Saint Mary offers/supports soccer for girls and boys U6-U14. The U8-U14 programs are managed by Campbell County Youth Soccer League, however, the U6 program became available at Saint Mary for the first time in 2016.
The U8-U14 Recreational Program provides a low-cost option for kids to play soccer on a community-based team with their peers. Game scores are not recorded, no league standings are kept, and equal playing time is required. Teams generally have kids with a wide range of skills — it is not uncommon for teams to include players who are playing soccer for the first time, as well as players who also play on competitive “select” teams.
U6 Recreational Program (learn more)
After several years with the Campbell County North soccer league, St. Mary School decided to form its own U6 soccer program in 2016. We welcome P3, P4 and Kindergartners from St. Mary School and St. Mary siblings of those ages to our program. Our program groups preschool students in one league and kindergarten students in another. The St. Mary U6 soccer program will enable our children to grow in respect, understanding, and compassion for others, while providing a fun, learning environment to play soccer. In addition, we have an opportunity to build our community, through new parent coaches and a family atmosphere with friends. In order to minimize travel and maximize our time, all games will be played on St. Mary soccer fields on Sundays at 1:00pm. If you would like more information about this program, please contact Abbie Ochcner: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some U8-U14 teams will be utilizing the functions of TeamSnap this year. The app can be used for rosters, schedules, notifications, team chat, etc. The app is available for download on the following:
Teams are formed according to rules that CCNSC has adopted that comply with KYSA guidelines. To group kids by geographic locations, CCNSC has adopted sub-groups that align with local elementary and middle schools. Beginning this fall, teams will be formed based on the player’s age as of December 31st. US Soccer has switched to a calendar year model, versus the “old” cut-off date which was July 31st. U8-U14 teams will be formed somtime in July, and the U8-U14 head coaches will not get their rosters until sometime in early to mid August.
