Micro soccer is where it all begins! Harbor Soccer offers our Micro program for 4 to 5 year-old (U6) boys and girls. The program is an introduction to the sport with an emphasis on FUN and building individual skills and a lifelong love of the sport. Once a player completes the Micro program, they will be ready to move into Small Sided which allows for continued improvement of their soccer skills and overall knowledge of the game.
Micro soccer is played on a small field, using a small size 3 soccer ball. Coed teams of 6-8 players are formed by HSC according to the Rules of Competition from WYS and PCSA and coached by volunteer parents. Games are played on Gig Harbor area fields on Sundays, from September to early November in the Harbor Soccer Club Home League (HSCHL). Teams play 4 v 4 against other HSC Micro teams with no assigned goalkeeper.
All player registration is online. Registration opens April 1st and closes July 31st. Registration fees include the players uniform kit and soccer ball. Early-bird registration fees apply April 1st to May 31st. Teams will be formed no later than July 31st. All teams will be looking for parent volunteer coaches. Training sessions will be held 1x per week for 30-45 minutes starting mid to late August and continuing for the remainder of the season; contingent on field availability and daylight hours.
Player, Coach and/or Team special requests are welcomed in Harbor Recreational programs. Although we cannot guarantee they can be met, we work diligently to honor them. If you have a player, coach, or team request, be sure to note it on the applicable field of your player's profile in Affinity/Sports Connect during registration. Please do not email special requests. They need only to be listed on their profile, so they are visible during team assigning. HSC cannot accommodate special requests for specific training days or locations. We appreciate your assistance!
Are you interested in coaching? We need you! Harbor is lucky to have decades of youth soccer experience to share with our recreational players and coaches. Including curriculum and best practices from licensed professional coaches and players in our Premier program. We understand just the thought of coaching little kids, especially our own, brings several questions to mind – we have answers! Reach out to our Micro Program Director with your questions or for more information and the game plan on coaching in Harbor Rec. We greatly appreciate our parent volunteers and work hard to support their coaching success with Harbor Soccer Club.
