Sunday Soccer: Skills + Pickup + Goalkeeper Academy

Sunday Soccer is done for the Fall 2023 season—see you next year!

AYSO Region 13 is happy to announce the return of Sunday Soccer. This weekly event is meant to give players an extra chance to develop their skills and love for the game during the fall season. Whether your player is looking to learn new skills, get a little extra practice, get some targeted goalkeeper training, or just wants to play soccer with friends who didn’t end up on their fall team this year, we hope to see you out on the field on Sundays! Sunday Soccer gives two different ways for your player(s) to participate: (i) Skills & Scrimmage and (ii) Goalkeeper Academy. Players may participate in either or both of these.

The program is included in the registration fee for all players in 8U or above and will last (at least) 3 weeks. If it’s a success, it will continue throughout the rest of the fall season — so help spread the word to recruit players and volunteers.

Sunday Soccer will be run by professional coaches from Launch Sports. Each age group will be broken up into smaller groups and players will be able to join groups with their friends as desired.

This for all ages: arrive whenever you’d like and play for as long as you’d like! Check-in upon arrival so that we know who is there and leave a phone number in case we need to call you.

1. Goalkeeper Academy
The Goalkeeper Academy will be run by professional coaches from Launch Sports. Small groups will be formed with players receiving targeted goalkeeping instruction for 30-60 mins, after which we hope players will join in the skills & scrimmages sessions.

2. Skills & Scrimmages
Throughout the entire two-hour 3:30-5:30 period, players can participate in small-sided soccer games. Players can arrive/depart whenever they would like. Launch staff and parent volunteers will do their best to create a rotating series of small-sided games with players of similar skill levels throughout the period. The beginning of the session will include a skills-oriented warmup period to get players ready for the scrimmages.

Parent Volunteering

AYSO depends on volunteers.  While we have professional coaches for the soccer component, we need parent volunteers to help check in coordinate the event.  Please let us know if you are able to help with either/both.
