Boys and girls are invited to join us for our Fall Youth Soccer League, our most popular youth sports league of the year!  This league will introduce and develop age appropriate skills and game-play strategies that lead to a lifelong enjoyment of "The Beautiful Game", while creating a foundation of physical abilities that translate to a variety of othersports and activities!

In collaboration with Challenger British Soccer Academy (one of the top soccer development organizations in North America), our program features a curriculum that provides a stepping stone approach to soccer skill development, and provides a well-rounded understanding of the game rules and strategies.  As with all of our programs, this instruction is delivered in a setting based on positive encouragement, inclusion, teamwork and sportsmanship.

Registered children will participate in one practice per week and a 6 game season.  All players receive a team t-shirt, and most equipment will be provided!  Bring your shoes and shin guards, and Let's Play!
