Soccer for kids

Looking to move to St Croix and was wondering if there was soccer leagues or clubs for kids. Two of my kids play travel soccer and was hoping there was something like that there for them.

Thank you,
Tim

Soccer is a very popular sport on St. Croix. My son has not played for a while so I don't have any information. Hopefully someone else will reply.

Thank you dougtamjj for your reply. Alana33, I thought it might be better to hear from the people who live there and experienced the soccer clubs personally. No need for that type of comment.

If that was the case, then I am sorry...... it just looked sarcastic at first glance.

The link Alana provided will take you to the Ayso st croix website which is the main stay for youth soccer on st croix. Great organization that is always looking for parent volunteers and coaches. Also a great way for newcomers to get involved and meet new friends.

I was trying to be helpful since there were various links to different soccer organizations and articles about soccer in the VI which I thought might enlighten one seeking information. It was not meant in a sarcastic manner but to HELP you since you asked.

For most forums, there are a tiny number of participants and they may not have experience with you'd question but may point posters to sources that may provide more detailed and personal info.

The chances of someone who posts regularly on forums having the experience for everything posted on a forum is very low so most try to be helpful by posting more specific sources.

IMO, every post that provides info should be appreciated.

You're welcome, klpmtm.

One of my friend's daughter went to Antilles school here in STT and played on their team. She loved it.

Parents of children moving here to the VI, should investigate what the various private schools have to offer. I know my friend could not afford the full tuition but was able to send her child there, thru her graduation, thanks to being able to qualify for special reduced tuition.

Good luck with the move.

Thanks Alana! We are definitely researching extracurricular activities for my girls. We plan on putting them in the public schools since I will be teaching there (if I get the job that is) hopefully in the same school I'll be teaching in. I'also been looking into track as well, since they do that here too.

Thank you Alana for the link!

I submitted an online registration request for my 12 year old daughter last night. Fingers crossed, that we hear back from someone at AYSO soon. I have posted a request for ideas for teens and tweens before. Out of 4 kids who moved with us, our 12 year old is the only one who has stayed behind - so far. We are hoping that soccer or volleyball will pan out so she can meet kids her age. She has told us more than once, that it is hard not having a BFF to have sleepovers and play sports with.

Thanks again Alana

You can also contact the USVI Soccer Association that has a grassroots program for kids age 5-13. 340.719.9707 or usvisoccer@gmail.com.

If you have teenage players and want to scrimmage with other teens and adults then there is a Friday night kick around approx 7:30 at Freewill on STX.

There is a very active AYSO program on STX. They usually play every Saturday at the rec field next to Diageo. During season the fields are full of kids all ages, and I think that there is a fairly active off season group there too. If you don't get an email back soon, just swing by one Sat morning and check it out.
