JOCO Soccer League Partnered with Kansas City Surf Soccer Club - Heritage Soccer Park

JOCO Soccer League partnered with Kansas City Surf Soccer Club (formerly Puma FC) provides the community with a recreational soccer program for children ages 3-14 (8th grade). Programs will run on Saturday or Sunday at Heritage Soccer Park through 4th grade and both Heritage and Stump Parks for 5th - 8th grade in the fall and spring. Additional programming will also be offered over the winter months.

The league’s philosophy is to enrich the youth of our community through the game of soccer while enhancing the social skills and team play in a fun and exciting sports environment. We want to lower the boundaries and engage with as many young players as possible.

This program will truly put the player first. We have created a developmentally appropriate environment which helps foster a player's love for the game and put that above anything else. Soccer professionals from KC Surf Soccer Club will be hands on within the program to ensure continued development for all.
