Dave Fromer Soccer and Mill Valley Recreation are excited to announce our 2nd annual Spring Soccer program!

This unique six-week program consists of small group skill-building sessions midweek and 5 v 5 games on Saturday.

The combination of skill training to improve technique, with the opportunity to apply these new skills in small-sided games provides players a great way to improve quickly and have lots of fun!

Games will be played 5 v 5 with teams consisting of 8 – 9 players. Coaches Marco Campos and Lewis Usher along with our amazing coaches will lead small group skill-building sessions on weekdays, and will run Saturday games, with teams coached by parent volunteers.

Our head coaches: Marco Campos and Lewis Usher will be leading Saturday games!

About 5 v 5 Soccer

Our Spring and Fall soccer programs are played 5 v 5 (4 + goalkeeper). In smaller games, players are put in a position where agility, speed, and awareness are put to the test, resulting in constant attention and an incentive for faster growth as a player. The more focus a player has, and the more play with the ball a player receives, the sooner their development increases. Compared to a classic 11 v 11 game, 5 v 5 puts emphasis on small touches, which means that a player will be in constant movement with the ball, whether it’s passing or receiving.

5 v 5 soccer, played in the streets throughout the world, has grown to become an internationally recognized form of soccer, known for its fast-pace and highly fluid play. We’re excited to bring you this same worldly style to the fields of Marin, where our kids can be immersed in the game as they grow with their teammates!

Spring Soccer 2018 will be structured like the Winter Indoor Soccer League, with coaches entering teams, and players being able to register as confirmed team members or as unaffiliated players to be placed on teams.

We will have our special End of Season Celebration for all players and their families!

Coach/Team Members

A team consists of 8–9 players. We recommend that a team have no more than 9 players in order to assure adequate playing time for each team member. However, this is not a mandatory limit. Once a player has confirmed with the coach that they’ll be playing on the team, they may register as a member of the team by noting their coach’s name on the registration form. Coaches must submit a roster of their players and a team name.

Unaffiliated Players

Players registering as unaffiliated players will be placed on teams. Whenever possible, requests for teammates will be honored.

We encourage parents to consider organizing a group of 8-9 players and entering as a team. We can add players to complete your team if you have a smaller group. A coach and/or team parent is required for each team. The time commitment is 1 to 2 hours per weekend game. No prior coaching experience is necessary. We provide training and clinics for parent volunteer coaches.
