cooperation, focus, effort, determination, and self-control.

Practice/Game Times: Practices will be conducted by a licensed coach with Chesterfield United Football Club for eight weeks beginning September 21st on Mondays and Wednesdays after school until 5:15. Games will be played on Saturdays in a recreational soccer league vs. seven other local elementary schools. Games are the following times each week:

K-1 10:00
2-3 11:00
4-5 12:00
