Soccer Registration Time!

July is the time to register your child for the fall recreational soccer program.

The recreational soccer program is a non-competitive, fun and developmental program for boys and girls entering kindergarten through eighth grade. With the success of smaller teams last year, we will continue this format for 2017. There will again be a kick-off the season clinic for coaches to improve on their coaching techniques. This clinic will be held on Saturday, September 16.

We are always recruiting coaches to assist with this program and make it a success. An incentive program will again be offered to coaches who commit to coaching the full soccer season. Coaches will have the opportunity to register their child for a future sports program at a discount.

Practices will begin weeknights the first week in September and the recreational games will be held on Saturdays, September 23 through October 28. The program will teach children about good sportsmanship and soccer skills under the guidance of dedicated volunteer coaches.

You can register 24/7 with our online registration system. Log onto and create an account – if you haven’t already! Register during the month of July and avoid the August late fee. Complete details of the program will be listed on the registration page.
