2022 PARPC Girls Recreational Soccer Program

This is a recreational soccer program for school aged girls from Kindergarten to Eighth Grade who reside in the Palmyra, Pennsylvania area.  This is a program geared toward learning and fun, in a relaxed nurturing atmosphere.

Location -Practices held at Ridge Road Park and Pine Street Elementary Fields. Games will be at Ridge Road Park. (500 Ridge Road, Palmyra).

Times-Practices will start the week of March 21st. Days and times vary each season dependent upon schedule availability noted on registration forms. We balance ability, age, and schedule availability to make the program as balanced as possible for the best experience for our girls. This is done in order to leave no athletes behind. You will be notified by coach when your practices will be the week of March 14th to begin the week of March 21st. Just note on your registration the days of the week your athlete is NOT available. Practices will be 2x per week the first 2-3 weeks of preseason then move to practices 1x per week with a Saturday game for the remainder of the season.

Covid-19 Update to Parents:

Dear Parents,

First and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.  We have received questions from the community about if and how COVID-19 will change this year’s athletic season.  We know this outbreak has been stressful to many and recognize that exercising and participating in activities like sports can be a healthy way to cope with stress and connect with our community.  After careful thought and planning, we are excited to let you know that we plan to resume youth sports while following CDC considerations to protect players, families, and our community.

The health and safety of our athletes, staff, and volunteers remain our highest priority!  Below, you will find a summary of actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible while also allowing our athletes to play.  We are:

  • Intensifying cleaning and disinfection by disinfecting equipment between use as feasible.
  • Reducing physical closeness or contact between players when possible such as allowing players to focus on building individual skills (like dribbling and juggling the soccer ball), keeping children in small groups, and staggering arrival and drop off times, putting signs and using cones and lines on the playing fields to designate that coaches and players stay 6 feet apart, discouraging unnecessary physical contact, such as high fives, handshakes, fist bumps, and hugs and replacing these with a modified cheer.
  • Promoting healthy hygiene practices such as hand sanitizer before and after practices and games, encouraging children to cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or to use the inside of their elbow, and reminding them to not spit.
  • Face masks are currently optional for spectators, coaches, and players.
  • Limiting the sharing of equipment. Example- this year, players are encouraged to bring their own soccer ball if possible.  If they do not have access to a soccer ball, PARPC will provide soccer balls to the coaches.
  • Spectators may attend practices and games. Please social distance 6 feet apart at all times.
