Juniors Soccer

Ages 3-4

Meeting once a week, Tuscaloosa United Soccer Club’s Juniors program is offered at Sokol North Complex on Monday nights and at Bobby Miller Center on Tuesday nights for your convenience. Sessions last 45 minutes and are formatted to encourage parental participation. A parent or guardian must attend each session and participate with their child. The emphasis is very firmly on FUN! We believe that kids will be more comfortable and develop well in this type of environment.

This program is coed and led by volunteer coaches. We make every effort to ensure all groups are equal in number, age and gender. All session times are the same for every group. We are not able to honor special requests.
