SOCCER


Image

Not only is UNITED internationally synonymous with soccer, but it honors the collaborative relationship of the three towns that have comprised the Oyster River Cooperative School District since 1954 and been supported by the Oyster River Youth Association (ORYA) since 1991.

Our motto STRENGTH IN COMMUNITY celebrates the everyday contributions of parents and players in our volunteer driven organization and symbolizes what we can achieve when we put community first.

    FALL ACADEMY 2022 | 2018-2015 Birth Years

    • Birth Years: 2017-*2018 (U6) Coed

      ORU’s youngest soccer program meets once per week and utilizes stations during each session to introduce players to fun games which focus on a specific skill being introduced. Players move from station to station, use their imaginations, build coordination and, hopefully, begin to develop a lifelong passion for the sport. We’re always in need of a few extra volunteers to support the program and will provide a full curriculum for the program. *Players must have turned 4 by the start of the program to be added.

      ORU Academy shirts can be ordered for $12. If you have a shirt from a previous season that still fits, you are more than welcome to use that shirt again.  If you order a new shirt, they will be distributed at the beginning of the season.

      Difference in registration rates corresponds directly to town subsidy for youth, recreational sports. You can find more detail in the Program Outline on the website or reach out to the ORYA Office with any questions.

    • Birth Years: 2015-2016
      (U8) Coed/Girls

      This program steps up to twice per week sessions with a mid-week practice day and a Saturday morning ‘game’ day. Players continue to develop skills through fun games and exercises that incorporate their imaginations to get them excited about specific exercises they’re being introduced to. Saturdays turn into fun, non-result based ‘games’ where small sided play is the focus. Game day offers players an introduction to soccer competition in an in-house environment where quality of play and building on what was learned at practice is the judgement of success.

      ORU Academy shirts can be ordered for $12. If you have a shirt from a previous season that still fits, you are more than welcome to use that shirt again.  If you order a new shirt, they will be distributed at the beginning of the season.

    Why do Durham, Lee and Madbury residents pay different rates? When ORYA receives funding from the communities we serve, it directly subsidizes the participation of our in-house, recreational programs for members of that specific community. The differences between each residency-rate is a direct reflection of the expected or actual funding from each community in the budgeted year. If one community has a lower player fee, it means that community has chosen to reduce your participation fee in youth, recreational athletic programs. Travel-based programs are not subsidized by town funding.

      ORU sets roster caps for each age group based on league guidelines.  If the cap is reached, all subsequent players will be registered as "waitlisted" until there are enough players to form a second team.
