Overview. The U8-U14 Recreational Program provides a low-cost option for kids to play soccer on a community-based team with their peers. Game scores are not recorded, no league standings are kept, and every child is guaranteed to play at least 50% of each game. Teams generally have kids with a wide range of skills -- it is not uncommon for teams to include players who are playing soccer for the first time, as well as players who also play on competitive "select" teams.
Team Formation. Teams are formed according to rules that CCNSC has adopted that comply with KYSA guidelines. To group kids by geographic locations, CCNC has adopted sub-groups that align with local elementary and middle schools. More information on registration and team formation can be found on the Registrar's Page.
Games. Games for U8, U10 and U12 are all played "in-house" between CCNSC teams. Games are generally played on Saturdays at the CCNSC fields on Williams Lane off Route 8 in Melbourne, KY either at the Fort Thomas Soccer Park (FTSP) or Pendery Park (PP) fields. Make-up games are generally played during weeknights at these same fields.
Games for U14 are played with other local recreational soccer Clubs. Home games will be played at the FTSP and PP fields. Away games are generaly played at fields in northern Kentucky with 30 to 40 minutes. Additional information is available on game Schedules and Game Fields.
Standings. We do not keep standings or records for the U8-U14 recreational programs.
Practices. Practices are held either once or twice a week at local fields that CCNSC has obtained permission to use from the municipality or school district.
Note: It is very important that we follow the rules for using our practice and game fields so that we can continue to use this fields in the future. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
