Soccer is a great choice for youth sports for many reasons. Because there is very little equipment needed, your investment as a parent isn't a barrier to entry. But more importantly, it's a game with simple rules that children can grasp from an early age.
Our YMCA soccer program is a developmental league that meets the athlete where he or she is and builds their skills from there. Whether their first season is at age 3 or age12, YMCA coaches will help them get in the game and enjoy their experience.
Playing organized sports is one of The Search Institute's "Developmental Assets," which are predictors for developing into a well-adjusted teen and adult.
The YMCA of Greenville has two soccer seasons per year.
