Topeka Soccer Club hosts the largest recreational soccer league in Shawnee County.

Come see why.

Our Recreational soccer programs offer soccer options for every age and skill level, including adult. It is ideal for the casual player or those just entering the sport. All teams are volunteer led and get free training from our professional soccer staff to help them throughout the season.

Our Recreational soccer program provides boys and girls teams for ages U5 through U14. We welcome both fully formed teams and individuals looking to join existing teams. Although the Rec division is strictly for fun, we still expect players, coaches, and spectators to follow the TSC Code of Conduct.

Why is soccer so expensive?

Uniforms

Thanks for our association with PUMA, we are able to provide jersey at a reduced price to our membership.

Fields & Equipment

Field maintenance, equipment upkeep, property taxes, and water are expensive. We are one of the only clubs that own their property.

Referees

The most overlooked and important part of the game is our amazing referee staff. These folks deserve more.

Administration

Paying our staff to keep the teams organized as well as provide liability insurance, this website, TeamSnap, and other costs.

The 6 Game Models of Youth Soccer

US Youth Soccer (USYS) and the US Soccer Federation  (USSF) split soccer players into 6 different groups based on age. The 6 game models are listed below and we hope this chart begins to help you and your player understand what you need to be successful when you start.

  • Ages 4-7
  • Size 3 soccer ball
  • Focus only on ball skills and fun. There are no 4v4 tactics. Passing, shooting, and defending are secondary to ball control and dribbling.
  • The only focus is "Can I do it?" at this age. Learning the soccer skills: dribbling forward, backward, side to side and stopping or turning
  • Teams can have up to 8 players on their roster. They play four 10 minute quarters.

The 3 Soccer Questions

With our Rec soccer players we try to answer the first soccer question: "Can I do it?" and move them into the second of three questions, with the second question being: "Can I do it with my head up?" For instance, can I dribble forward, backward, and to each side? Can I receive and complete a pass? Can I stop the ball from rolling?

After the answer to "Can I do it?" is "Yes!," the next question is "Can I do it with my head up?" Can I dribble forward, backward, and to each side WITHOUT LOOKING DOWN? Can I make and receive passes WHILE LOOKING AT MY TEAMMATES? Can I stop and turn and quickly look up?

Finally, players need to ask, "How fast can I do it with my head up?" Can I accomplish this action with the fewest touches possible? Can I settle the ball with a single touch? Can I dribble past my opponents or quickly find and execute a pass?

Not sure what they should practice?

What age are we?

In 2016, US Soccer changed the way teams are formed by age. Although it took us a while, we are now 100% compliant.
