About our development program
(In-House) Developmental Recreational – Galloway United Community Soccer is primarily devoted to the enjoyment and development of soccer players without the emphasis on travel and pressure to win. The goal is to provide an opportunity for the participants to have fun, learn the sport and develop life skills including a lifelong love of the game.
The (GUCS) Recreational Program is broken up into three different programs (Tots, Galloway Kickers and Rec) with each one designed to meet the needs of the majority of youth soccer players from ages 3 to 18 years old. They are open programs in which players of all abilities are encouraged to play and enjoy the game. Fun and skill development are above winning and to improve kids must “ Play”,
The Tots Program and Galloway Kickers Junior Academy Program (U7/U8/U9) are run by certified coaches to ensure our younger player receive the fundamentals in a fun environment so they develop love for the game and build up technical skills, ball comfort and confidence to successfully advance up the ladder of more competitive levels of play. All practices and games are held at the Tartaglio Sports Complex.
The Rec Programs are made up of volunteer coaches, that are assigned a team of random players, without regard to each player’s abilities and skills. The U6, U8, U10, U12, U15 and U19 Rec Teams participate in our in-house Rec league. They practice at local practice fields, playing games against other Rec Teams at Tartaglio Soccer Complex.
If you are interested in volunteering as a coach or assistant coach for a U8 to U19 Rec Team or have additional questions about any of the programs, please contact the of Recreational Director, Rich Echaveria at richyrichO8@hotmail.com or visit our website for more info.
