This Co-Ed youth soccer league will take place at Jackson Friends Church for grades Pre K – 3rd Grade. Pre Kindergarteners should be four years old or turning four years old during the season (three years old is too young in most cases). Our fall soccer league goes up to 3rd grade, because our flag football league is also running at the same time in the fall on the large main field. The junior soccer league will run August 27th – October 22nd. It will include nine practices and seven games.
The cost is $75 and includes a t-shirt, pizza at the last practice and an end of year gift! Anyone who needs a jersey, it is $17 and yours to keep and reuse (same ones used for flag football/soccer).
Teams will practice once weekly (TUESDAY OR THURSDAY, with a potential of Mondays IF an overflow of teams), with games on Saturdays late mornings/early afternoons. We will be running at the same time as flag football but on smaller fields to the left of them. First practice will be on Saturday, August 27th (ONLY Saturday practice). First weekly practice will be Tuesday August 30th OR Thursday, September 1st (depending on your team), unless we add in Monday practice, in which that first practice will be August 29th. Practices take place at 5:15 OR 6:05 PM. Practices are 50 minutes long, followed by a short devotion (practices 10 minutes shorter than spring schedule due to losing sunlight in October).
First game will be on Saturday, September 10th, 2022. Games will start at 10 AM. Pre K will be it’s own division this year, K/1st grade will play together and so will 2nd/3rd Grade. The Pre-K field will be played on a smaller field and K-3rd on a bigger field. Matches will be played 4 vs 4, with a maximum of 8 players on each team (unless larger teams need to be made, in which case games will be 5 vs 5).
WE NEED COACHES. Please sign up to coach if you can spare an hour on a week night and a Saturday each week. We have everything you need to be a great coach, from first timers to experienced coaches 🙂 ($10 off coupon for next registration with us)
The league is recreational and will focus on developing youth’s soccer skills, as well as their relationship with Jesus Christ. Youth will learn good practice techniques and develop interpersonal and teamwork skills.
The league will be split up into three divisions:
Pre K Level
K/1st Grade Level
2nd/3rd Grade Level
There will be two evaluation dates available for the youth to come out and be evaluated before teams are created. August 16th, 5:30 – 7 pm OR August 18th, 5:30 – 7 pm. Youth need only attend one. You may come any time during the 5:30 – 7 PM time frame (evaluations only take 10-15 minutes per participant). Evaluations will be at Jackson Friends Church, outside on the field by the playground. Depending on weather/field conditions evals could be moved inside. Soccer evaluations will take place at the same time as flag football evaluations.
All practices and games will be held at Jackson Friends Church, outside on our fields. In the event we have severe weather conditions, practices will be cancelled but games will be rescheduled.
