Developing Champions for Life!


About Challenge 2

The Loudoun Soccer Rec Challenge 2 program is available to 5th and 6th grade players who are more experienced and are more seriously focused on soccer, and for players (and parents) who are willing to make a stronger commitment to prioritizing development above the social aspects of youth soccer. The primary differences between the Recreation and Challenge divisions are the level of play and the distances to travel for away games. Coaches for Challenge teams are volunteers.

Challenge is NOT for new or inexperienced soccer players; Rec 2 is a more appropriate program.

Volunteer Coaches:
Enthusiastic and committed leaders are needed to oversee our Recreational teams on a seasonal basis (Fall and/or Spring), either as a Head Coach or as an Assistant Coach. While most of our volunteer coaches are parents coaching their child’s team, anyone can also volunteer to give back to the game and to their community. - Learn more here!

Challenge 2, Classic and High School Playoffs Spring 2023 Rules

 Rules and Saturday Sideline Behavior:

  All rules from the regular season (playing time, goalkeeper rotation, etc.) will be enforced.

We have received more than the usual amount of emails this season with regard to lack of playing time. Please keep in mind that each player that is attending at least one practice deserves his or her 50% time. 

Loudoun Soccer Staff will be out and about on Saturday keeping an eye on things. Make sure to say hello if you see one of us and let us know how things are going.       No referee abuse will be tolerated.

Additionally: any games ending in a tie will proceed directly to Kicks from the Mark (penalty kicks) to declare a winner. No overtime periods will be played.

We have made a modification to the “on the field rule for PK”s” Normally a player must be on the field before the end of regulation in order to participate in Penalty Kicks. We are modifying this. After regulation if the score is tied, you will be given 2 minutes to select any 11 players that are present and, on your roster, to participate in the penalty kicks. This includes your goalkeeper

All other players must remain in the bench area. 

  Score Reporting:

 The winning coach is responsible for getting the game card to the site official immediately following the game. If there is no site official, please text a photo of the game card to 703-431-8054. This number will be written on the back of the game card. Once the score is reported, we can update the online SportsConnect calendar with the next game.
