St. Catherine’s Montessori Primary and Lower Elementary Soccer, commonly known as "Saturday Soccer" is a parent-led soccer program for our younger students. This is a noncompetitive soccer league. There are no goalies and the score is not kept. The emphasis is on sportsmanship, learning beginner soccer skills, teamwork and fun.
The practices and games are held Saturdays mornings form 9:30 – 11:00 a.m. with a Fall season. Parents serve as coaches, and all parents are welcome to participate, regardless of soccer experience.

Things Parents Need To Know
Players who lost interest or are too tired to play will be asked to sit on the sideline and support their team. We ask that parents try to encourage the children to watch and support their teammates and get back into the practice/game when rested. A responsible adult for each player MUST be onsite at all times.
