This program is created for Pre-K/Kindergarten to 4th-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 and help with the creation of these practices. Parents run all the games in the rec league of their choice. The parent coaches run the sessions but have access to a Puma FC Professional coach/ trainer if they have any questions.
Pre K-4th Grade Fall Season – Boys and girls are on separate teams. For the Fall season, there will be 1-2 team practices (August-October) with the option of an additional “CUBS Skills” practice opportunity for the fall approx 1 time per week. Approximately 9-12 players on a team format will be 7 v 7 with 2 – 25-minute halves and volunteer coaches. There will be eight games. All Practices will be overseen by Puma FC Coaches and Trainers. There are opportunities to guest play on Puma FC Premier Teams for kids U8-U10.
