The North Baton Rouge Youth Soccer Recreational Program stresses the fundamentals of soccer and concentrates on the players having fun playing soccer. In conjunction with having fun, our recreational coaches try to instruct our players in the basic skills and strategy of playing soccer. Recreational Soccer is generally split in three or four different age level groups (Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade, 3rd and 4th Grade and sometimes 5th and 6th grade) and encourage fellowship and enjoyment of the game of soccer.

In the Recreational League, winning is not a priority; quite the contrary, learning about the game of soccer and having fun with the rest of the team is the priority. The Recreational League has two seasons: Fall season usually starting in September, and Spring season starting in March.
