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 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 (Age Group Coordinators), coach (head and asst), team manager and other game day roles (Age Group Coordinator, Equipment Manager, etc). As you register your child, please consider a role that would be right for you.

Fall Recreation
Registration opens early June and remains open until mid-August.  Practices start late August and games start after Labor Day and continue every Saturday up until approximately the Saturday of Daylight Savings Time ending.
