Martin United and Jensen Beach recreational soccer programs provide children 4u thru 18u (birth years 2002-2013) 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 community volunteer parent coaches who give their time to help the community’s youth to have fun and learn about team sports.
Martin United takes the responsibility of mentoring and training the children very seriously and we require the highest of standards for anyone we allow to participate. To ensure this, all Coaches, Trainers, and Board members are required to be fully background checked, have their certificate from www.safesport.org, and have their “Heads Up” certificate from the CDC to recognize concussions.
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 is scheduled to begin on the 19th September and runs through until the weekend of 20th/21st of November. After this last week of the fall league season on Nov 20/21st, the TCSL hosts a soccer tournament “TCSL World Cup” for recreational soccer players at local parks in Martin County. The tournament is scheduled to be held on December 11th/12th 2021.
Program Description – 12u and younger
The 9u thru 12u (birth years 2009-2012) 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 mistakes.
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 in the year of 2010 or later (2011, 2012 etc.) are mandated by US Youth Soccer not to head the ball in at all in FYSA training events or league games facilitated by Martin United and the Florida Youth Soccer Association (FYSA).
Program Description – 13u and older
The 13u thru 18u (birth years 2003-2009) 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.

Martin United’s Spring Soccer Program is the final step of our annual recreational player development program. This Spring Program follows our Fall League and Winter Academy recreational soccer programs to help develop players further for either the next recreational season in the fall of 2022 or the competitive player tryouts that will be held at the middle/end of May 2022. This competitive tryout will be offering positions to players born in 2014 thru 2003 on competitive teams for the 2022-23 program season.
Martin United believes that putting one’s best educators at grass roots level develops players quickly to mold the right habits and correct technique.
Martin United’s Spring Program focuses on raising the technical skill level of each player, and will be taken by USSF B & C National license certified trainers. This season will focus on “the player”, from 5u thru 16u, to continue the development of their basic soccer fundamentals (skills & technique). The player placement for training will be based upon each player’s current level of ability, as well as the player’s age group. Players can and may be mixed, even by gender, if ages allow, for training and small sided games.
