Recreational Program

Rec program 4-12 yrs

The Recreational Program is an in-house program run by the Recreational Director at FC Westlake.  Teams are coached at practices and for game day by volunteer coaches.  We aim to provide an organized, enjoyable, and safe experience for our recreational members, and to introduce the sport to more families.  Our program enables us to provide players with the first step on their soccer journey whilst playing in a less competitive environment.  We provide coach education and field support to all volunteer coaches.  This gives them the framework to deliver an enjoyable experience to all players.

The program is split into a Fall and Spring registration, and players will receive a uniform package included in the cost.

We can accommodate groups of friends and assign them to teams or individual registrations. All of the teams are formed based on gender, grade level, and school/district.
