Toddler league aims to share love for soccer with young athletes

The Laredo Heat SC youth academy is aiming to spread the joy of the sport with some of the city’s youngest athletes as it hosts a toddler soccer league open to the public beginning April 9 at Texas A&M International University.

No experience is necessary to participate in the league which features a 3v3 format for children ages 3 to 5. Teams may have a maximum of five players, and the cost to participate is $100 per team.

“We’re excited to welcome existing soccer players and newcomers alike,” Laredo Heat SC President Shashi Vaswani said. “This league will be a great way to bring together friends and to introduce new friends in a fun environment. We can’t wait to see how much fun they are all going to have out there, and hopefully they all develop a passion for the sport along the way.”

There are two divisions with a U5 category for children born in 2017 and a U4 category for children born in 2018 and 2019. Players may only play on one team per division.

Games feature two 10-minute halves and a two-minute halftime. They will be played on fields with a width of 25-30 yards and a length of 35-40 yards, and scores will not be taken.

Teams are responsible for providing size 3 balls, and players are recommended to wear shin guards. There are no goalkeepers in the 3v3 format, and slide tackling and heading are not permitted.

The league will be held from 9-11 a.m. every Saturday from April 9 through May 7.

Anyone interested in participating may call (323) 740-6998 for more information.
