Recreational Soccer

Recreational Level is the Mississippi Soccer Association's entry playing level for boys and girls under 6 through under 19 Coed teams. It is the developmental playing division, which U.S. Youth Soccer Association requires its State Associations to provide. It is the least competitive level of soccer in SSA. Emphasis should be placed on skills development and soccer for fun. Mississippi Soccer Association recommends small sided games graduated up based on age level. Recreational soccer consists of a 12 week fall season (sometimes modified for weather).
