What does my child need to play recreational soccer?

Jersey.  All players must have a jersey, which cost $15, but you can use a blue/white reversible jersey from prior years if you have one already.

Equipment.  Players must have a ball (size 3 for children under 8, and size 4 for children 8-12, and size 5 for children 13 and older), and shin guards. Cleats are recommended but not required.

Location. All events take place at the Scheels Soccer Complex, 1010 13th Ave W., West Fargo

Cancellation Policy: cancellations will be made by 3 pm on the day of your scheduled training session or game. We will communicate this via email and website update. 

Parent Coaches:  Parent coaches are mandatory for each team!  We would like to get two parent coaches for each team. This helps keep our registration fees lower. We will refund your child’s registration fee if you coach you child’s team throughout the session. Please indicate when you register if you would like to coach your son or daughter's team.

Past soccer experience is not needed.  We will provide basic training prior to the start of the program, as well as lesson plans for all practice sessions. We will also have trained coaches available on-site to assist and answer your questions. We will provide as much support as we can to ensure that our coaches feel ready and comfortable in their roles as a coach. This is a great opportunity to spend time with your children, learn about soccer, make a positive impact on kids, and most of all to have some fun!

Questions. Finally, if you have questions, please feel free to contact Steven Johnson at sjohnson@vogellaw.com or Mike Raum at wfscmike@gmail.com

See you on the fields in 2017!!

Meet our rec director


Ericka Freed Urness

I started coaching when I was 17 years old. I had my own recreational soccer team with the FM Soccer Recreational Program. This truly sparked my passion for coaching. Twenty years later I am still coaching and find myself as excited as I was when I first started. When I lived in Colorado I was a part of the coaching staff with the Fort Collins Soccer Club-Go Arsenal! I had an amazing opportunity to work with skilled coaches and build my own coaching philosophy.

I have been a part of the West Fargo Soccer Club since 1998; I played on the very first team the club every registered for a tournament. As the first female Director of Coaches in the state I was, and continue to be, proud to say that I am a part of the WFSC.

I am a teacher in the West Fargo School District. My husband Chad and I live in Horace and have three girls: Addie, Lola and McCrae.

Coaching Licenses held:

  • 2007: National Soccer Coaches Association “National” license, earning a pass with distinction
  • 2000, 2004: North Dakota Youth Soccer Association licenses “D” and “F”
