FAQ

Is this program run by the City of Carlsbad?


No! We are a separate stand alone organization. We are so proud to be a member of the Community of Carlsbad, but we are not run by the City.




My child has never played soccer before, will that be a problem?


We love introducing kids to soccer! No experience is necessary - our program is designed for players whether it's their first or millionth touch.




Will this be a big time commitment?


Depending on the season, you can expect about a 2hour commitment each week. We also offer periodic camps and clinics! We offer programs for all levels - our recreational program is a great way to get started with the sport of soccer.




What is the difference between competitive and recreational soccer?


Recreational soccer offers players a chance to get out and play without committing to multiple days per week of training. Most games are played against other teams in the same organization. It's a great way to figure out if soccer is the right sport for your player! Competitive soccer is designed to advance players who are ready to commit to soccer as their primary sport. Typical players train 3-4 times per week and may travel for games.




Do you accept volunteer coaches?


Yes! Our program could not run without the time and effort of our volunteer coaches! We have a great network of professional coaches that support our volunteers, but without a doubt volunteers are the backbone of our program! If you are interested in volunteering - please let us know!




Can my son/daughter play with their friends?


Yes! We believe that soccer is better with friends! We do our best to meet friend requests, but of course still have to take into consideration: age, roster size, level of play, etc. Most of the time it's not a problem!




What is arena soccer?


Arena soccer is played outdoors but on a field with walls - so the ball stays in play - lots of action and lots of touches on the ball!
