Recreational Soccer

Klein Soccer Club brings together U4–U19 recreational players who want to play for fun and enjoyment. We also offer a wide array of programs, including skills training and Select Soccer programs, as well as a league for special needs children, ensuring there’s a place for everyone with us.

Soccer for Elementary School Children

For boys and girls ages 3–6 (U4–U6), the teams are coed. The children play 5 versus 5 format. There are no goalkeepers, and the team coaches are on the field with the kids.

For boys and girls ages 7–9 (U7–U8), the teams are a single gender. The children play in a 6 versus 6 format, with goalkeepers and referees. We use a modified set of soccer rules for these age groups.

For boys and girls ages 9–10 (U9–U10), the teams are organized by gender. The children play in a 7 versus 7 format, with goalkeepers, referees and all soccer rules, including the offside rule. Klein Soccer’s progression of adding players to a larger field as they grow older provides many benefits. It adds confidence at younger ages, and gives children a pathway to playing soccer on the full-size, 11 versus 11 field.

Recreational Soccer for Middle and High School

We offer recreational soccer for ages 11–18. At U11–U12, the teams are organized by gender. The children play in an 9 versus 9 format, with goalkeepers, referees and all soccer rules. At age U13 and older, the players move to an 11 versus 11 format, using a full-size field.

Under 19 Coed Soccer

We offer coed soccer for high school students (and college freshmen) who want to put together teams to play just for fun. In particular, players who have grown up with Klein Soccer Club enjoy this program because they are able to organize their own teams. They play an 11 versus 11 format, using a full-size field.

Klein Adult Soccer League

We offer recreational soccer for adults 20 years old to 29 years old (U29). The Klein Adult Soccer League will consist of 6v6 mens and 6v6 women’s teams played on Sunday’s at Meyer Park. Designed for those players who have grown up with Klein Soccer Club and enjoy playing the game.
