Spring Micro Soccer Registration now LIVE!

Spring Micro Soccer


2015 Marks the second year where Jupiter United SC will have a Spring Soccer season. Due to limited field space for both practices/training and games, we urge you to register early since we can only place so many kids per age group.

The Micro Soccer season is geared towards player development, with the aid of the best teaching tool available; playing small sided games. Please find additional information regarding Spring Micro Soccer and it’s unique format below:

U8, U10, U12 and U14/15 – Developmental curriculum will be used by professional trainers and/or travel coaches to run the training sessions.

The games will be played on Saturday, using the 4v4 ‘Street Soccer’ format. This format is really a mini tournament every Saturday, where we keep track of the score of each player individually, as they move from field to field to play several approximately 8 minute games. The field choice for every next game will be chosen randomly so the kids may play with different team mates every game. This will result in an individual winner with prizes every single Saturday! We will also record and add up every player’s score each week which will result in one overall winner at the end of the season! We realize every player may have an off day, or even miss a Saturday so we will drop every player’s lowest score from the overall standings. The game format may be switched up from week to week by manipulating the goals, the location of the goals, ETC.

Practice times:

U8 & U10 – Friday 6:00PM-7:00PM

U12 & Up – Friday 7:00PM-8:00PM


Game times:

U8 & U10 – Saturday 9:30AM-10:30AM

U12 & Up – Saturday 10:45AM-11:45PM

Why Speed Training for Soccer?

A soccer player will repeatably sprint anywhere between 10 - 60m during a game. To 
support play, close down or break out to attack opponents. 
Therefore Soccer speed is the ability to maximally sprint in a linear or straight line 
direction on a soccer field. 
To attain this particular skill at a high level you are required to increase : 
1. ACCELERATION -to achieve your speed faster 
2. STRIDE LENGTH - to cover more ground in front of you 
3. STRIDE RATE - to achieve more steps you take per second 
4. SPEED ENDURANCE - to reduce the slowing down effect of repeating many of 
these short sprints throughout the game. 
Agility and co-ordination are two of the many attributes required to 
become a successful player. Complex movements such as dribbling, 
turning, passing and intercepting often necessitate quick and large 
changes in speed and direction and correctly executing skills requires 
good body co-ordination.

Dates are 10/10, 10/17, 10/24, 11/7, 11/14 and 11/21. Cost is only $60 for 6 sessions. No more than 12 players will be accepted per age group/clinic so do not delay in registering: Full = Full! All sessions are at Jupiter Farms Park.

After losing to their northern arch rival, South Brevard Lady Phoenix, in the opening round game by a score of 3-9, the girls shut out the rest of their opponents to earn a second chance in the finals.
Before the final match the team regrouped and made significant adjustments to their game to compensate for South Brevard's strong points. The final score was 4-2 in an amazing come back to win the championship. Gianna Merigliano scored a hat trick with her 3 goals. Amy Hoagland scored 1 goal. Ashton Royal had 2 assists and Gianna Arcuri had 1 assist. Mackenzie McMichael had 4 saves in goal.
Madison Moore and Jenna Villas teamed up to completely shut down the Lady Phoenix's top scoring threat (who scored 5 goals in the opening match). Nicole Anclade fought a brutal battle with the Lady Phoenix's 6 foot, 200 pound forward and shut her down also.
For the entire tournament, the girls scored 15 goals and keepers, Morgan Stephan and Mackenzie McMichael, combined for 13 saves in goal. This championship win vaulted the girls into 14 place in the state rankings. Their next tournament is the Orange Classic in December.
Great job girls!
