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 2020 | 2016-2013 Birth Years

  • Birth Years: 2015-2016* (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.

    Uniform shirts can be reused from season to season. Only order if you do not have one or otherwise need a new one.

    *Note 2016 birth year players must have turned 4 by the start date.

  • Birth Years: 2013-2014
    (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.

    Uniform shirts can be reused from season to season. Only order if you do not have one or otherwise need a new one.

FALL TRAVEL SOCCER 2020 | U9-U14

  • 2012 & 2011 (U9 & U10) COED and GIRLS

    OR United’s U9 & U10 Travel programs utilize a blended model of our skill building Academy Program and our Travel Soccer Program. Players will experience a more structured practice session where building technical skills and love of the game are still the number one priority, but tactical concepts such as “shape” are introduced in small sided play. Participants will practice twice a week and have the opportunity to test their skills and learn age appropriate tactics with Saturday 7v7 games against local towns. This blended model ensures the proper foundation is set for players to enjoy success for years to come.

    Training Only: For those who choose to not take part in weekend games, a training only option is available at a lower cost. These players will practice twice a week with the U9/U10 travel program as described above.

        WINTER INDOOR SOCCER

        • 2019-2020 FUTSAL SKILL SESSIONS

          Come try the exciting sport played around the world that contributed to the development of famous soccer players like Messi and Ronaldo. Futsal is a fast paced 5v5 small sided soccer game that emphasizes technical skill in high pressure situations that easily translates to the outdoor game. Played on a hard indoor surface without walls and using a smaller low bounce ball, futsal allows players a greater number of touches and lots of goal scoring opportunities.

          Futsal Skill Sessions are a perfect fit for soccer players who want flexibility over the winter months or are involved in other winter sports while still getting touches on the ball.

          To offer the best value, if you register for one program you can attend both at no additional cost. In other words, sign up for the field player session and attend the goalie session for free or sign up for the goalie session and attend the field player session for free. All for $35!
