The YMCA and Lakelands Toros Soccer Club’s partnership has changed recreation soccer in Greenwood. All recreation players register at the YMCA for fall and spring soccer. The YMCA organizes the teams, practice and game schedules and still have volunteer coaches. The Lakelands Toros Director Jamie Ramm will provide the expertise by conducting coaches training, providing practice drills, be present at all practices and games and hire certified officials for all games.
Youth Soccer is an exciting sport combining team play and individual skills. YMCA / Lakelands Toros Youth Soccer promises no try outs, no getting cut and no bench warmers! Every child plays while making friends and learning new techniques. Volunteer coaches are utilized and focus on skill advancement, participation and fun! While basic skills of the game are developed through practices and games, every child learns sportsmanship and values necessary to be successful in life. Every game begins with a Youth Sports Pledge and ends with a handshake.
Practices are conducted the first two weeks of practice. Once during the week and once on a Saturday morning. Games are on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday at 6:00pm or 7:00pm depending upon age division. Each child receives a shirt, shorts and socks for games and a trophy or medal at the end of the season.
