Program Philosophy:

The Lil’ Shield program is built for the individual development of players at the youngest ages that perhaps are not ready for club soccer but want to develop their skills and grow. A great introductory program with multiple levels for boys and girls to develop skills, learn sportsmanship, teamwork, and a passion for the game!


In-House League with opportunities for external intra-league games.  

Training Schedule:

This is a 6-week program with both training and play opportunities weekly during the 6-week period. The schedule varies throughout the year, however, we will offer, at a minimum, a fall, and spring Lil’ Shields program. You can provide your name and contact information to receive information when registration opens for the next session.

Meet Scott Woodard, Asst. Director, Lil’ Shields Program

I have always loved the game of soccer. Growing up I played club soccer and played in high school. I was blessed growing up with a great coach and role model , our club’s Co-President, Nacho Novas. Now I get the pleasure of coaching along side of him and expanding my knowledge of soccer with his guidance. I strive to be a great role model and coach and dedicate my time to make sure my players will be adequately prepared on the field. As a coach I love to teach not only soccer skills but social skills as well such as discipline, patience, determination, and teamwork.
