FLORIDA ELITE SOCCER ACADEMY

THE RELENTLESS PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE


RECREATIONAL PROGRAM OVERVIEW


Our Recreational Program is the heart and soul of our Club. The program is designed to create a fun filled, organized playing environment for players of all skill levels. It is a place for players to be able to play with friends while experiencing the joys of competing in this beautiful game. Here is an overview of the steps involved each season:

1. If you have not already, we recommend that you start with creating your free Florida Elite account. Simply click on REGISTER at the top right of our web page. This will allow to create your family account and add as many players as you want.

2. Next choose the location that works best for your family below. We have multiple locations to choose from. The great thing about having a Florida Elite account is that all of the Programs available to you will be shown in your family account based on your player(s) age.

3. Each location page with show available programs in your area and will list registrations based on age/gender.

4. During the registration process you will be asked if you would like to volunteer as either a Head coach or an Assistant Coach. Our Recreation program is a volunteer coached program. All of our volunteer coaches complete a background check and required SafeSport screening. Volunteering as a Coach is a fantastic way to spend time with, and make a positive difference in the player's lives. All of our coaches are required to adhere to our positive coaching standards. 


5. Once you register for a program, you will be able to easily order your Florida Elite uniform for your player(s). All players must wear the approved, current uniform to compete in our Recreational program. These uniforms are provided through our apparel and equipment partner WeGotSoccer. Your confirmation email will have all of the details about ordering your uniform which will be either delivered straight to your door, or available for pickup at the WeGotSoccer store in Jacksonville.

6. During the registration process, our Directors are working on putting the teams together. The team formations are based on requests (during the early registration dates), player home location, team need and are all considered on a first come, first serve basis. Teammate/Coach requests are always considered, but not guaranteed.

7. Approximately 2 weeks before training begins (typically 2 weeks before the games start) our Volunteer coaches will begin reaching out to their players. For Fall Recreation program you will typically hear from your coach in mid-late August and for the Spring Recreation program you will typically hear from your coach in mid-late February. These date time frames are always posted on the Registration page. If you don't hear from your coach by those dates, please reach out to us at [email protected]

8. Practices (training) typically begins 2 weeks prior to the Season Start date. This is the date that games will begin.

9. Game schedules are released 1 to 2 weeks prior to the Season Start date. Your Coach will share the schedule with you and it will also be available on your Team page. 

As always, if you have any questions as all, please reach out to us at [email protected]
