Rec vs. Rec Plus

Did you know that Noblesville United offers both Recreational and Recreational Plus soccer programs? If your son or daughter loves playing the game for fun or is higher in ability and looking for a little bit more of a challenge, we have programs structured for both.

What is Recreational Soccer and who should sign up for it?

Recreational soccer primarily devotes itself to the enjoyment and development of soccer players without the emphasis on high-level pressure to win. The purpose of recreational soccer is to provide an opportunity for the participants to have fun, play with a sense of team and community, learn the sport, and develop life skills including a lifelong love of the game. 

All practices and games will be hosted at NUSC facilities. The recreational soccer program includes new to intermediate skilled players who want to enjoy the game without as much time or intensity commitment.

The Benefits of Recreation Soccer

  • Recreational soccer provides a rich and enjoyable environment where children can be introduced to the sport in a nurturing and supportive way that allows them to learn the game, experience the game and grow to love the game
  • Low pressure, fun filled activities are essential to the development of basic skills and tactical awareness and recreational provides just that model
  • All teams are coached by a league trained volunteer
  • Guaranteed 50% playing time (1-2 practices a week and 1 match a week)

What is Recreational + Soccer and who should sign up for it?

The Rec+ soccer program is an advanced division for players U-10 through U-19. Rec+ is a natural next step for players who have obtained a higher level of soccer knowledge, skills, and abilities and are wanting a more challenging soccer experience. Competition and commitment for this division is higher than that of Rec. All practices and some games will be held at NUSC facilities. Players will have one team practice and one league-wide practice, with a certified trainer, each week. The Rec+ soccer program includes intermediate to advanced players who are ready to continue to enjoy soccer but at a more intensive level.

The Benefits of Recreational Plus Soccer

  • All Rec+ coaches are volunteers, league trained and generally have a little more experience
  • Time commitment and competitiveness is greater than Rec. One to two team practice and one academy style training occur weekly
  • Rec+ is a low-cost option compared to travel soccer. ($150/session ($300/yr) vs. $1,200-$3,000/yr.
  • Evaluations are required for your player to participate in the Rec+ program. Coach evaluation occur in season for current/previous players and during the summer and winter for Fall and Spring Seasons respectively.
  • Guaranteed 50% playing time (1-2 practices a week and 1 match a week)
