Recreation League Overview

Shelton Recreation has seen its highest enrollment in 10+ years in Spring 2023 and as a growing club, Shelton Youth Soccer Organization is proud to welcome and introduce the Inter CT FC Coaching team to partner with us for the Fall 2023 Recreation season to create a new program to help develop our players.  

The Inter CT FC Coaching team will provide centralized coaches at all the practices, to lead the soccer curriculum and demonstrate proper techniques.  They will be dedicated to the Recreation program only and oversee the progress of 2-3 teams (~16-20 players) at a time.  Volunteer Parent Coaches will still provide more of the hands on, emotional, and administrative support to their respective teams.     

At the youngest levels, our youth players will develop their social and motor skills while learning to become comfortable dribbling and kicking the ball.  As the players mature to grade school levels, they will learn passing, positioning, and using more technique as opposed to raw athleticism.  Players who excel here will be encouraged to join our Academy program to help further their curriculum.  

Players within the intermediate to high school levels will continue to refine their soccer fundamentals as well as strategy such as attacking the open space, crossing techniques, dribbling around players, defensive tactics, etc. 

The Fall 2023 Recreation season will start practices the week of Monday, September 4th.  Players will practice with their team once per week, on the same night each week throughout the season.  The first games will be played Saturday, September 9th.  All teams are expected to practice at East Village Park, with the youngest players starting at 5:15pm, the middle-aged players at 6:30pm, and the oldest at 7:45pm.  SYSO will try to have as many players practice as early as possible, based on field space. Games will be played at Capewell Park, East Village Park, and the Nike Site.  The initial team rosters will be announced on approximately Saturday, August 19th.
