STING AUSTIN RECREATION

STING AUSTIN RECREATION PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

Having FUN, learning by PLAYING, and building character through SOCCER are what you can expect when you sign up your player for the Sting Austin Recreational program.

Our coaches create safe, challenging, inclusive soccer environments where players can experience the game, grow as individual players, learn sportsmanship and respect, and become a good teammate.

Through their recreational soccer experience, many players build the foundational skills and confidence to help them transition to more competitive Academy and Select soccer programs.

Critical to player success in our Recreational program is the support of the parent and volunteer coaching community.

Our Volunteer coaches are respected and community-focused in their contribution; and have great impact on the lives of the athletes within our program. They are provided curriculum guidance, coaching resources and access to coaching clinics by the Sting Austin Youth Development Director. 

Sting Austin strive to create a growing love for the game while providing a philosophy that supports the advancement of all levels and every player within the Recreational program. To register your player for Sting Austin recreational soccer, click here. 

2021-2022 SEASON:

Please note, when determining the age group for a season, the year the season ends should be used for determining the birth year. Also note that the format “U followed by age” means that age and younger. For example, U8 should be read as 8 and younger.

Players born 2012 (u10) – 2017 (U5) are eligible to play Academy soccer instead of recreational soccer. For players who want to develop increased skills, play more competitive and have interest in preparing for the transition to select soccer, the Academy program would be a good environment for them. To learn more about the Academy program click here.

RECREATION PARENTS:

Sting Austin clearly understand the supportive role that our parents play in the successful development of their child.  Therefore, we will strive to consistently communicate our objectives with the parents. To maximize the potential of a young soccer player, parents are expected to:

  • Encourage the player’s efforts and support the player’s results at ALL times

  • Eliminate instructions from sidelines-coaches will provide instruction, parents will provide encouragement

  • Please do not question the referee’s on field decisions, the laws of the game are upheld by unbiased referees

  • Display excellent sideline behavior-every family represents our club at all times and are great sportsmanship role models for our players.

For any questions regarding our Sting Austin recreational, Academy or Select soccer programs, please contact the Sting Austin Youth Director of coaching at jamespritchard@StingSoccer.com.
