United Rec League (URL)

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THE UNITED REC LEAGUE

At Oshkosh United our philosophy has always placed player development first. As a result, in the spring/summer of 2016 we started a program in Oshkosh that follows the recommended guidelines developed by the US Youth Soccer Association for youth soccer players. 

The guidelines follow the principle that children are not little adults!!!!! Young children lack most of the physical, social, and psychological abilities needed to play adult soccer. US Youth Soccer consulted experts in the fields of physical education, sociology, and psychology to figure out exactly what children are cable of at different ages. Then, they built the "best practice" soccer model off of those age characteristics. The recommendation is for U6 and U8 soccer players play 4v4 on a smaller field. Having less players on a field (and playing on smaller fields) increases the amount each player touches the ball which leads to a higher level of engagement, skill acquisition, and most importantly FUN!!! It just makes sense!!!!!!!

Our URL program runs in the spring/summer of the year. The program is designed for beginning soccer players or for any soccer player looking for a great skill development program that doesn't involve travel to other communities. We seek parent volunteers to be coaches and we provide training to those volunteers including access to WI Youth Soccer coaching education courses, club provided practice plans that follow US Youth Soccer guidelines, and ongoing coaching support via our experienced coaching directors. If you are interested in coaching please mark down that interest when registering or email rec@oshkoshunited.com. 

 


Program Overview
The U6 and U8 United Rec League age groups have one event per week which is part practice and part game. U6 will take place on Tuesday nights and U8 will take place on Monday nights. We have had a few wet springs in a row so we are adding in built-in rain dates for the spring/summer 2021 season. If a day is rained out it will be made up that same week on either Thursday for U6 or Wednesday for U8.

Program Registration
All WI Youth Soccer Association clubs utilize the same registration program, Demosphere. When you click to register you will be taken to the Oshkosh United component of the state's registration system. The registration system will have you create an account that will be used when registering for any soccer program for any child (so keep that log-in information).

Please note, the Registration Fee is not refundable unless situations beyond the player's control (moving, long term injury, etc.) causes the player to miss the entire year.

Depending upon the age of your child and the time of the year, when you go to add a program to your cart you may have multiple options. If you have any questions about which program to select feel free to email rec@oshkoshunited.com with any questions or to request a phone call.
