The Kenan Center Youth Soccer Program provides a quality soccer experience for young people in the Greater Niagara region.

The indoor youth soccer season consists of a fall and winter session played in the Kenan Center Arena on boarded fields with a professional athletic floor covering for a safe playing environment. Players range in age from four years in the Clinic Division to 18 years in the Senior Teen Division.

The outdoor youth soccer season, played during July and August, is played on one of several outdoor fields on the Kenan Center campus. Players range in age from 4 years in the Clinic Division to 18 years in the Senior Teen/E Division.

The Kenan Center Youth Soccer Program concentrates on providing basic soccer skills training. Team size varies in each division, and is designed to afford each child personal attention in order to address the specific needs of the players and equal playing time during games. Each division is grouped by age and skill level.
