Recreation Program (REC)

The Chagrin Soccer Recreation (REC) Program is an introduction to soccer.  The mission of our REC program is to instill a joy of physical activity by providing safe and developmentally sound experiences to a healthy lifestyle and the sport of soccer. Our program uses a mixture of relying on volunteer coaches, parents, and trainers to provide the best development to our children.

Recreation Player Youth Profile

REC is for the youth player that wants to learn the sport, physical activity, and basic fundamentals and technics of soccer. Recreational soccer primarily devotes itself to the enjoyment and development of soccer players without the emphasis on high-level pressure to win. The purpose of recreational soccer is to provide an opportunity for the participants to have fun, play with a sense of team and community, learn the sport, and develop life skills including a life long love of the game.
