The Recreational League includes the following Divisions:
Division IV (Recreational, age levels U5-U10)
Recreational level of play for U10 and younger players. This level is open to all players wishing to participate. Teams should be formed in a fair and balanced manner with no selective elimination of players. All U10 and younger teams play small-sided games in accordance with the rules of US Youth Soccer.
FC Thunder Junior (U7 & U8 Only)
The Thunder Junior Program, available for U7/U8 players, is designed for children who may not be ready to join the Academy Program (U9/10), but want to experience a little more challenge than is offered in the Recreational Program.
Participating players will register, practice, and play games with teammates in the Recreational Program as described above. In addition, they will participate in a dedicated professional trainer-led session once weekly and have the opportunity to play against other advanced players several times throughout the season while still playing with their friends and recreational coach.
Division III (Recreational, age levels U11-U19)
Recreational level of play for U11 through U19 players. This level is open to all players wishing to participate. Evaluations may be completed to allow coaches the opportunity to identify the skill level of the players and to be used to balance teams. Teams may play intra-association through AAYSA, or may play only with other FC Thunder teams.
