U10 Recreational Soccer & U10 Developmental Soccer....What's the difference?

There are three main differences between U10 Recreational soccer and the U10 Developmental soccer program are: Level of Instruction, Time Commitment and Cost. 

Level of Instruction

Recreational soccer is coached by volunteer parents who may or may not have in-depth knowledge about the soccer skills and strategies necessary to enhance player development at this age.  Developmental soccer is coached by club selected personnel that have completed various coaching certification courses.  These licensed coaches have many years of playing and coaching experience resulting in broad-based knowledge and perspectives that make them uniquely qualified to take player development and teamwork to the next level while maintaining a fun learning atmosphere!  Our Developmental coaches realize that kids at this age have many different sporting interests and are understanding when a child may be arrive late or miss a practice on occasion.

Time Commitment

Recreational soccer generally has less time commitment.  Typically, there is only one practice per week with most league games being held in the greater Madison area and occasionally in other outlying cities.  Developmental soccer has a greater time commitment.  Practices are held twice a week and, like the recreational soccer league, games a held in the greater Madison area and occasionally in other outlying cities.  Additionally, Developmental teams will participate in 2-3 total tournaments.


Recreational soccer will cost around $200-$250 which includes:  club registration fees, a game t-shirt, about 1 practice per week (determined by the volunteer coach) and 7-8 league games.  A local tournament may be done if the coach and team agree to do so.  
Developmental soccer will cost an estimated $650-$725 which includes:  club registration fees, official club uniform (shorts, 2 jerseys, and socks), two practices per week, coaching fee, 7-8 league games, and 2-3 tournaments.

The Mission of the Waunakee Area Soccer Club Youth Soccer Academy is to provide a fun and challenging soccer environment that will allow players of all abilities to grow as people and develop to the best of their soccer abilities.  Our focus will be on the development of each player in a fun and safe environment.

The Waunakee Area Soccer Club (WASC) will once again present a soccer enrichment experience for all children ages 4-9. The Youth Development Academy is designed to provide the skills and experiences necessary to help transform your child into a skilled and confident soccer player.

The only prerequisite for participation is the child's interest and ability to make the time commitment necessary. The Youth Development Academy is a supplement to the regular team format and does not require your child to leave his or her current team.

The Academy experience will provide additional opportunities for those children seeking more from their soccer experience. The goal of the program is to develop a deep-rooted love for the game of soccer as well as teaching the fundamentals of dribbling, juggling, trapping, passing and shooting. Emphasis is placed on participation and learning in a fun and safe environment.

All academy sessions will be under the supervision of WASC Coaching Director, Jesus Torres and WASC club coach Mark Anderson, both USSF licensed coaches. The coaches will bring a variety of coaching experiences and insights for your child. The ratio of players to coaches will not exceed 12:1.  Additional coaches may be brought in depending on enrollment and topics.

The Spring Youth Developmental Academy is scheduled to begin in April 2014. :

Sundays, April  13 & 27 (April 20th is Easter)  May 4 & 18 (May 11 is Mothers Day and May 25 is Memorial Day weekend) and June 1 & 8.
