Division 6 is an in-town program for children in first and second grade. The primary goal is to teach players basic soccer skills in a fun, non-competitive way. We want all children to have a positive experience regardless of their ability. All teams are separated by grade and gender.
Professional trainers conduct weekday practices once per week, and oversee the first three weeks of games on Saturdays. Parent coaches then lead their players on game days for the rest of the season. All games are played on Saturdays.
This program is also designed to welcome parents who are new to soccer to become coaches for the first time. Parents who volunteer to coach do not need any prior experience or knowledge of soccer. With 500 children participating in this division each year we need lots of help to keep it running!
Please volunteer! Sessions are only one hour per Saturday, and each team is assigned several coaches so that schedule conflicts are not a problem. Ridgewood moms and dads, please sign up to coach!
All players in the first and second grade program will receive an RSA jersey. First-graders will also receive a soccer ball. Soccer cleats are helpful but not required (molded plastic or rubber studs only – no football/baseball style cleats). Shin guards are mandatory.
Around Labor Day, parents are notified by their child’s coach and provided a schedule for the season. Please check our website for updates.
