The city of Watertown offers two very different soccer programs, which often makes the decision of “Which program is best for my family?” a difficult one. As a family you will have to decide which program is best for your child, the program provided by the Watertown Park and Recreation and/or the Watertown Soccer Club.
The Watertown Park and Recreation Department provides several training programs throughout the year. The Fall and Spring seasons are designed to introduce young players to the sport of soccer, starting from Kindergarten.
Due to the numbers of registered players 3rd through 8th grade in this program, players are usually combined and form co-ed teams.
Park and Rec coaches are made up of parents and/or high schoolers in order to keep costs relatively low. All of the games are played in the Watertown area, generally at Brandt Quirk fields.
For kids who are more serious about soccer or who want a greater challenge, the Watertown Soccer Club offers competitive teams.
