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

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

    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.

    With the recent launch of Oyster River United, there are new sky blue branded Academy shirts for $10. If you have a royal blue ORYA 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: 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.

FALL TRAVEL SOCCER 2020 | U9-U14

  • After much thought and many long discussions, the Soccer Advisory Group made the difficult decision to move to an in-house model for our Travel Program and not participate in the Northern New England Soccer League (NNESL) this fall. At this time, we believe an in-house model best promotes health and safety on the fields, provides much needed social interaction for our children, still offers a competitive environment for our travel players, and continues to emphasize skill development and a love for the game. 

     

    To allow for final preparations, the fall season will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 9th and end on Saturday, October 31st. In lieu of league play, we will be adding small-sided tournaments and competitive games, with players assigned to in-house teams, on Saturdays. Finally, we are very excited to partner with Soccer Sphere to provide hands-on training for our players, additional practice support for our coaches, and add to the game-day environment throughout the season.  This not only leverages the incredible experience and expertise of UNH coaches right here in our own backyard, but also lays the foundation for future partnerships. We are looking forward to creating a memorable experience for our soccer players, despite all the challenges of this moment.

        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!
