Recreational Season - COVID 19 Updates

At this time we are still planning for a summer rec season.  The SSA Rec Board Members have been discussing possible contingency plans for the season based on when we will be able to officially start the rec season.  Right now, the tentative plan is for the Spring Rec Season to start Mid-May and to end Mid-July.  This means that we would be moving the season back by about two weeks.  This would allow us to still get a full season in.  This plan will continue to be evaluated based on any updated information that we receive from the Governor.  SSA is prepared to further adjust the season as needed so that we can see the rec players get to play this summer.

REC Overview

Designed for boys and girls PreK-6th Grade.   The rec. program is perfect for both beginners and those looking to improve.   Practice plans are age appropriate, developed by licensed coaches, and focused on having fun.  The kids will love to hear that most of the dates are set up for lots of GAMES!   

Rec Club Objectives
Develop soccer players at an early age. Teach basic skills of soccer. Have fun.

Age groups
For the Rec league we use the PreK* - 6th grade level for team assembly.
               *Pre-K player must turn 4 years old by May 1st

Boys will play on Tuesday evening and Saturday morning.

Rec Soccer Information

Once enrolled - We will communicate this news to you first via a TWEET.  Download the Twitter app or go to and follow @ShakopeeSoccer. We will then update our website.  It is your responsibility to check the website for updates, information, and weather cancelations during the season.

Steps to get the info you need:

  1. Find your child’s name on the age appropriate Roster.  Rosters can be found under "Rosters-Schedule" (a tab above). 
  2. Identify which team number/team name your child is on, and who the coach is.  If no coach is listed for that team, we will need one of the team parents to step up and help out.
  3. Find your child’s team’s schedule so you know where to be and when.  The complete schedule for each team can be found under "Rosters-Schedule" (a tab on the left).
