Recreation teams focus on enjoyment of the game and skill development in a non-results oriented environment.

Recreation players are placed on teams based on grade level. There are four levels: 

  • Kindergarten
  • 1st & 2nd grade
  • 3rd & 4th grade
  • 5th & 6th grade

Recreation practices for grades 1-6 will start in mid-August. Games will continue through mid-October. Typically, Kindergarten and 1st & 2nd grade teams play Saturday mornings at Bunganut Sports Complex in Lyman. 3rd & 4th grade teams play Saturday afternoons at Bunganut Sports Complex in Lyman. 5th & 6th grade teams play Saturday afternoons at Bunganut.

All players should have sneakers or cleats, water and shin pads. Please, no soccer cleats only. Other cleats will not be allowed for safety reasons. Mouth guards are not mandatory but are encouraged starting in grade 5/6. Players are encouraged to have their own soccer ball but it is not necessary. Each coach has a few extras with them.
