Modified Recreational Soccer

U8-U12 Fall Recreational league teams for boys and girls ages 7-11.

2024 Recreational Registration Will Open April 1st.

Modified Recreational "Mod Rec"

The Lake Hills Soccer Club Mod Rec soccer program is a FALL team experience for children ages 7 through 11.

"Modified" means that teams are smaller; 4-9 players on the field depending on age, with smaller fields and goals. This gives kids a lot of touches on the ball, which builds skill and confidence.

Mod soccer is focused on community values & youth development. Team rosters are grouped by neighborhood & schools.

Teams are coached by parents, grandparents, older siblings, and community members with ongoing support and training from both the club (LHSC) and Eastside Youth Soccer Association (EYSA) LEARN MORE ABOUT COACHING A TEAM!

Games are usually refereed by local teenagers and adults  LEARN MORE ABOUT BECOMING A PAID REFEREE!


Teams typically have 2 practices a week and a game each Saturday, generally between 8:30 AM and 3:30 PM, September through early November. Away games can be played in Issaquah, Mercer Island, Newport, West Bellevue, and Snoqualmie Valley (U11 &U12 only). Home games will be played within the LHSC boundaries.

Lake Hills does not currently offer Winter or Spring teams for Mod Rec players.

Practices: Specific days, times, and locations for weekly team practice will be determined by each team's volunteer coach.

U8-U10 players attend one weekly "practice" with only their team and one weekly "Mod Clinic" session with the other LHSC teams in their age group for a total of two practices per week.

Coaches usually schedule their team practice in relation to the Mod Clinic day, so teams practice on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday.

Coaches are responsible for communicating practice schedules to the team. Team practices usually begin in August and continue through the end of the season. Both practices and Mod Clinic will take place at fields within LHSC boundaries.


Mod clinics

Mod Clinics are a weekly practice session in which all LHSC teams in an age group (U8-U10)  train with their coaches at one location.

Clinicians work on skills and drills with coaches and players. Teams also often fit in a scrimmage with another LHSC team.

The schedule will be posted below as soon as it's written, which is dependent upon the fields that LHSC is able to rent from the city and school district.
