Spring soccer is back and we have 4 coed age groups; 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-11. At this time, all teams for all age groups are completely full. Make sure you sign up as early as possible each season to ensure you get a spot on a team, as we always fill them up. It is possible to be added to a team if players drop out, so please send me an email if you would like to be added to my wait list. Please also click on the sports mailing list link below to get your email added to my list so you get reminders each season about registration.
Team sizes will be restricted to 10 players per team, to minimize Covid-19 larger group impacts. Practices will be determined by coaches following the coaches meeting on March 18 and will be held once per week. Coaches will contact parents after the meeting on the 18th. Games will be held primarily on Saturdays and Sundays, with some weeknight games later in the season. Practices will begin the week of March 22nd and the season will end by the first week of June. The fee for participation is $90.
Due to the current COVID pandemic, we will enforce guidelines for parents and players following CDC recommendations. These guidelines are listed under the "League Information" tab above.
