Age Registration Guide:  When registering, you must enter your child's 2018-2019 grade.  For example, a child entering 3rd grade this Fall will register as grade "3".  A child entering kindergarten this Fall will register as grade "0".  Children entering pre-school this Fall will register as either "-2" or "-1" depending on if they are starting kindergarten in 1 year (2019) or 2 years (2020).

Fall recreation soccer typically starts in early September and runs through mid-October.  We schedule 6 weeks of games and practices. One of those weeks is a 3 game jamboree. Please consider volunteering to coach a team or work in the concession stand. (Our recreation program is successful because of our great parents that step in to help! Thank you!)  Games are played on Saturdays and 1-4 Sunday afternoons if needed.  Practices are held in neighborhood school fields once per week on weeknights.  Players are required to have a soccer ball, shin guards, and water bottle.  

Age groups may be combined if registration numbers warrant. We do our best to keep players on teams with kids at their school and grade level so please choose your player's grade level correctly.
