Participation, Games, and Practices:

Our league is open to 4-12 year olds, based on their birthdays as of November 1. Players are placed on teams based on evaluations (except for 4-5 year olds).  Games will begin in early September and end in late October.  Games are played only on Saturdays.  Each child will play in approximately one half of every game.  Practices begin in August, and games begin on September 6, 2014.  Soccer fields are on the back of Graceland's property - just follow the signs to the Sportsplex!  Bring chairs to sit in as there are no bleachers on the fields.  Please don't park across the bridge - there will be a parking lot designated for practices and games.
Note: Shin guards must be worn by all players before they may participate in league play.
Registration and Fees:
The cost of the youth soccer program is $60 for first child, $55 for second child, and $50 for each additional child. This covers the costs of equipment, trophies, officials, maintenance of the fields, and a t-shirt. Payment is due when the child is registered.
Other Dates to Know:
  • Picture Day will take place just before games begin (probably in late August).  Check with your coach for specific dates and times.  Payment is due the day of if you're interested in purchasing pictures (Sonshine Studio accepts cash, check, or credit card).  If it rains, pictures are taken in the gym.
  • The Awards Program for the soccer season will be held at the end of the season just after the last games finish (probably late October).  All players will receive either a medal or trophy.
