About Stow Soccer

Stow Soccer Club is a non-profit organization located in Stow, Massachusetts. We offer fun and enriching soccer opportunities for children of all ages! Our main "goals" are sportsmanship and skills development. Sessions are offered in both fall and spring.

Munchkins

Munchkins

Our Munchkins group is for children 4 1/2 to 5 years of age (preK). Children must be at least 4 1/2 to participate. Children should bring a water bottle and wear shin guards to each practice. Cleats are helpful but not required. Transitions AND Munchkins practices will be held on Saturday mornings, and the emphasis is on fun! Important Note: Parent (or other designated adult) supervision is required for all children participating in the Munchkin program. All children registered for the Munchkin program receive a ball and t-shirt during their first season of play.

Transition

Our Transition group is for children in kindergarten. Transitions AND Munchkins practices will be held on Saturday mornings. Short small-sided scrimmages and ball-handling games introduce position play and teamwork concepts. Important Note: Parent (or other designated adult) supervision is required for all children participating in theTransition program. Children should bring a water bottle and wear shin guards to each practice. Cleats are helpful but not required. Children who have not played in the Munchkin group receive a ball and t-shirt during their first season of Transition play.

Grade 1/2 (formerly U8)

Our grade 1/2 groups are for boys and girls in 1st and 2nd grade; players are split into boys' and girls groups. Kids this age are starting to learn about the game of soccer and developing their own skills. Sportsmanship and fair play are emphasized. The Stow Soccer Club follows a 4v4 game format (no goalie) as we believe that this format and philosophy will take youth development to a higher level.  Most games are played on Sunday afternoons and there is one team practice during the week.

Grade 3/4 (formerly U10)

Beginning with the (U10) age group, all teams are affiliated with the Nashoba Valley Youth Soccer League (NVYSL). U10 games are 6 v 6 and consist of 30 minute halves.
