It’s that time of year again when the wee ones of all skill levels take the fields to learn and play the beautiful game.
Southern Indiana United’s recreational soccer program registers over 550 children each season, and the focus is on fun as players learn about good sportsmanship and teamwork, while also getting some great exercise.
As many teams as possible are set up based on the number of parent volunteer coaches and field availability. All team members play at least half of every game and there are no cuts or tryouts.
This year, there are 46 teams playing in the U5 to U19 range, but most of the teams are to be found in the U5 to U10 age groups, and they kick about at the Church of the Nazarene fields near Floyd Central High School on Mondays, Thursday and Saturdays until the end of May
