U13-U15 & U16-U18, Recreational Soccer

Ages 12-17

The Under 13+ Coed Rec Soccer Program provides players ages 12-17, an opportunity to play soccer without committing to a travel team schedule.  Open to all levels.  New players are welcome to participate!  The group meets twice a week to practice and play games.  Games are intramural and the schedule will be determined by the coaches.  If there are enough players to form 4 or more teams (minimum 40 players), then teams will be formed after the first week giving coaches a chance to evaluate players and form equal teams.


We reserve the right to change the format due to numbers, age, or gender.
