The Recreactional/Development Program is where all players under the age of 8 start. It runs from ages 3 through 10. It is our only co-ed program, and the focus of the program is on having fun, being active, and learning soccer skills. Players have two practices each week and a game on Saturday each weekend.
The Rec/Development program is broken into four age groups covering the age and skill levels needed to prepare players best in progression. These are: Under-4 Minis, U5/U6-Clinic, U7/U8-Juniors and U9/U10-Seniors.
Registration is online and is open from mid-November through mid-March for Spring seasons and from June through mid-August for Fall seasons. We will accept players as long as we have room to place them.
Our standard pricing is $105 per season and includes a uniform you keep. A discount of $10 is automatically given during the early registration period.
Practices begin after the "Back To Soccer" organizational meeting that starts each season. Practices are typically on M/W or T/Th and are determined by each team. Typically, practices are 60 to 90 minutes depending on the age of the players and generally start at 5:30 or 6pm.
Games are played on Saturdays at the ASA Rec fields located between Arundel High School/Middle School off Hammond Lane in Gambrills, MD. Game start times are between 8:30am-1pm each Saturday. The game day schedule is generally posted on the ASA website two weeks before the first game of each season.
