Intramural Plus (U9-U13)

FALL 2022 Registration is Live

The spring 2022 season is almost here!

Please register here

Season Starts: Saturday, September 10th! 

Saturday scrimmage:

U9-U10 (2013-2014 birth year): 9 - 10:30 at Guggenheim School

U11+ (2012 or earlier birth year): 10:30 - 12 at Guggenheim School

This is meant as a guide for you. If your child's friends are up/down a birth year, we can move them to that group. 

Practice: 

We have two practices every week and the kids are welcome to join either one. You may switch which practice you attend week to week (since I know schedules get busy and may change). 

Thursday: 6-7:30 at Manorhaven Park

Friday: 6 - 7:30 at Manorhaven Park

For boys and girls ages U9 - U13+. A more relaxed alternative to travel soccer.

Intramural Plus Soccer, which used to be Intertown, is a continuation of our recreational intramural program, providing a more relaxed alternative to Travel Soccer for 8-13+ year old boys and girls, including beginners.  Since players are grouped over several age groups, we do not need to follow the traditional age group matrix utilized for other programs. This means we can play your child up or down an age group to keep them with their friends.

Jon's personal statement about this program:

Having been a parent for Intertown soccer, then a coach, and now the organizer of the program, the step to Intramural Plus is a goal to keep the spirit of Intertown but to adjust it to a more local program. What does that mean? 

When I was looking for a soccer program for my kids I wanted something local, fun, and low stress for the players. My kids wanted something with teams and bonding. Intertown was the closest solution we found. Unfortunately, it still involved 1.5 hours of driving for away games on weekends.  

The Intramural Plus model is to have one weekly practice but to split the players into teams for weekend games locally.  We do this with scrimmage teams (so they may change week to week), as this allows for players to miss a weekend without letting anyone down. This gives the kids the joy of being on a team, lives up to the principals of Intertown, and provides a true alternative to the travel programs.

Last season (Fall 2021) the program grew to 70 kids. It was split pretty evenly between the two age groups--so we plan to keep it very similar this season. 

One big change is that I am working with Jigs to get the program a head trainer--someone who will be more involved in every practice and on Saturday. The goal is to provide a more consistent experience this season! 

Regarding the mixed age and co-ed practices and potentially teams: I believe in the mixing of ages and sexes for some activities for multiple reasons; it allows kids to bond beyond their peer group, makes transitioning into middle and high school easier, and can help to instill confidence and respect. I also believe there is benefit to same-sex teams and experiences. From my experience, different children succeed in different environments. We will experiment with different combination to see what works for this group of children. 

I hope to see your kids on the field! Please reach out with any questions about this program.

Intramural Plus goals are to: 

  • Have Fun: This means practice and games focus on the kids having fun. No screaming except to encourage, low pressure, and inclusive to all players. 
  • Try Your Best: Teach the kids to focus on what we control. Give maximum effort instead of focusing on results.   
  • Focus on Sportsmanship: The skills that allow for compassionate winners, grateful losers, and how to handle adversity on the field. 
  • Teamwork: Learn to be part of a team and how individual parts can make a better team.  
  • Everyone Plays: Every team member plays equal minutes in every game.  

The program includes: 
1. One 90 minute practice per week, run by a professional trainer.
2. Approximately 8 weekend scrimmages with local children -- no travelling outside of Port Washington. 
3. A uniform kit (jersey, shorts, socks - select sizing at registration checkout). 
4. A positive atmosphere facilitating a love of soccer!
