Recreation

The main objective of the Dakota United Recreation Soccer (BSL)  is to provide all children, regardless of experience, an opportunity to learn more about the game and the basic skills needed to play soccer. We emphasize that learning is more important than winning.

This program is for Pre-K through 6th Grade.  Recreational soccer is offered in the Spring and Fall seasons. 

Teams normally practice once a week at one of the elementary schools or the Cottonwood Soccer Complex. The practice day, time and location are selected by the volunteer coach during Coaches Handout Night.

Games are typically held on Saturday's at the Cottonwood Soccer Complex on South 12th Street. 

Teams are formed by grade and school.

All players should bring a soccer ball and water bottle to practices and games.

Fall recreation soccer typically starts in early September and runs through mid-October. Spring recreation soccer typically starts in mid April and runs through May. We schedule 6 games with practices during the week. Please consider volunteering to coach a team. (Our recreation program is successful because of our great parents that step in to help! Thank you!)  Practices are held either at Cottonwood Park or in neighborhood school fields once per week on weeknights.  Players are required to have a soccer ball, shin guards, and water bottle.  

Age groups may be combined if registration numbers warrant. We do our best to keep players on teams with kids at their school and grade level so please choose your player's grade level correctly.
