Martin United’s Recreational program provides children 9u thru 18u (birth years 2002-2011) the opportunity to have fun as they play and learn the game of soccer. Children and teenagers in our Recreational program will gain a better understanding of the game of soccer, and develop dribbling, passing, shooting, and defending skills. They will also create new relationships, and become part of a community club. All teams are coached by volunteer parent coaches, some of which are USSF licensed, who donate their time to help the community’s youth.

Fall Recreational Soccer Program
Players will be grouped by year of birth in two-year age increments, gender specific as numbers allow. Players will be placed on teams which will compete in the Treasure Coast Soccer League (TCSL) against other local Florida Youth Soccer Association (FYSA) affiliated soccer clubs. League play begins 14th September and runs through until the weekend of 11/23 & 11/24 of November. After the last week of the fall league season the TCSL hosts a soccer tournament “TCSL World Cup” for recreational soccer players at Halpatiokee Park, Sturt. The tournament will beheld on December 14th and 15th 2019.
Program Description – 12u and younger
The 9u thru 12u (birth years 2008-2011) age groups training format emphasizes enhanced skills development. The focus of practice is the development of individual fundamental soccer skills, including passing, dribbling, receiving the ball, and moving without the ball. Games provide players with an opportunity to use the skills they have acquired, without placing importance on the results of the game. Players must be allowed to make mistakes, without being chastised, so they can learn from them.
Per US Youth Soccer mandates, all FYSA affiliated clubs are not permitted to allow heading at the 12u age group and younger in recreational soccer. Players born 2006 or later are not permitted to head the ball in training nor games.
Program Description – 13u and older
The 13u thru 18u (birth years 2002-2007) age groups are organized for traditional team play. Practices are geared toward all skill levels, and games are played in the spirit of fun and healthy competition. The league may play 7v7 or 9v9 to promote players to have more touches of the ball in a game environment. The league may play full sided, 11v11. Ultimately, the number of players per side will be determined by the number of players and teams registered. Heading is allowed in these age groups.
