Shenandoah Valley United

Recreation Program (U5 to U19)

SVU Recreation provides the opportunity for boys and girls to develop basic soccer skills and teamwork in a stress-free and fun environment. This begins with the youngest players. Our creative curriculum emphasizes Soccer Skills, as well as Life Skills which go beyond the game. SVU fully embraces the value of small-sided match formats which promote player development in the younger age groups. These formats provide for developmentally appropriate progressions for skill development and tactical concepts. We support US Youth Soccer recommendations for small-sided play. Our coaches and staff are motivated by a desire to see kids experience the game of soccer and enjoy the rewards of participation.

All teams will have one (1) 60-minute practice per week and one match per week.  Registration fees differ between age groups, but all players purchase the same uniform at an additional $35.

Each Player will need...

  • Shin Guards
  • Soccer Ball (appropriate size)
  • Water Bottle
  • Soccer Attire / Uniform on Game Day
  • Outdoor Grass or Turf Sessions - Cleats
  • Indoor Court Sessions - Indoor Soccer Shoes, or Sneakers 
  • Match Day Uniform (White Jersey for Home Team / Blue Jersey for Away Team)
