This year we will be providing Micro Soccer as an Academy-based program that is designed to be a low pressure, enjoyable event for Saturday mornings.

Micro Academy:

Each Saturday morning, players will wear their Micro Soccer shirt for the practice and game. Parents will check in each Saturday and be directed to their child's assigned field for the day.  These assignments are based on age and skill level and are balanced to keep groups evenly distributed.  Please do not attend another field's session as this will make the numbers uneven and result in unequal play time.  

We will have one trainer per field to help with the technical skills for that group of players. The morning will consist of fun soccer activities and drills that help teach basic soccer skills, followed by a game.  For the youngest age group, we will limit this to 30 minutes.  The older ages will participate in 30 minutes of drills followed by a 30 minute game.  

For the game, the trainers will disperse players on the field into even teams. Half the players on the field will be given "pinnies" to put over their shirt and the other half will be wearing their shirt. 

A love for soccer is our main goal so we do NOT keep score at this age level.

Field Location:

We are located behind Munro Shoe Factory at 3770 Malvern Rd, Hot Springs, AR 71901.

You cannot see the fields from the highway, but there is a parking lot to the left of the building (follow the other eager players). There are steps from the parking lot leading down to the playing area. 

We now have an ADA access ramp.

SIGMA SUPPLY does not allow cars near the playing area so you or your guest will need to be dropped off at the fields, and then the car will need to be returned to the parking lot.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but we must abide by our field sponsor’s guidelines.  

What You Need:

Your player will need shin guards and a size 3 soccer ball, cleats or athletic shoes, and water. Cleats are not required at this age, but if you like 'em, wear 'em. Also, write the player’s name on the ball. Trust us, it's going to get lost at some point.

Parents need chairs as there is limited seating. We recommend sun block.

Academy Shirts:

Please do not customize your uniforms. If you would like to customize other items, feel free. Uniforms need to be kept the way you receive them. 

Hydration:

Bring a water bottle for your player, even if it's cold outside. We will have limited concessions available.  

Additional Information:

Please share this information with anyone who needs to know, especially when it comes to weather cancellations.
