Spring Intramural Soccer - Waiting for the Right Time

UpdatedSaturday April 25, 2020 byDF.

WRA IM Soccer is excited (but patiently waiting) to provide another great season of Spring Soccer starting when we believe it's safe to play.

Check out the videos from SmartSoccer to keep your players in top form: Click here!

This program is conducted in partnership with our longtime soccer training partner Smart Soccer. Trainers from Smart Soccer will coordinate skill activities and games; there are opportunities for volunteers to assist.  If you are interested in volunteering you will need to attend the Pre Season Meeting before play begins. More details will be sent to registered volunteers. Please note that volunteering requires compliance with state law regarding completion of background clearances (see the tab on our home page).

The 7-week season was originally opening the week of April 6  and ending the last week of May, with the first week of June used for reschedules.

We hope to offer some version of the Spring season; we are currently waiting to get an indication from state and local authorities, as well as guidance from EPYSA, that it is relatively safe for players to return to action. We will take recommended actions to minimize risk for all involved: players, trainers and volunteers, and parents/guardians on the sidelines.  

  • Click the LOGIN button in the upper right corner to get started with registration.

Each grade is typically assigned a one-hour time slot, although we reserve the right to adjust the schedule based on final registration numbers. We do not assign teams; the focus is on skills development and small sided games; players are sorted differently each week. 

The tentative schedule for Spring 2020 is as follows, but keep in mind that it may change as needed to optimize field use, and trainer time:

  • Mondays 
    • 5:45 PM - Preschool (3 yr olds, as of Sept1 2019) - Note: parent participation required
    • 5:45 PM - 3rd & 4th Grade Boys
    • 6:45 PM - 5th & 6th Grade Girls
    • 6:45 PM - 5th & 6th Grade Boys
  • Tuesdays 
    • 5:45 PM - PreK (4 yr olds) - co-ed
    • 6:45 PM - Kindergarten - co-ed
  • Wednesdays 
  • VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED AT EVERY LEVEL. You're especially important to help the trainers run drills and games (no experience required!), but also to help with day-to-day field setup/takedown. Volunteer registration and background checks are required, so please get an early start on that. 

Finally, the Middle School Coed pickup games will be offered once more. These are usually played on Saturday mornings and include some warmup time before attending players are divided up for a fun, friendly game.

Location

2019 WRA spring soccer program takes place at Shady Grove Elementary School.

 

Each week is a combination of fun skill development activities and small sided games. Random teams are created each week to help ensure the teams are evenly balanced, which is more FUN for the kids.

Players should wear their own shorts and socks (black preferred) a T-shirt is provided. Players should also bring a ball and drink to every session, and wear cleats and shin-guards.
