Program Overview

Our Recreational Program is split into two levels; KINGS (ages 4-6) and YDP (ages 7-12). Your players will be instructed by professional, licensed, and paid coaches for the best possible instruction and development experience. The program is under the guidance of Brandon Anselmo. Have questions about the program? Contact Brandon at brandona@independencesoccer.club. Here is what you can expect from both levels of play for our Recreational Programs; 

K.I.N.G.S (Kicking Is Not Good Soccer) is a program for ages 4-6 and focuses on the fundamentals of soccer and is designed to introduce individual techniques through fun games and small-sided play. Players will learn the basic techniques of passing, shooting, first touch, dribbling, and how to play the game through a fun-filled program. The program will offer increased contact time with a fun and energetic curriculum that has been tailored to work with these ages. The KINGS program will practice for one hour a week for 8 weeks with an end of season 3v3 scrimmage.

Youth Development Program (YDP) is a program for ages 7-12 who are not ready to make the commitment to travel soccer. The aim of the program is to develop the players into well rounded technical players with a strong understanding of the game. The program will also serve as an introduction to the Charlotte Independence player pathway.
