Recreation

Soccer for everyone!

Fun, fitness and friendships

The ASA recreational league is the largest youth sports league in Alexandria!

ASA’s recreational league is a volunteer based, inclusive soccer program for kids of all abilities and experience levels, ages 4-19. The league is all about fun, fitness and friendships! Teams practice once a week and play games on Saturdays in Alexandria (high school teams sometimes opt to practice twice per week).

The majority of kids are placed on teams that practice near or at their schools. This structure makes practices more convenient for families and helps group kids who know each other from school on the same team.

Junior Academy
For kids born in 2015 & 2016

The Junior Academy offers kids an early introduction to ASA’s Academy program with professional coaches, structured training sessions and a local league + scrimmages. Kids are identified and recommended by ASA coaches and invited to an ID session or practice for evaluation.

Junior Academy participants are often more comfortable on the ball than other kids their age and/or are interested in an extra practice each week in a structured environment. Many kids play on their Rec League team AND participate in the Junior Academy.

Thank you Parents coaches, volunteers.

The ASA Rec League is made possible by the incredible volunteer coaches who step up to coach each team. Are you a parent or adult who’d like to volunteer your time on the field?

No experience needed! ASA provides coaches with equipment (cones, pinnies, pop up goals), an ASA technical t-shirt and practice activities. Additionally, recreational coaches may contact ASA and request for practice support from a professional coach. Volunteer coaches provide a life-changing experience for kids on the soccer field and help make this league a family affair!

Sideline Behavior:

The Recreational League has a zero tolerance policy for negative and/or abusive sideline behaviour. Parents and coaches should be supportive sideline cheerleaders to help provide children with a positive and fun experience. Cheer for the kids — do not yell at the other team, players or referees.
