We are excited to announce that after a successful pilot of our Summer League in 2022 we are bringing it back this year! Where we will be offering our player centered 4 week ASC Summer League. This will be organized and led by our Director of Coaching, Paige Forster and her staff who will be responsible for player safety, league coordination, team formation and overseeing each game.
Our Program Philosophy: This summer league will provide an alternative environment to our organized Spring and Fall leagues. The format creates a relaxed, no-pressure environment without worrying about team status, individual status or coach/parent pressure. The hope is that this gives players opportunities to further develop technical, social and communication skills. As well as just being part of a fun playing environment.
Players are able to experiment and learn from mistakes (and successes) and not be afraid to try new things when there is no one “teaching” them. There will be no coaching but each field will be staffed for organization and safety purposes. Without coaches, players will learn to communicate with each other on and off the field.This helps with awareness, understanding of the game and learning to think and problem solve. Despite this being a league, results are not recorded.
Teams are not pre-formed, all teams will be picked on the day at the field and will change week to week. This provides an opportunity for players to play with and against different teams and players, it provides different challenges and it allows players to develop their soccer social needs. To note, Coach Paige will carefully select players at random to allow for a competitive team game.

All players that have both their grey and maroon jersey we ask that you wear them (bring both). For any players that do not have those jerseys we will provide colored pinnies. Shin Guards and soccer cleats/shoes are mandatory.
