WELCOME to Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lewis Clark Valley Pepsi Small Sided Soccer! Our Soccer Program has grown to become the largest and most popular soccer league for youth in our Valley. This year alone we had 1,859 players and 189 teams participating in our fall & spring leagues!
IMPACT Our league is designed for kids of all ages & abilities to participate and succeed in a team setting. We are dedicated to helping young people become the best soccer players and people they can be. We teach youth to play at a higher skill level, with confidence and to have FUN doing it!
ATHLETE FIRST, WINNING SECOND Places skill development, sportsmanship and fun ahead of winning.
STAFF We select and train excellent monitors & referees and expect them to be impartial officials of every game played. Good sportsmanship requires the willingness to accept and abide by the decisions of all officials. Please remember, officials are human and will make mistakes, just like a player will miss a shot.
COACHES are trained volunteers who attend a pre-season information meeting/clinic and are given various resources to aid them throughout the season. Visit our Coaches Corner Here. Volunteers Are Needed! Without coaches the kids cannot participate and our programs cannot succeed. Please find a coach for your school’s team or consider coaching yourself.
SKILLS Skill development is crucial to success. We follow US Soccer recommended age outcomes to teach and build basic fundamentals of the game. This gives each participant the opportunity to progress each season while improving their overall skills and knowledge of "the beautiful game.”
ATMOSPHERE The energy, enthusiasm and positive environment of our league brings excitement to players allowing them to develop as athletes and people while having fun.
