The Recreation Program is designed for beginners and youths interested in playing soccer in a less competitive environment. Basic soccer skills are taught and reinforced.
PRACTICE SCHEDULE BY FIELDPractices will be held at the park that you selected during your registration - Rock Creek Park, Yahoola creek Park, Roper Park, Fannin County Park, Elan Soccer Park or Gilmer County Soccer Complex. Turf or rubber-soled shoes are required for practices, in order to preserve the fields for games. Cleats may be used for games.
Due to field availability, if a practice is rained out during the week there will be no make up practice scheduled. The rainout line is 844-468-6832 x720. This will be updated by 3:30 PM on inclement weather days. Another option is to check the website at mountains.unitedfa.org, and look for Field Status in the lower right corner of middle of the page.
Throughout the season parent volunteers will be in great demand. We will need coaches, assistant coaches, and team managers for each team. If you are interested in volunteering for any of these positions, please let us know via email as soon as possible or by registering as a volunteer when you register your child.
Directions to register as a volunteer Coach, Assistant Coach, or Team Manager can be found here.
All special requests regarding either playing on a specific team, or playing on the same team as another player will be considered but are not guaranteed. All special requests must be received by January 20th for the spring season and July 20th for the Fall season in order to be considered.
Any player wishing to play up to the next age group must first be approved by the Recreational Director.
All practices and Home games will be held at at the park that you selected during your registration - Rock Creek Park, Yahoola creek Park, Roper Park, Fannin County Park, Elan Soccer Park or Gilmer County Soccer Complex.
Most U5 & U6 games will be played at your practice park location (an occasional game may be scheduled at the other park). U8 - U12 games will be played at Rock Creek Sports Complex, Yahoola Creek Park, Roper Park, Fannin County Park, Elan Soccer Park or Gilmer County Soccer Complex (with potential for an occassional game at Matt Community Park). U14 & Up will play home games at your practice park location. Please note, the U14, U16 and U19 age groups are Inter-league between neighboring clubs, so please anticipate some traveling on the weekends for some games.
Our recreational uniforms are intended to be used for one seasonal year. Our seasonal year runs from fall to spring and each player receives one uniform per seasonal year. I.E. - If you participated in the fall season, you will not receive a new uniform for the spring season. Prior to the fall season each year, the recreational uniforms will be evaluated and the vendor and/or style will change. Once the uniform is chosen, we will make a one year commitment to that particular uniform. Due to the rapid growth of our club as well as time constraints, we will not be offering exact sizing. Each team will receive the recommended sizes for their age group. Upon receipt, the team manager and/or coach will distribute among the players according to size.
Mini League U4
The Mini League is a FUN introductory program designed for boys and girls whose birth year is 2019. This is a success-based program designed to develop a player’s confidence and a life-long love of the game of soccer. The Mini League program is run as a parent/child clinic format. We will have a Professional Trainer assisted by the parent/s of each player. We will work on soccer skills each week through a variety of games and activities. There are no set teams. The 6-week long season takes place on Friday evenings, typically 5:30-6:15pm. The participation fee per season is $70 which includes a t-shirt and ball per seasonal year (both fall and spring seasons = one seasonal year). I.E. - If you participated in the fall Mini League, you will not receive a new ball and t-shirt. Players may wear sneakers.
