GENERAL RECREATIONAL PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY
The primary goal of the Chargers S.C. Recreational Soccer Program is not about winning, but to offer every player the opportunity to enjoy the game in a fun learning environment while honing new skills. Our recreational soccer program is for boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 18.
The Fall Rec Program consists of 2 separate programs (based on age group*). CLICK HERE for the 2021-22 Age Group Matrix. Then once you have confirmed your child's age group, click the corresponding program link below for more detailed information (fees, dates, practices, games, etc.).
* The "U" listed with the age group stands for "Under". When an age group is listed, that stands for those of that particular age and under. For example, 10U stands for those who are already 10 or are currently 9 year olds that will turn 10 during the season. Age groups are determined by birth year.

CAN I BE A VOLUNTEER HEAD COACH?
** CLICK HERE TO REGISTER AS A HEAD COACH**
Volunteer head coaches are essential to the success of our recreational program. It is for that reason that, in order to assist our volunteer head coaches, we offer coaching clinics, reference material, and the opportunity to attend club team training sessions to help to enhance their knowledge of the game and facilitate the overall experience for all players through your own development as a parent coach.
We would love you to consider coaching your child’s team as you will treasure this unique experience.
Any person who volunteers to head coach for one (1) full recreation soccer year (Fall Season to Spring Season), attends all coaches' meetings and coach training sessions for their team held during the Fall and Spring season, will be granted one (1) free player waiver for the Spring Recreation Soccer Season. The waiver is ONLY valid for the upcoming Spring Season. It cannot be carried over into any other soccer year/program nor transferred to another player.
Our coaches are provided with all the necessary training gear: Soccer balls, cones, vests (colored mesh shirts to divide teams into smaller groups).
If you are interested in coaching or have any questions, please feel free to contact Maggie Pesaresi, Program Administrator, at Maggie@ChargersSoccer.com.
Chargers S.C. do not own the fields on which we train and play. We use, help maintain and manage the City of Tampa and Hillsborough County School District facilities. In order to maintain good working relationships with the field owners, we ask that all players, parents, and spectators follow all county and city ordinances in effect. This includes the prohibition of alcoholic beverages and animals on the park grounds and smoking inside the playing field fence.

It is important to note that we will not cancel sessions prior to the scheduled session time due to weather unless it is obvious that the severe weather or field conditions will interfere with training/game.
