Intramural Program Overview

The purpose of the Patriot FC Intramural Program is to provide players at all skill levels with a high quality opportunity to learn, enjoy and develop an appreciation for soccer and sports in general.  We provide these opportunities in a fun, constructive, and family oriented atmosphere. 

Patriot FC serves the residents of Newtown, New Hope, Upper Makefield, Wrightstown, and surrounding communities.  We provide soccer training and competitive opportunities for boys and girls ages 3-18. 

The club offers Intramural soccer programs at Brownsburg Park in Upper Makefield and Veterans Park in Newtown

Program Philosophy 

Our program intends to foster teamwork, good sportsmanship, and an appreciation for a physically active life-style. We have adopted Codes of Conduct for coaches, for players and for parents. Our Codes of Conduct build off of one another, and insure that we are creating a safe, positive and fun environment where we can develop our players. 

Registration for the 2022 Fall season begins in late Spring and we offer the follow programmings:

  • Soccer Sprouts Intramural Program (players under 4 years old; 2019 birthyear)
  • Young Intramural Program (players 4-7 years old; 2015-2018 birthyear )
  • Recreational SEPA League / Older Intramural Program (players 8-18 years old; 2004-2014 birthyear)
Descriptions of these programs are as follows:

Fall Soccer Sprouts Intramural Program (Players under 4 years old)

Patriot FC implements a clinic-style format for our youngest players. All players born in 2019 are eligible for this division. This division has a discounted registration fee, and consists of fun challenges for our youngest players. The focus will be on playing one on one with the ball. We will hold informal scrimmages at the end of each training session, but this age group will not have the more formal structure that is found in our older divisions. This group trains once per week, on Saturdays, led by our trainers with parent assistance. Each player is required to bring a size 3 ball and wear shin guards and cleats/sneakers to practice. 


Fall Soccer Sprouts Intramural Registration

  • Registration fee includes a full soccer kit - jersey, shorts, socks and a size 3 ball (you supply shin guards and cleats).
  • Soccer Sprouts Registration Fee is $130.
  • Intramural Registration is open from July 5 through September 20. 
  • Refunds will be administered up to August 15 (anticipated uniform ordering), and will include a $25 administrative fee that is non-refundable. No refunds after August 15.

Fall Intramural Program (Players 4-18 years old)

The Fall Intramural program is our Fall league for players 4-18 years old. Our teams play in divisions that are organized based upon age and grade. Following along with our small-sided game philosophy, our youngest divisions play 3v3 sided games, our middle divisions play 4v4, 7v7 and 9v9 sided games, and our middle and high school students play 11v11.
 
Patriot FC’s IM program is a true developmental program, and as per US Youth Soccer guidelines we have chosen to play small sided numbers. Smaller sided games are played on smaller fields, much the same way that other sports use progressively sized fields to accommodate play for smaller sized players.  The purpose of this approach is to increase the number of ball touches that every player gets during a game or practice, simplify the game for our youngest players, allow each player to be actively involved in all facets of the game, and give them more opportunities to score.  Smaller numbers also mean that the coach to player ratio is smaller, guaranteeing every player more individual teaching time.  For more information on short sided games and the philosophy behind this approach, please check out the US Youth Soccer website at the following link:  www.usyouthsoccer.org/coaches/smallsidedgames.asp.
 
All intramural players in the younger age divisions (younger elementary aged players) will receive weekly training by our club training staff to prepare players for their 8 scheduled games. This will increase the amount of training exposure that each of our players receives during the season.

Inter-Club Play

Patriot FC will continue to pursue and arrange inter-club play options for our middle and older divisions.  Our younger divisions will play exclusively in-house games.  Inter-Club play will consist of home and away games for all of our teams in the older divisions.  In the past, our 2014 and older teams have participated in the SEPA Recreational League - www.warringtonsoccerpa.org/south-eastern-pa-rec-league.
We continue to explore other options for Inter-Club play that may include games against neighboring clubs.

SEPA offers our older intramural players the opportunity to play against neighboring townships in a full soccer setting, including referees. Coaches, players, and parents will be advised as to locations for weekly practices and 
home games, but they will be either Brownsburg Park or Veterans Park. Games are generally on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons. Teams will be formed in August and coaches will share the information then.
* Note: There will also be away games in this league. Away games will be played at neighboring clubs.

Intramural Coach Code of Conduct

As a Coach:

  • I will create a positive learning environment for all players. I understand that reinforcing good play is a far better coaching technique than criticizing mistakes.
  • I will encourage players to make their own decisions. I know that telling players what to do will not improve their play.
  • I will treat all officials with respect; I will be polite and courteous to them.
  • I will not tolerate inappropriate behavior, regardless of the situation.
  • I will only interact with opposing players, parents and coaches to encourage or congratulate them.
  • I will not engage in any obscene gestures, language or violent conduct. I understand that this will result in an automatic 3rd violation.
  • I will congratulate players after every game regardless of the result.
  • I will encourage communication from my team.
  • I understand that alcohol, illegal drugs or prescription drugs will not be possessed, consumed or distributed at any time at any field or complex.
1st Violation will result in a verbal warning from a member or an officer of the board.

2nd Violation will result in a written warning from the board.
3rd Violation will result in a season ban from all games and practices.

Intramural Parent Code of Conduct

As a Parent:

  • I will be supportive and encouraging to all players on the field. I will keep all negative comments to myself .
  • I will not coach. I will let the coaching staff make any adjustments. I will let the players make their own decisions or allow them to communicate to their teammates.  I know that telling them what to do and how to do it is not helping them improve.
  • I will never address opposing players or parents unless it is to encourage or congratulate.
  • I will treat all officials with respect. I will let them call the game. I understand that mistakes will be made, but the value of teaching our kids to respect officials and the game of soccer is more important than an offside call.
  • I understand that engaging in any obscene gestures, language or violent conduct will result in an automatic 3rd violation.
  • I will leave the game at the final whistle, I will not approach the referee, players or coaches unless invited to do so.
  • I will not engage in discussions with the coach or trainer about my child for a minimum of 24 hours after the game.
  • I will try to keep the game fun for my child.
  • I will encourage my child to communicate with their coach about all conflicts or questions about their own play.
  • I understand that alcohol, illegal drugs or prescription drugs will not be possessed consumed or distributed at any time at any field or complex. 

1st Violation will result in a verbal warning from a member or an officer of the board.
2nd Violation will result in a written warning from the board.
3rd Violation will result in a season ban from all games and practices.
