- Bring a ball, water, and have your tot in cleats and shin-guards.
- Please remember, this is an adult and child program. An adult must accompany your Tot and stay for the duration of the session.
Sessions will be filled with fun activities, encouraging the players and parents to interact while learning motor skills with and without the soccer ball. We will also incorporate opportunities for the kids to play small sided games (3v3 or 4v4). This will be a very relaxed environment where the players just enjoy the game.
On each given Tots Soccer date, Coach Ferguson will be the Head Coach, and will have other coaches assisting. However, it is imperative that each Soccer Tot is accompanied by a parent/guardian. This parent / guardian will be active in the session, helping the coaches during the activities.
We look forward to seeing you on the field

Recreational Level – Fairhope Soccer League
With the recent merger of Blast Futbol Club and Mobile Soccer Club this past May 2012 and renaming the whole organization to Mobile Bay FC, the FSL Committee has decided to rename the recreational side FSL-Fairhope Soccer League. FSL functions under the Mobile Bay FC organization along with our Academy programs (Blast Academy & Mobile Academy) and our MBFC Club/ Travel program. As one organization, there will be unity of effort in implementing our mission. This means more seamless interaction at all levels, maximizing the talents of our coaches and volunteers, and more effective use of our limited resources.
Fairhope Soccer League (FSL) will continue to give players the opportunity to have fun playing soccer, learn fundamentals, and get some good fitness.
The additional benefits for the Recreational Level include:
Coach Advisers for each age group will conduct skills training sessions appropriate to the players’ ages. Coach Advisers will also work with our volunteer coaches to develop age appropriate practice sessions. This will help our coaches feel more comfortable teaching soccer and enable our players to learn key parts of the game earlier in their development.
