Having The Time of Their Lives
The soccer player rating clinics begin September 1st for children Kindergarten through 8th grade. You might be wondering, what is a player rating clinic? This is where Recreation Department staff assesses fundamental skills of a child for a specific sport.

The reason these clinics are important is because each team should have players at different skill levels to provide well-balanced teams. It is not mandatory to attend one of these clinics to be in the league. But attending a clinic is helpful towards a successful season.

The Recreation Department doesn’t track wins and losses for the teams. Winning or losing is not the league focus of the Recreation Department. The Recreation Department’s primary goal for league sports is that each child have a positive experience, play in the game, build skills and promote personal growth.

So what are the ingredients to reach this goal? It’s a team effort of our office staff, volunteer coaches, game officials, sponsors, field prep staff as well as landscape staff, league coordination, and support of our City officials. Behind each goal scoring smile is a team of great people.

The 2009 Recreation Department soccer season serviced 306 youths on 34 teams. We anticipate similar numbers this year. This season’s soccer sponsor for all the teams is Dr. Andrew Huxford. When you need to put a smile on your face this fall, call the Recreation Department for the soccer schedule and head down to Pratte Soccer Fields at Veterans’ Memorial Park to witness first hand Boulder City youths having the time of their lives.
