U8-U15 Recreational Coaches always welcomed, experienced or not.

 

Over the last several years, the Grand Island Soccer Club Summer Recreation program has continued to grow and evolve – so as to meet the needs of players from 5 to 16.

 

Grand Island Soccer Club Summer Recreation Programs/Leagues provides basic instruction and is intended to be a 'FUN' league promoting fair play, good sportsmanship and teamwork for the youth of Grand Island. Teams will be balanced through a draft process, so requests are only supported in the case of siblings.
