Pre-Competitive Soccer: Pre-K to U8
Pre-competitive soccer is for all boys and girls in pre-k through 2nd grade looking for an introduction to the game. The focus is to teach, educate and develop these new players to the sport and have them continue with our program into our competitive and academy soccer programs. We want to develop future soccer players with a focus on technical skills in a fun and safe environment.
This program is where Overland Park Soccer Club started. It is for boys and girls from pre-k to 2nd grade players and are often organized by school of attendance and skill levels. Professional training is included in registration cost of each program.
All pre-K and kindergarten (u5 and U6) games are played at Roe Park. All players will receive training session provided by OPSC staff coach before each game.
U7 and U8 (1st grade & 2nd grade) games are played at both Roe Park or at Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex. All U7 and U8 players are trained by our USSF licensed coaches twice a week and at games!
Practice locations for recreational teams are assigned by Overland Park Soccer Club by working with our coaching staff. Some of the locations include many of the area school district fields and local parks.

OPSC’s goal in this league is to provide soccer development for all who wish to play. Coaches and teams are kept together as possible, however, no coach may refuse a player from his team. We have many players sign up without a coach and they are placed on an available team closest to their home.
New players: Will be placed on a team following the registration deadline. You will receive your assigned coach’s contact info via email. Please contact them for season information.
Returning players: Please contact your coach for season information.
Starting Fall 2016, orange and blue reversible jerseys are provided for all pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st-grade and 2nd-grade players. They can be used for home and away games and are meant to last the Kindergarten, First, and Second-grade seasons.
Black soccer shorts and black soccer socks are recommended because they don’t show dirt stains as much.
Shin guards are also required to play. These items are not furnished by the club, but may be purchased at any sporting goods store. OPSC prefers the hard or plastic shin guard with the ankle protection. We have found it protects the players legs and ankles the best. OPSC does not recommend the sock shin guard combination because it does not protect the shin very well.
Soccer socks must be worn over shin guards.
Soccer cleats or tennis shoes may be worn at the games, but not baseball or football cleats. Baseball and football cleats have a toe cleat at the tip of the shoe which can injure a player when kicked.
No jewelry allowed, including earrings or watches. Medical bracelets must be taped down on the wrist.
