Rec Soccer

RECREATIONAL SOCCER

MLSC has partnered with Concordia Recreations District 3 to offer recreational soccer to the Miss-Lou community at the Vidalia soccer complex.  Together, along with the help of the Louisiana Soccer Association, we plan to offer soccer in the Miss-Lou like never before!  Our mission is to provide the youth of our community with a fun, structured, and educational soccer experience.  We want players to have a great time and to walk away having learned something new.  To do this, we've established player, coaching, and referee development initiatives.  Here's what's new this year:

Player Development Initiative
Player development is at the core of what we do.  We believe this all starts with the ball.  That's why we want to make sure that every player who signs up for their first time with the club receives a free MLSC soccer ball.  According to the United States Soccer Federation, there is a direct correlation between player development and the number of touches a player takes on the ball.  We want to make sure players are getting opportunities to play with the ball as much as possible.  We believe small-sided soccer games, along with age appropriate field sizes are the right way to approach player development.  Players will be placed in an environment that encourages fun activities and structured lessons.  Coaches will be encouraged to "just let the kids play" and discouraged from lines, laps, and lectures.  

Coaching Development Initiative
We plan to empower all of our volunteer coaches with the proper coaching equipment for their teams.  We've developed a curriculum designed for each individual age group and will hold novice coaching courses for all of our volunteer coaches.  We know how intimidating it can be to coach a sport you don't know anything about so we want to give coaches all the tools we can to make that process as easy as possible.  Our Director of Coaching, Daniel Rivera, will serve as a mentor to all of our coaches and provide guidance along the way. 

Referee Development Initiative
We believe that referees serve as not only arbiters of the game but as instructors as well.  It is important to the development of the player that they're in an environment that's controlled by referees who are fully equipped.  To do this, we plan to host referee certification courses along with the proper uniform and equipment that they will need.  Referees will be paid competitive wages for their services as well.  Our Referee Administrator, Will Christian, will serve as a mentor for those new referees to provide the proper guidance they need.

Registration
Fall recreational soccer will open in the late summer and Spring rec soccer registration will open during the winter months.  Registrations will be done through the Concordia Recreations District 3 website but a link to the registration form will always be provided here at misslousoccer.com.  We want to make the registration process as easy as possible.  No more having to drive somewhere to pay cash in person, registration is available to you right on your phone.  Uniforms are included in our registration fee and will be handed out by the teams coach prior to the start of the season. 

Communication
We believe that transparency and communication is very important.  We will release registration dates, schedules, and any contingency plans as soon as that information is available to us.  Although some circumstances are out of our control, the last thing we want is for you to be left in the dark only to be surprised with a last minute change of plans.  The quickest way to stay up to date with us is to follow our Facebook page and to make sure that the email address on your account is accurate.
