Jessup Provinces Youth Organization

Keeping Youth Sports Affordable and Fun for Everyone


"KickStart" Program Overview:

JPYO soccer programs serve the youth of Jessup, Severn, Hanover, and Odenton in west Anne Arundel County by providing quality fun and skill development through recreational and competitive soccer programs for boys and girls ages 3-15.  We are an all-volunteer program that strives to promote fair play, positive attitudes, responsible role models, and friendly competition.

Players ages approximately 3-9 participate in the "KickStart" in-house recreation soccer program, which is broken down in to four age groups by birth year:   Mini Kickers (age 3), Little Kickers (ages 4-5), Junior Strikers (ages 6-7), and Seniors (ages 8-9).  All KickStart teams are co-ed.  

Mini Kickers and Little Kickers games are played 4 vs 4 (no goalkeeper) and consist of four, 8 minute quarters.  Junior Strikers and Seniors games are played 7 vs 7 (6 field players and a goalkeeper) and consist of four, 11 minute quarters.   Additional information and link to register for the upcoming season can also be found below.

- Extensive soccer knowledge is not necessary for volunteer Coach and Assistant Coaches.  This age group will focus on learning the basics of soccer while engaging in “mini games” during practices to promote basic skill building and teamwork.
