North Alabama SC's recreational soccer program is devoted to the enjoyment and development of youth soccer players within North Alabama communities without an emphasis on travel or competitive play levels. The purpose of recreational soccer is to provide an opportunity for players at ALL levels to have fun, learn the sport, develop life skills, and develop a LOVE for the game.
North Alabama SC is a family-oriented soccer organization that provides an opportunity to play organized soccer at the recreational levels for players at ages 2-14 years old. We offer programs that place the focus on the development of the whole player within a team environment. North Alabama SC is committed to providing holistic player development through a child-centered environment for each individual player while offering players, their families and coaches an enjoyable and FUN soccer experience. We are dedicated to helping players reach their full potential while fostering a love of the game.
NO TRYOUTS - EVERYONE PLAYS!
We offer multiple programs as part of our recreational program to introduce players to the game of soccer:
Little Kickerz: 2-5 year-old mommy/daddy and me soccer
Toddler Time: 2-4 year old parent guided soccer
Jr. Academy: 4-8 year old recreational soccer
Pre-Academy: 7-8 year old recreational soccer
10U-14U: 9-14 year old recreational soccer
Little Kickerz and Toddler Time: Little Kickerz and Toddler Time are co-ed programs that meet once a week. Both programs are offered in Huntsville only. These programs are guided soccer play-dates that allow kids to be introduced to soccer through fun small-sided games. Little Kickerz is a paid 6-week program as it is held indoors with an assigned staff coach. Toddler Time is a free 4-week Saturday only program.
Jr. Academy: Jr. Academy is a co-ed, 8-week program that plays twice a week: one mid-week practice and Saturday game-days. Game-play is 4v4. Program is offered in Huntsville, Madison, and Owens Cross Roads.
Pre-Academy: 7U-8U program that prepares players for entry into the North Alabama SC Compeitive Academy program. This one of a kind program in North Alabama is under the supervision of the Recreation Director and is coached by a professional licensed coach. This program is intended to help transition the kids from the 4v4 game to the 7v7 game at 9/10U.
Players practice 2 times a week and play in-house/local friendly games on either on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday (only one of those days). These players have the opportunity to attend 1-2 local tournaments each season.
10U-14U: 10U-14U is an 8-week program that has two practices a week with game-days on Saturday and Sunday. All games are local and played in the greater Huntsville/Madison County area.
The benefit of the North Alabama SC recreational program is the support of our professional coaching staff. Volunteer parent coaches are supported by our dedicated Recreational Director and staff coaches for practices and games. Recreational players are developed using a modified version of our academy curriculum to ensure they are learning the game and developing the skills needed to meet their soccer goals that may include middle school, high school, or transitioning to competitive soccer.
