Cadets Rec Soccer Ages 6-14

About United Cadets Recreational Soccer

United Cadets is a parent-coach led recreational soccer program. The program is focused on kids having fun, and loving time playing soccer with new and old friends. The program includes some focus on skill building and games, but there is no high pressure put on winning.

The coaching is led by parent volunteers, but Plex staff are at each practice and game. Curriculum for practices are designed and provided to each coach through our Director of Coaching. Weekly practices are a time for skill building and some small sided game time to work on skills. 

Games are led by parent coaches as well with assistance and guidance with a Plex staff member and referees.  Each session is around 50-55 minutes.

What Parents Are Saying...

"Our daughter never played soccer before. After the first practice she wanted more. She learned techniques and strategies that will be useful in the future. We can't wait for the next season to begin!"

“We have been incredibly impressed with the Cadets program. The coaches do a great job of balancing skill training, sportsmanship and fun. We are also very impressed with the level of communication from the Director. We could not be more impressed with the Cadets Program and what it has done for our daughter.”
