The next level up from Intramural is Recreation. Recreational teams play in the NVYSL - Northern Valley Youth Soccer League in and around the Lehigh Valley. Home games are played at the Lehigh County Sports Fields - LCSF. Away games may call for driving sometimes 15 - 45 mins away.
The team will provide a great atmosphere for your child to build on the following life traits:
- Positive Thinking
- Decision Making
- Time Management
Recreation may practice 1 - 2 times weekly, each 1 - 2 hours, various locations in Allentown. Year-round at coach discretion.
Play 8 - 10 games per season on weekends, against opponents througout the Lehigh Valley. The focus of the league is instructional. There are no league championships; play against other clubs provides competitive feel.
Skills and tatics appropriate to player level. AYSC coaches may hold certification or are experienced. Players are coached to excel to their potential.
In the fall games kick off the weekend after Labor day and play on Saturdays. Spring games begin April 9, 2016.
