Recreational Soccer

Our AFC United recreational soccer programs are designed to give older children (generally age 8 and older) the opportunity to play soccer in a fun, faith-based environment -- without the commitment that comes with playing the game competitively.

Please note that eligibility for all of our soccer programs is based on a child's birth year, in accordance with US Soccer standards.

Our recreational teams play in formal leagues, against both faith-based and secular opponents.  As such, our teams will be expected to play some of their games on Sunday afternoons.

As with all of our programs, our sessions include faith-based activities like prayer time and Bible lessons.
