When does soccer start?
Soccer has two seasons, one in the fall and one in the spring. The beginning of the soccer year is in the fall with the remainder of the year taking place in the spring. Most recreational registrations are season-by-season, and depends upon the teams schedule. During the summer we offer a variety of camps for players to continue to improve upon their skills.
Do boys and girls play on the same team?
Most of our teams are gender specific.
Can my player play up or down on other teams?
Players with January and February birth dates may find themselves in a situation where they are more developed physically and/or mentally as the first born in their age group. To support their development, the club will consider allowing them to “play up” an age group. Please indicate the desire to “play up” with their classmates during registration under Special Requests. We will do our best to accommodate players in this situation, but please understand we may determine it more appropriate for your player to play in the designated age group.
Can i request to be on a certain team?
Definitely, you can request but this is determined by their skill set and the teams availability. We cannot guarantee special placement.
Can my player return to the same team?
- Early registration is the best way to get on any specific team, as placements are handled by order of registration. So if you want to guarantee that you return to the same team, please register early in the registration period.
- Players who register late are not guaranteed to return to their team. If you register after the Priority Player Deadline, it is VERY possible that you will lose your spot to a new player. Players who take a season off are not guaranteed their spot back.

Our volunteer coaches get to choose the practice days/times/locations, but we try to place players on teams as close to their home as possible.
