BLAINE SOCCER CLUB REC PROGRAMS

Blaine Soccer Club offers a large recreational "in-house" youth soccer program for youth 3 - 15 years of age.

These programs emphasize an environment that is fun for all ages and skill levels.

It will introduce children to team play, allows them to make new friends and most importantly have fun while doing so.

Soccer also helps participants mentally and physically. The sport is physically demanding and helps to build strength, stamina and coordination. Soccer is a sport you can play at an early age and continue to play even as an adult.

The goal of the Blaine Soccer Club is to make this an enjoyable experience for all players, parents and volunteer coaches.

WHY PLAY SOCCER?

The game of soccer is accessible to everybody, regardless of the players' status in society. As organized sports go, it's relatively cheap, and many of the game's brightest stars have risen from very humble roots. 

The equipment required is very basic and registration costs are low.

Soccer is a simple sport to learn and play. Youngsters play soccer naturally, with very little initial instruction.

Players must think creatively and strategically and adapt to rapidly changing conditions; but at the heart of it, it's still a very simple game.

Soccer is a perfect combination of individual activity and team strategy in which players hone their skills and find ways to exhibit personal style, while at the same time, work closely as a team if they hope to achieve any measure of success.

Soccer is a game where scoring is not the only thing that matters. Smart, creative, heads-up play is just as important to coaches, players and spectators. 

Soccer requires and produces exceptional player fitness. It's a game in which players move constantly at various speeds and in various directions for ninety minutes, with very few interruptions. Players accelerate forward and move laterally all the time.

For millions of youth across the country it also provides tremendous social benefits, such as mixing with others, having to work as a team, contributing through individual effort to a collective goal, experiencing the highs and lows, picking each other up, competition, striving to be the best, aiming to win and supporting and helping others are all by products of playing soccer.
