INDOOR SOCCER ~ 2 Sessions
Boys & Girls Grades Pre K-8th
Indoor Soccer is played at the LoVerde Sports and Recreation Center. Tiny Tots, Small Fry, and Big Shots will play on micro fields with either 4v4 or 5v5 games. This form of soccer causes more touches of the ball by the players (passes, dribbles, shots) and guarantees fun, skill development, and a fundamental knowledge of the game. JV and Varsity will play full field games with either 7v7 or 8v8 to continue the development for moving into outdoor 11v11 matches.  Universal Niles Park District uniform will be used for Indoor Soccer season. Uniform will be an additional $15.00.  Universal reversible jerseys will be used for all NPD Soccer Leagues year round.  You can purchase NPD soccer uniform at the LoVerde Sports & Recreation Center.  It is each player’s responsibility to supply their own shin guards and gym shoes.

Holiday Soccer Camp
Boys & Girls Grade K-5
Participants will get a chance to work on various aspects of the game of soccer, but this camp will focus on the individual's technical ability and incorporating those skills into small-sided games.  We will work on players becoming more comfortable with the ball at their feet in various parts of the game (possession, 1v1, penalty box, etc.).  We will also incorporate speed, agility, and mobility into our technical session to show everyone the different speeds the game can be played at.
