Youth Soccer

2021 Youth Indoor Soccer (Early Spring) for ages 7-12
Youth Indoor Soccer is an exciting sport combining team play and individual skills. While basic skills of the game are developed through practices and games, every child learns sportsmanship and values necessary to be successful in life. All games are played indoors using the entire gym, including walls.

FIRST PRACTICES WILL BEGIN ON: February 16th or 18th

GAMES WILL BE PLAYED ON: February 20th - March 27 (6 weeks)

PICTURE DAY - Tentatively set for February 20th (may be scheduled during a practice night)

All teams will be co-ed and players will be split evenly according to age.  In year's past, ages work out to 7-8 yr olds and 9-12 yr olds combined, but this can change depending on registrations. Player substitution sheets will be used in order to keep like-skilled players on the field at the same time regardless of age.
