Oconee United FALL recreation! - Posted/Updated Date: August 4, 2017 5:31 pm   By: Danny Marcengill

What is Oconee United Recreation and Jr. Academy? Oconee United has tried over the past 5 years to offer Recreation and Academy (training and games for younger kids 12 and under) soccer with limited success. In 2017-18 Fall and Spring we are going to try a different approach. Instead of competing with the city recreation programs, we have decided to offer our services as an enhancement to the city program. We will be offering training sessions for what is generally off nights for the city league and practices, with an opportunity to expand play and training for your player (based on number of players).

Here is how this works- for $45.00 you player will receive extra training with Oconee United’s professional coaching staff. The sessions will be held on Wednesday nights 9/6/17, 9/13/17, 9/20/17, 9/27/17, 10/4/17, 10/11/2017, 10/18/2017, 10/25/2017 with 11/01/2017 as a make up date. We may add some weekend dates to the schedule to make up for weather and other issues. The sessions will be broken into 2 groups, players born 2005-2008 will practice at 7:15pm and players born 2009-2012 will practice at 6:00pm.

Rec Plus, players and parents that opt into this program will have the extra opportunity to play games within the United FC (Greenville, SC) league. Teams will at first be placed into the Saturday Recreation League, but depending on the success of that team, may be moved up to the Sunday Academy League. This has been an issue in the past for OUSA teams, our players are talented but raw, so we typically are too good for the Rec league, but get beat up in the Academy League. It is our hope that we can develop and train a group of kids over several seasons and develop them into a lean mean soccer team. Our 2003 and 2000 Men’s teams have found great success over the last couple of years, winning regional tournaments, etc., but those kids started out not winning a lot of games. The Rec Plus program cost $130.00 for the season, that includes about 10 games, a Rec style uniform kit, and additional training during the week. By the way, do not expect success right out of the gate with wins and losses, the teams we play at Academy level have been together generally for several years, and many have been training year round. We tend to look at early success as going things right on the field, making good passes and moving the ball, the wins will come as the team matures and gets older. Quality wins hold a lot more value than easy wins. Almost every player at Clemson, could have went to a smaller school and got on the field sooner, but to play at the next level, you have to challenge yourself, fight for playing time vs the best, that is how you get good.

Just a thought, our older teams have/will play games as USC-S, BJU, Clemson, and we have had coaching staff from Clemson, Anderson U, Colorado Rapids (MLS), North Greenville, SWU train our players and we have kids that played for OUSA currently or fixing to be college players. Our new affiliation with United FC allows players that used to have to go to Greenville or further for training to stay at home in Walhalla and Seneca and play and train on a limited basis with extraordinary talented players for all over the upstate, state, and even the region.
