Fall and Spring Program

Our main program includes both a Fall and a Spring season, with players remaining on the same team with the same coach for both seasons. Games are held on various fields in Highland Park.   We can add players for the Spring only based on availability on teams (or if there happen to be enough players to add more teams).   Click on the Registration tab for further information.

Age Divisions are as follows, with separate leagues for boys and girls:

  • U4/Playground - Children who are 3 years old.
  • U5  - Children who are 4 years old (typically Pre-K) - More information about our U5/Pre-K Program can be found here.
  • U6  - Children who are 5 years old (typically Kindergarten)
  • U8  - Children between 6 and 8 years old (typically 1st & 2nd grade)
  • U10 - Children between 8 and 10 years old (typically 3rd & 4th grade)
  • U12 - Children between 10 and 12 years old (typically 5th & 6th grade)
  • U14 - Children between 12 and 14 years old (typically 7th & 8th grade)
  • U16/19 - Children of high school age. (Girls play in Fall only, Boys play in Spring only)

Fall & Spring seasons typically run for 8 or 9 weeks, with weekly games played on the weekend. 
Teams in U5 and U6 have a Saturday-only session of combined skills training and games. 
Teams in U8 and above usually practice one evening per week and play a game on the weekend. 

In return for the annual registration fee, each player receives:

  • Soccer uniform
  • A ball will be provided only for new players or those moving up requiring the next size ball
  • Participation medals or trophies (for certain age groups).

Parents are responsible for purchasing:

  • Shin guards - required during games and practices
  • Soccer cleats are recommended for best traction and touch on the ball -- to keep our players safe, only rubber cleats (i.e., no metal) are allowed with no toe cleat (avoid baseball/football/softball cleats)
