Lee Soccer 4v4 Program

03/17/2020 - 05/02/2020 ~ Tuesday - Saturday Registration Ends: 03/12/2020$99.00 | Operations Field/Auxillary Fields 1120 North Ocoee St, Cleveland, TN 37311

Boys & Girls Ages 5-12



The goal of the 4 v 4 program is to provide a quality learning experience for kids of all ages & skill levels in a positive, fun, organized, and safe atmosphere.  Basic skills and techniques will be taught each week in training but much of the learning will happen simply while playing 4 v 4.  Our hope is that at the completion of the program every child has improved in some way as a soccer player, but more importantly has had a really special soccer experience.  


Age Group/Divisional Break Down

As in the past, the group will be divided up primarily by age.  Each year is different and registration numbers determine how many groups/divisions there will be. 

Training times on Tuesday evenings will be determined once age groups are set, but in general the first training time (youngest players) will begin no earlier than 5:00 pm and final training session (oldest players) will end no later than 7:30 pm. 

Game times on Saturday will also be specified as age groups are finalized but general kick-off times will be 9:00 am, 10:00 am, & 11:00 am (and 12:00 noon if needed).


What to bring?

Inflated Soccer ball

Water bottle (no water will be available on the field)

Comfortable soccer shoes cleats recommended but not required.

Shin guards

Layered clothing (avoid thick, heavy jackets)

Lawn chairs for the fans!


** Please have your child wear their Lee 4v4 tee-shirt for each Saturday match


Weather Cancellation 

For cancellations due to inclement weather, we will email a notice to you one hour before the sessions begins(4:00 p.m. on Tuesday and 8:00 a.m. on Saturday).  There will be no refunds for missed dates due to inclement weather.



Please make every effort to be on time recognizing that the training sessions & matches need to be completed within the designated time.  We are very punctual with our start and completion times for our own organization but also for your convenience.

First Tuesday evening

You will be notified by email by Monday, March 16th the Squad (color) your child will be on as well as his/her Age Division

Your child will then report to that appropriate field (Red, Blue, Green or White) on Tuesday once we split the group up.

Their respective coaches will check them in which eliminates a long registration line. 

*We will have staff present and eager to help with any questions and point you in the right direction to your childs squad color. 


Saturday Matches

Please have your child wear their Lee 4v4 shirt for each Saturday match. Your child should report to his/her Coach/Squad upon arrival and then will be assigned a team for that match day (each squad will be broken into 2 teams on game day so there will be some shifting prior to each game starting).
