OVERVIEW - SOLD

The SOLD program is geared towards players born between 2008 and 2011.

LDSA/PennFC Youth combines with two local soccer clubs, Swatara and Olmsted to form the SOLD (Swatara, Olmsted, Lower Dauphin) Recreational  League. This league provides inter-club playing opportunities for the players.  Recreational  teams are organized by the area the players live in when possible. This often means players  within the same township or neighborhood are placed on the same team. Separate boys and girls teams are maintained.  

Season runs Mid-August through October. 

Teams are "small-sided" at this age.  Small-sided soccer allows players to develop good soccer skills through increased opportunities to have the ball during play.   The league's emphasis is on fair play, developing good soccer fundamentals and developing pride in the team and the association.

We also have a Winter SOLD season for the first time. The 8 week program runs on Saturday mornings at In The Net in Palmyra. Dates are Jan 4, 11, 18 and 25. Feb 1, 8, 15, 22 with a make up date of Feb 29. It will be a coed season and will be a mix of skill training and games.  All participants will receive a club shirt.
