Primary Skills Soccer: Juniors & PeeWee Teams
Description: The Spirit Soccer Primary Skills is for elementary-aged home schooled students, ages 5-12. The program consists of two levels: Juniors (ages 8-11) and PeeWee (ages 5-7). The Juniors team plays games with teams in the Stony Point League. This is a great opportunity for younger players to make friends, develop soccer skills, get exercise and prepare for MS and eventually Varsity soccer.
Location & Schedule:
Pee-Wee Team (Ages 5-7)
The PeeWee level is primarily focused on skill-building, and meets once weekly for practice. When feasible, scrimmages are arranged with other like-aged teams.
Practice: The PeeWee team practices Monday nights (only) at 5:00 PM at Charlotte Acres at Richmond Bible Church (6356 Sledd Dr. Mechanicsville, VA 23111).
Scrimmages: Scrimmages, when scheduled, typically take place during a scheduled Monday practice at Charlotte Acres.
Juniors Team (Ages 8-11)
The Juniors level includes both skill-building and games. In the first few weeks of the season, no games are held. During these weeks, the Junior team practices Monday and Thursday nights from 5:00-7:00 PM. Once league play begins, the team will practice on Mondays and play games on Thursdays.
Practice: The Junior team practices Monday and Thursdays* from 5:00-7:00 PM at Charlotte Acres at Richmond Bible Church (6356 Sledd Dr. Mechanicsville, VA 23111) on Monday evenings. (*until the game season begins)

Juniors Team Notes
- The fall season will focus on using the lessons learned in our Spring 2017 practice in live games at Stony Point. We will continue to focus on teamwork, toughness, agility, speed, endurance, positional discipline, strategy, and core functions of accuracy and strength.
- Uniforms: This year we are going to be a bit more put together on our uniforms. We will use our standard navy blue uniform tops, we ask that you provide your player/players grey shorts, and navy blue soccer socks. We will provide links to the best prices we have found thus far shortly.
- Parent Meeting: We will have a team meeting for parents and coaches after the first practice on the 28th. Please do your best to see that at least one parent can attend.
Costs: The cost for Primary Skills is $60 for the first player and $55 for each additional sibling. Discounts are available to volunteer parents. Please inquire. Please also see our Spirit Soccer Financial Aid page.
NOTE: For Fall 2017, there will be a cap of fifteen (15) PeeWee players, due to a coaching shortage. If a board approved parent/coach is willing to volunteer, an increase in players accepted will be considered.
