A: House league is a recreational league open to players of all skills and abilities. It offers weekly game play. Players are assigned to teams, coached by volunteer parents and learn the game through play. Development classes are skills and drills training, open to all players, coached by our clubs OSA Coaches and JR Coaches. The Competitive soccer program combines training and game play. Competitive requires a 3-4 day commitment year round. Players are selected based on Team roster availability and skill.
