In-House Recreational Program Information

                The In-House Recreational program includes 9 weeknight practices at Hotchkiss Field in the town of Prospect and 8 Saturday morning games in Prospect and Beacon Falls.*  The program starts at U4 with MiniKickers, continues with U6 (Under 6) coed, followed by U7 and above being non-coed. Games are played on Saturday mornings against teams within each team's own division. Scores and standings are not kept and every player is guaranteed to play at least 50% of each game (except in the event of injury or discipline).

                The registration fee includes a shirt, professional training time every week, an end of the season party, and a weekly curriculum for parent coaches to follow. Coaches are always in need. There is no soccer experience necessary, just a willingness to work with children and to learn.

*Games alternate between Pent Rd Field in Beacon Falls and Hotchkiss Field in Prospect during the Fall season.
