RECREATION PROGRAMS

Stafford Soccer offers several different divisions of soccer, Recreation, Revolution Academy and Travel. Within these divisions we offer programs for U5 through U19 players. U5 and U6 Recreation and ALL Travel age groups are formulated by the player’s true age, wherein the Recreation Division (U8-High School) and Revolution Academy age groups are made up of players within a two year age range.  The age groups are established by VYSA (Virginia Youth Soccer) and abided by Stafford Soccer.  CLICK HERE for the age chart for 2017-18. **Please note the required Stafford Soccer uniform pieces must be worn for each of these programs with exception to U5 Stars.
