Amelia Island Youth Soccer

Recreation Soccer

Recreational programs are typically the first exposure for children to the game of soccer.  At Amelia Island Youth Soccer Club (AIYS), we look to instill a love of the game for each and every player we have in our program.  Our Recreation Program is targeted towards children from the Under 5 (U5) group all the way through the Under 19 (U19) age group.  Any child of any ability level is welcome to play.  The Recreational Program is open to all applicants, regardless of ability (dependent only on facility space and coach availability). All teams will have between 8-10 games per season and practice once a week.


Seasons
The Recreational Program has two seasons per year:
Fall (August – November) Registration opens late May and closes 1 August.
Spring (February – May) Registration opens November and closes 1 February.


Refunds
Refunds requested before registration close - No administration fee
Refund requested after registration deadline and before season start - $25 administration fee
Refunds requested after season start date - no refund

Team Assignments U6, U8, U10, U12, U14, U16 & U19 

Team assignment is based on a single season.  Teams are formed using age and gender to build teams equally.  Coaches in all age groups are volunteers; please be sure to indicate on your child’s form if you are willing to volunteer to coach.  No attempt will be made to insure returning players stay on same team.  AIYS attempts to honor as many requests as possible but absolutely no guarantees can be made.


See updated schedule and COVID -19 requirements for Schedule and practice days.

Playing Time
Youth recreational soccer focuses on the development of the player.  It is an opportunity for each child to learn individual skills and teamwork skills.  Youth recreational soccer is not focused on winning or losing; it is about each child playing to the best of his or her ability while having fun.  It is about rewarding effort. Therefore, regardless of ability, each recreational player is guaranteed playing time during one half of each game. It is the coach’s responsibility to ensure that every child plays an appropriate amount of time.
