This year we will be providing Micro Soccer as an Academy-based program that is designed to be a low pressure, enjoyable event for Saturday mornings.


Micro Academy:

Each Saturday morning, players will wear their grey jersey for the practice and game. When you come down the stairs at Munro Fields, you will be directed to your assigned field for that day. 


We will have one trainer per field to help with the technical skills for the group of players. The morning will consist of fun soccer activities and drills that help teach basic soccer skills, followed by a game.


For the game, the trainers will disperse players on the field into even teams. Half the players on the field will be given pinnies to put over their shirt and the other half will be wearing the grey shirt. 


A love for soccer is our main goal so we do NOT keep score at this age level. 


Playing Times:

Micro Academy teams only meet on Saturdays. Our practices are 30 minutes followed by a 30 minute game on Saturday morning only. T


U4 Academy (under 4 years of age): Practice begins at 9:00 a.m. (games start at 9:30 a.m.)

U6 Academy (under 6 years of age):  Practice begins at 9:00 a.m. (games start at 9:30 a.m.)

Soccer with COVID restrictions:

Players must wear masks going down to the fields. Once they get on the field, they can practice physical distancing and remove the mask.


Parents must wear masks going down to the fields. As long as parents remain physically distanced from one another (more than 6 ft. apart), they can remove their mask.

Field Location:

We are located behind Munro Shoe Factory at 3770 Malvern Ave, Hot Springs, AR 71901.


You cannot see the fields from the highway, but there is a parking lot to the left of the building (follow the other eager players). There are steps from the parking lot leading down to the playing area. 


We DO have ADA access, but it is limited. This means that we cannot use ADA access for ice chests/coolers, strollers, cars, etc. It is only available for ADA required use. If you need to use this entrance, please contact HSSA and we will unlock the gate for you. Munro does not allow cars near the playing area so you or your guest will need to be dropped off at the fields, and then the car will need to be returned to the parking lot.


We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but we must abide by our field sponsor’s guidelines.  


What You Need:

Your player will need shin guards and a size 3 soccer ball, cleats or athletic shoes, and water. Cleats are not required at this age, but if you like 'em, wear 'em. Also, write the player’s name on the ball. Trust us, it's going to get lost at some point.


Parents need chairs as there is limited seating. We recommend sun block.


Academy Shirts:

Please do not customize your uniforms. If you would like to customize other items, feel free. Uniforms need to be kept the way you receive them. 


Hydration:

Bring a water bottle for your player even if it's cold outside. We have some concessions available, also.
