South Orlando Soccer Club (SOSC) is a Coerver Partner Club and our Recreational Development Programs are designed to be the perfect entry point into the SOSC community for kids age 3 through middle school. We have two options for practice and training locations – Barber Park and Young Pine Park. Regardless of practice location, all games for both programs are played on Saturday mornings at Barber Park.


Early Registration Fees for Spring 2024 are $175 per player and include (1) professional Coerver Skills training per week. Volunteer coaches can elect to have an additional team practice.
. Each player will receive a Nike team jersey, socks, and shorts. You will need to purchase shin guards, which are required for all practices and games, a ball for practice (size 3 for ages 3-8 and size 4 for ages 9-l2), and cleats (optional and not required, but are highly recommended).

Early Registration Fees apply until December 1, 2023. Registration fees on or after December 2, 2023 are $195 per player. Late registration on or after February 1, 2024 are $215 per player.

  • We will not know the days of your child’s practice(s) until they are placed on a team after all registrations are in. Most teams will practice on Monday & Wednesday or Tuesday & Thursday. Our coaches select their practice day(s) and will notify you as soon as they receive their roster.
  • We are always looking for new coaches so if you are willing to jump in please contact Dan Sherfield at We will give you the training and equipment you need to be successful and you will receive a credit on your child’s player fees!
  • On game days, we recommend you bring sunblock, plenty of water to drink, and a chair to sit in. We also recommend that you arrive early so that games can start on time.
  • We will do our best to place every child with his or her friends or coach, but we cannot guarantee that we can fulfill your requests based on team size, the number of requests, age group, or whether the coach requested is actually coaching. Please note, teams are selected before you hear from your coach. Please understand we do the best we can to accommodate. Please be patient with our volunteers. Thank you for understanding.

Whether you are trying soccer for the first time or have been playing for many years you will find our recreational program to be a safe and fun environment for every child to play soccer while learning the proper technical skills to play the game. We believe it is important for all kids to have access to the beautiful game and for every player in our program to have fun while learning the right skills that support their growth as a player and community member. We partner with Coerver Coaching to provide professional age-appropriate skills training for every player in our program. For players who desire to play in our competitive division, we also offer our Developmental Bridge Program exclusively to our SOSC Recreational Development players so they can improve their skills to prepare them for this next step in our club.
