(Cannon Cadets - Developmental Program)
VSO (Vicksburg Soccer Organization) is working closely with our Division I/II program (Cannon Soccer Club) to offer our soccer players various pathways of development. At any age, beginning as early as 3 years old, a player can play recreational soccer for VSO.
Beginning with Under-Eight (U8), we start to offer our players Academy/Pool Style training within our recreational league. Once a player reaches a true U7, U8, U9 or U10 age group, he or she may elect to join our Cannon Cadets - Developmental Program.
The Cannon Cadets will offer additional training sessions in conjunction with Academy Style training of VSO (total of 2 per week for 3 months each season). The Cannon Cadets - Developmental Program is a springboard to higher level of soccer training and allows players to experiment slowly with the demands of more competitive soccer, without immediately jumping into our Division I/II competitive select program (Cannon Soccer Club). The registration for Cannon Cadets normally opens around the same time as the registration for Cannon Soccer Club Tryouts competitive teams (late April, early May), but the season for Cadets starts at the same time as the recreational VSO season. There is NO tryouts for the Cannon Cadets and players in this pool MUST also be registered for VSO recreational league (whose registration normally opens in the summer months).
Once a player reaches a true U11 age group, he/she can tryout for our competitive teams (Cannon Soccer Club) that are primary rostered Division I/II teams and as such, they no longer play recreational soccer.
