Kindergarten Recreation Program
MSI offers its popular recreational program for Kindergarteners with an emphasis on fun-based games and skills development. Children are formed into groups that are based on school communities to the extent possible, and do not play an organized league schedule. They also do not have practice during the week. Rather, each Saturday involves small group training/skills development games, led by an MSI staff coach, followed by informal small-sided game play. These activities are designed to promote individual skill development and enjoyment of the game, with a top level objective of many smiling faces!
The registration fee for the Spring 2021 Kindergarten season is $80 for 5 sessions. For questions about the kindergarten program, please email Natalie at [email protected] REGISTRATION FOR SPRING IS CLOSED. PLEASE REGISTER FOR THE FALL WHEN REGISTRATION OPENS.
Location and Schedules
The Kindergarten Program is held at central Montgomery County locations. Specific field locations, group assignments, and season schedules will be announced about two weeks prior to Opening Day. Groups and schedules are posted at msisoccer.org, schedules, kindergarten.

The kindergarten program meets for five Saturdays. The time commitment for the Kindergarten Program is for one (1) hour on Saturdays, with start times typically ranging between 9:00am and 12:00pm. The sessions start every half hour; i.e. 9:00am, 9:30am, 10:00am, etc. It is important to note that your child's group will have varying start times each week, but the field location will usually be the same for the entire season. Weekly sessions consist of 25 minutes of fun-based skills development, led by an MSI Staff Coach, followed by 25 minutes of fun-based game play.
Group assignments will be finalized and posted on this web page approximately two weeks prior to opening day. Kindergarteners are formed into groups based upon their current elementary school, unless otherwise requested in the registration. If you'd like for your Kindergartener to play with a particular friend, please indicate that in the "group request" field in the registration.
Players should wear a blue tee shirt. In addition all Kindergartners should wear proper soccer attire, which includes shin guards and cleats (or regular tennis shoes). Each player should bring a size 3 soccer ball, a water bottle, and a great big smile on their face!
