    Stay Tuned for Details about the Spring 2017 Recreation Season

    Late Registration is now closed. Please visit our website in late December to view our Spring 2016 program descriptions.

    SOCS provides competitive soccer for kids in pre-school through high school. For the 2016 Fall season, children must have been born by 12/31/2012 in order to be eligible to play in our youngest age group. If your child was born in 2013 or later, SOCS does offer a Mini-Kicker program for these kids. Details about the Mini-Kickers are available below in the program description.

    The season will run from the weekend after Labor Day until the end of October or the beginning of November, depending on game scheduling. Each team plays eight (8) games over the season, and typically has one practice a week, the date and time of which are determined by the coach. Kids need cleats, shin guards, gym shorts and a soccer ball. Game jerseys are provided by SOCS. Our registration fee remains a very affordable $75 for the 2016 fall season.

    If you have any additional questions, please contact the Recreation Registrar.
