K.I.N.G.S (Kicking Is Not Good Soccer) U5-U6: What do you mean kicking is not good soccer? Soccer is a game of ball control. In this entry-level program for our age groups U5-U6 (2016-2015 birth years), we teach the players the FUNdamentals of ball control including dribbling, advancing with the ball in control, and beginning to work on passing. The U5(2016 birth year) program has a weekly one hour-long session consisting of a training session followed by games. The U6 (2015 birth year) program consists of a weekly 60-minute training session along with a game on Friday evenings or Saturday days. There is a high priority to making our KINGS program super fun! Choose from 5 weeks or 10-week programs.

Youth Development Program (YDP) U7-U8: Our Youth Development Program (YDP) (2014-2013 birth years) serves as step two in our Player Pathways and also serves as a bridge between our Recreational programs and our Competitive programs.  The YDP delivers an environment for the players to learn at a greater depth. With licensed professional coaches, we follow a curriculum designed to develop and improve the technical playing ability of each player. Players will develop a comfortability and greater confidence with the ball. The knowledge and technical ability gained will be applied to scrimmages and games. Lessons learned in YDP will be applied in competitive situations. Players in this program will have a weekly 60-minute session as well as 6-8 games being played on Friday evenings or Saturday days. All training sessions will be coached by a professional Charlotte Independence Soccer Coach with the games being volunteer-led.

Recreational U9-U19: is for our 2012-and up birth years. You’ll have two 60-minute sessions each week and games each Saturday. We place a high priority on learning the technical fundamentals in a team environment with additional games. This is a 10-week program. We will have coed and all girls age groups for U10 and U12 age groups. U14 and above age groups are co-ed.
