SVU Recreation Program Overview

The SVU Recreation programs are offered in the Fall and Spring and provides the opportunity for boys and girls to develop basic soccer skills and teamwork in a stress-free and fun environment.  SVU is a long-time advocate of small-sided games, which promote player development across all age groups.

The Recreation program season consists of one (1) practice session during the week and one (1) game on Saturday (7 games guaranteed) over eight (8) weeks each in both the Fall and the Spring.  Practices are held in the city and each of the high school district areas of the county.  Players have the choice to be on a team in any high school district as it does not need to be the same area of residence.  All games are played at Horizons Edge Sports Complex, in Harrisonburg.

The Recreation program is coordinated by SVU staff, but relies heavily on volunteers to keep costs down for all. Volunteers are needed to oversee age divisions and prepare schedules, coach (head and assistant), support parent and other game day roles. As you register your child, please consider a role that would be right for you.

Spring 2022 Recreation
Registration opens early October and remains open until mid-March. Practices and games start mid April and games will continue every Saturday up until approximately the first weekend in June . 

Refund Policy:
Request for a refund and to withdraw from the Rec program must be made through an e-mail or written notice prior to the first game of the season.  Refunds will be issued minus a $20.00 processing fee, only if requested ahead of first game.  Refunds will be  sent in the form of a check and will take about 3 weeks to be processed.
