SOCS provides competitive soccer for kids in pre-school through high school. For the 2019 Fall season, children must have been born by 12/31/2015 in order to be eligible to play in our youngest age group. If your child was born in 2016, SOCS does offer a Mini-Kicker program for these kids. Details about the fall Mini-Kickers are in the program listed below.
The upcoming Fall 2019 recreation soccer season will run from the weekend after Labor Day until the end of October or early November, depending on individual team scheduling. As we draw closer to the start of the season, we will be able to provide more specific start and finish dates. Each recreation 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 $85 for the 2019 Spring Season. After August 1, SOCS will offer Late Registration, during which there is an additional $25 fee charged to all late registrants. During Late Registration, children are placed on teams based on roster availability.
If you have any additional questions, please contact the Recreation Registrar.

Open Registration for the Mini-Kickers program will begin on June 1, 2019. The SOCS's Mini-Kickers program teaches beginner level soccer skills through FUN-damental games, exercise and imagination. Players will develop motor skills, balance and movement in a soccer environment that will help them greatly as they grow and get ready to join a U5 soccer team -- kids must have been born in 2016 to participate in this program.
Please wear appropriate outdoor shoes and a soccer ball (size 3). Cleats and shin guards are not required to participate, but the fields can be wet and muddy in the spring, so we recommend their use. There will be five sessions for forty-five minutes each, and the cost is $60. Participants receive a soccer t-shirt as well.
Session dates are presented below. Any additional questions, please contact the recreation registrar: email@example.com
Saturday Sessions -- Dates: (9:00-9:45a) Sep 7, Sep 14, Sep 21, Oct 5, Oct 11
