From Gus Bender, Illinois Youth Soccer President
Recreational soccer is the foundation of our game. It is where players first learn to enjoy the sport and learn soccer skills in a fun and safe environment. It is where many parents have their first interaction with soccer as a volunteer coach or as an anxious parent on the sideline of their child’s first rec game.
Illinois Youth Soccer has over 70 recreational member leagues that offer great programs that emphasize fun and not winning at all cost, in which young players learn and enjoy soccer in a positive environment with their schoolmates and in their own community.
Illinois Youth Soccer provides educational programs and risk management information to our member leagues. Through this publication, we are promoting our recreational member programs and offer a resource for parents looking for a credible program to get their child started in the world game.
Good luck with the start of your soccer journey!
-Gus Bender, Illinois Youth Soccer President

What You & Your Child Should Get From Rec Soccer
Adam Howarth Illinois Youth Soccer Director Of Coaching
Recreational Soccer: What Should I Expect
Below are 2 key elements to what you should look for in a recreation soccer program. All programs are different but as long as they are following the philosophy of ideas set up below your son/daughter will enjoy their first introduction into soccer!
How should the program be set up? ● There is no selection/tryout process. ● Skill evaluations may be held to form teams in a fair and balanced method. ● All players who register are assigned to a team as long as space is available on team rosters. More often than not teams are set up based on school district boundaries. ● There is usually a one- time registration fee. ● Players benefit from the opportunity for social interaction with other players ● All games are usually held at the same, local location every weekend for 6-8 weeks. ● Typically, coaches are parent volunteers.
What should I expect from my coaches? ● Positive Attitude, Respect and Sportsmanship for all. ● Try to play attacking and creative soccer ● Equal playing time. ● The priority is to give players opportunities to play to their strengths and eliminate their weaknesses.
3 Tips For Soccer Parents
1. Let the player’s play and the coaches coach! It is easy to get involved in the game and at times say too much during the match. As a parent it is easy to get too enthusiastic when watching your son/daughter play. Keep your comments to yourself and be supportive!
2. Avoid criticizing the Referee The job of a referee is not an easy one and at the recreation level this is often their first experience doing soccer matches on a consistent basis. Give them the benefit of the doubt and let them learn as the game goes on. Often you will see the same referees for your matches so avoid comments during matches.
3. Avoid talking about the match in the car When the game is over, more often than not, your son/daughter has often moved on. It is up to you to do the same thing. Do not worry about how well or poorly they played. Keep your focus on the process and work with them to improve their game

One of the core principals of recreational soccer is players having fun. Sometimes, parents can be over-enthisiastic when rooting for their child and sometimes that enthusiasm can have an adverse affect on a young player. While the below videos have a humorous take on some of the situations, they certainly focus on the very important point that SOCCER IS SUppOSED TO BE fUN fOR THE kIDS.
