Registration is from July 1 through August 2 (in person) August 3 (online), 2019. You may register in person at the Parks and Recreation Office. Office hours are 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or online. Registration forms will be available in the office. After the registration deadline, anyone interested may sign up for the waitlist online only and will be assigned to teams on an as-needed basis.
Youth ages 3-18 may participate. Students who are currently in grades 8-12 and are trying out for a high school soccer team are encouraged to register now for recreational spring soccer. Refunds will be given to those registrants who make a high school soccer team.
Age Grouped Leagues (ages 5-18)
Age grouped leagues are all coed and organized as follows: 6 and Under (6U), 8 and Under (8U), 10 and Under (10U), 12 and Under (12U), 15 and Under (15U), and 18 and Under (18U). Players will be assigned to a league based on their age as of October 1, 2019. This is the same date the schools use to determine “school age.”
Example: Even though a child may have turned 11 years old on October 2, their league age for fall soccer would be 10 years old, since that was their age this past October 1st. As a result, they would register to play in the 10U Fall Youth Soccer League.
Note: Children with a league age of 5-years old may be registered in either the 6U Spring Soccer League OR the “Start Smart” Instructional Program described below.
