Recreation Soccer

The soccer seasonal year operates from September 1 to August 31 of each year. At the recreation level the seasonal year is broken into Fall and Spring seasons. Teams are formed every fall with players randomly assigned to coaches. Every attempt is made to place players with coaches in their practice area, but this is not always possible. Players remain on the same team for the seasonal year. Players only playing in the Spring are added to teams by the registrar as needed.

No scores and no standings are kept in recreational soccer. The programs are designed to develop individual skills for players while having fun. Parents are expected to be positive role models and cheer on all players. We also encourage parents to participate in the program as coaches, assistant coaches, team managers and league volunteers. Please consider helping out any way you can.

Recreation registration opens July 1st and December 15th.  See below for other important dates.
The age ranges for recreation will switch to calendar year for the 2017-18 seasons.  The age ranges and roster sizes will be similar to NCYSA's recommendations here for 2016-17 seasons:
