Puma FC Recreational Soccer

puma-cubsThis Puma FC recreational program is designed for kids to help fill a large gap in Kansas youth soccer development. Most kids start their soccer career off by playing recreation soccer with their friends and a parent coach. They are usually practicing soccer and training with parents who have little experience with soccer as a youth and who unintentionally could be showing the incorrect way to learn and play the game but bring great value as a parent and role model for the group of friends.  At Puma FC, we offer a recreational program that is a step above any other programs in the area because it gives the best technical training by professional coaches and still allows kids to plays games with their friends in the recreational environment while parents continue to coach the teams. This gives the best of both worlds, social and development.

This program is created for Pre-K/Kindergarten to 6th grade boys and girls. These teams are selected regardless of the player’s abilities or skills and are instead based on who their friends are or where they go to school. Recreational teams are coached by motivated and “Puma FC Approved” parents who undergo background checks. Puma FC oversees the sessions run by parent coaches  adn help with the creation of these practices. Parents run all the games in whatever rec league they happen to be playing in.
