Recreational Soccer Program




August - November

About the Program

The VUSC Rec Program gives children in our community the opportunity to be involved in a sport, provide players with the best possible learning environment, and teach teamwork and sportsmanship. Vacaville United makes soccer fun and creates a lifelong passion for the game in young players, as well as creates a pathway to U8-U19 competitive club soccer. The Rec Program is the best option for young players as it parallels the U.S. Soccer training program which emphasizes player development over winning.

The new age-appropriate curriculum focuses on individual technical development, building confidence in young soccer players, improving cognitive development, and increasing imagination, by allowing players to learn the game gradually in a fun, and exciting environment.

  • Every player benefits from playing in every game.

  • We are committed to providing a positive, respectful environment.

  • Our focus is on the continued growth and development of our players to their desired potential.

  • We believe soccer can help build self-esteem, create lasting relationships, and teach life lessons.

  • We know we can achieve our goals only through the combined efforts of our parents, players, and volunteers.


WE NEED YOU!!! This Rec league is not possible without our volunteer coaches. That is why VUSC is proud to offer coaches that volunteer will be credited 1 players registration back at the end of the season with the return of all equipment. Recreational Parent-Coaches are volunteers who will be guided and mentored by Vacaville United’s Executive Director of Coaching, Kris Hall. He will teach how to instruct basic soccer fundamentals to players of all ages. This will ensure a positive experience for parent-coaches and players alike and helps players learn proper technique at the earliest ages. Coach Kris will introduce disguised learning in a variety of games and activities that will provide players many touches on the ball while maintaining a fun soccer experience.
