What is Recreational Soccer?


Recreational Soccer is a program that is primarily devoted to the enjoyment and development of youth soccer players with out the emphasis on traveling or high level competition. 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 approved parents who undergo background checks.

Puma FC is committed to providing the best tactical and overall athletic development for each individual player while offering players, their families and coaches an enjoyable soccer experience. We are dedicated to helping players reach their full potential while fostering a love of the game.

Programs will run on Saturday or Sunday at Heritage Soccer Park through 4th grade and both Heritage and Stump Parks for 5th-8th grade in fall and spring. Additional indoor programming will also be offered over the winter months.

The league's philosophy is to enrich the youth of our community through the game of soccer while enhancing the social skills and team play in a fun and exciting environment. We want to lower the boundaries and engage with as many young players as possible.

This program will truly put the player first. We have created a developmentally appropriate environment which helps foster a player's love for the game and put that above anything else.
