The Our Lady of Victory Soccer Program is composed of three age-based levels of soccer development.

The Levels are Clinic, Intermediate, and Travel.

Clinic (Ages 4-5)

The Clinic level is for children ages 4 and 5 (pre-k and kindergarten) who are exploring their soccer interest. Clinic is played on a smaller scale field (20 yds x 30yds). Teams generally contain 6-8 players and games are played in a 5 vs 5 format to provide maximum game time for each player. Games are played Saturday Mornings starting in September to November. Once schools starts practices are only on Saturdays before the games.

The mission of the Clinic Division of the Our Lady of Victory Parish Soccer Program is to provide a safe and positive environment for children ages 4 and 5 to learn the fundamentals of soccer, good sportsmanship and teamwork.

Intermediate (Ages 6-7)

The Intermediate level is for children ages 6-7 (1st and 2nd grade) who are exploring their soccer interest. Intermediate is played on a larger sized field. Teams generally contain 10-12 players and games are played in a 7 vs 7 format to provide maximum game time for each player. Games are played normally Saturday Mornings starting in September to November. Practices vary depending on the coach, normally once a week.

The Intramural Division of the Our Lady of Victory Parish Soccer Program builds on the basic soccer skills learned in the Clinic Division and introduces children and parents to competitive-level soccer instilling self-confidence and the value of teamwork, thus equipping players to advance to the next level, if they so desire.

Travel (Ages 8-14)

The Travel level is for children ages 8-14 (3rd - 9th grades) who desire to play competitive, travel-league soccer in the Archdiocese of Baltimore Soccer League.  These games are played on regulation sized fields throughout the Baltimore area.  Under 10 year old and Under 12 year old teams play in an 8 vs. 8 format and Under 14 year old teams play in an 11 vs. 11 format. Games are played on Saturdays for boys and Sunday afternoon for girls starting in September to November. Practices vary depending on the coach, normally once a week.

The Travel Division of the Our Lady of Victory Parish Soccer Program will teach advanced soccer skills in an increasingly competitive environment, representing Our Lady of Victory Parish positively through the Christian example of its players, coaches and parents.

 

At all levels we want to Have Fun, Get Fit, and Make Friends.
