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.

US Youth Soccer Introduces Practice Guides for U6-U8, U-10 and U-12 Age Groups
Parent Coach Practice Guides
FRISCO, Texas (May 6, 2013)  The US Youth Soccer Coaching Department has introduced its latest coaching resources with three age-specificpractice activity guides. The three guides — for the U6-U8, U-10 and U-12 age groups — give coaches an idea of what should be covered throughout a season while highlighting activities that focus on development in a low-stress, fun-filled environment.
 
Each resource covers multiple types of practice activities, from warm-ups and individual training to small-sided and group games. The exercises are tailored to meet the cognitive and physical characteristics of each age group.
The guides each contain individual activity descriptions with accompanying coaching points, so coaches are aware of what to watch for during each exercise. With 20 sessions broken down in each guide, there are more than enough activities to meet the needs of any youth soccer season.
 
US Youth Soccer U6-U8 Practice Activities
- Provides a list of varying characteristics of Under-6 and Under-8 players in regards to sports.
- How to play Small-Sided Games with “large” rosters.
- Activities focus on individual soccer skills that build on one another.
 
US Youth Soccer Under-10 Practice Activities
- Provides a list of characteristics of Under-10 players.
- Advice on how to connect with the youth athlete.
 
US Youth Soccer Under-12 Practice Activities
- Information on inserting tactics into training.
- Activities geared toward development and decision-making.

The practice activity guides can be very beneficial to those new to coaching youth soccer and act as a useful resource for experienced youth coaches. You can download all three practice activity guides below, as well as other useful resources from the US Youth Soccer Coaching Department.
