FC814 Soccer

Recreational/In-House Soccer

The primary objective of the Recreational/In-House program is to enable players to learn the game of soccer in a fun and stimulating environment.  This level of soccer is implemented as a member program
 
FC814 is designed for girls and boys ages 4 to 13 and emphasizes fun while learning the game of soccer and the meaning of sportsmanship.  FC814 Soccer annually serves more than 500 children in Blair County and is an all volunteer organization with parents coaching and sponsoring the various teams. Our mission is to develop and deliver quality youth soccer where everyone builds positive character through participation in a fun, fair, safe, family environment. We offer soccer teams for boys and girls ages 4 to 13 in Altoona, Hollidaysburg and surrounding Blair County areas.

Core Principles

Core principals are living tenets that separate it from other sports organizations. They are Everyone Plays®, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development.

Everyone Plays®

Our program's goal is for kids to play soccer so we mandate that every player on every team must play at least 50% of every game. It’s no fun to spend the game on the bench…and that’s no way to learn soccer!

Balanced Teams

Each year we form new teams as evenly balanced as possible because it’s more fun and a better learning experience when teams of similar ability play. It allows for each player to gain the experience of a wide variety of teammates of different skill levels.

Open Registration

Our program is open to all children between 4 and 13 years of age who want to register and play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing. There are no elimination try-outs and nobody gets cut.

Positive Coaching

Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment for the players and leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players. A coach can be one of the most influential people in a child’s life.

Good Sportsmanship

We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and our program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet.
 

Player Development

We believe that all players should be able to develop their soccer skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually and as members of a team, in order to maximize their enjoyment of the game.
