Skyline Soccer Player Development Plan

Grasshoppers and Munchkins Program

The Grasshopper (2.5 – 3 years old) and Munchkin (4 – 5 years old) programs are specifically designed for the beginner player. Emphasis is placed on introducing players to the very basics of soccer in a high-energy, fun environment through interactive and imaginary games. Each program is six weeks long and the program you sign up for is where you will meet once a week – at the same time, on the same day, and at the same park. The cost of each six week session is $75, and includes a team t-shirt. The only additional equipment your player will need is shinguards; soccer cleats are optional but not required, and balls are provided for use at the field. Our Grasshopper and Munchkin programs are offered in the spring, summer, and fall. Winter programming coming soon.

6U-7U Recreational Program

Our Recreational program for 6U-7U age groups is designed to provide fun and development without the emphasis on travel or high-level competition.

Practice days and times will vary from team to team based on the choice of the volunteer coach.  All games for this age group are played at the same location (depending on available DPR Parks) on Saturdays and one Sunday.

Tournaments

Skyline’s annual fall tournament, the Skyline Cup, hosts over 1,000 players and over 80+ recreational teams playing in the 9U and 10U age groups!

The Skyline Cup takes place on a weekend in the middle of August each year (weather permitting). Each team will be given at least three games in two days with appropriate rest time given between each game. The teams will be split into gender specific/age specific groups to play matches against teams of similar ability.  The fundamental purpose of the Skyline Cup is to get recreational teams several games in a fun atmosphere to help them prepare them for the upcoming season.
