The Neptune Soccer Association, for many years, has provided the framework for children to learn this exciting and rewarding sport while developing individual skills and learning the importance of teamwork.
The recreational program, known as Neptune Recreation Soccer, emphasizes fun and learning the basics of soccer. While teams play games against other teams within the community, individual team standings are not kept, and sportsmanship, not winning, is stressed. This program has been highly successful and extremely popular, attracting hundreds of children every season.
For children who wish to place a greater emphasis on soccer in order to further develop skills in a more competitive environment that still stresses sportsmanship and fun, there is the Neptune Travel Soccer Program. As the name suggests, teams in this program travel outside Neptune Township to compete against teams from other soccer clubs. Practices are generally more frequent and longer than for players in recreation.
