Division Information

New and Important Information on Age Divisions and Academy Soccer

If you are wondering why your child was placed in a particular age division please follow this link and read the reasons why. US Soccer has changed how we organize divisions. It is now based on birth year and not the child’s age as of July 31st (school year).
If you are wondering why we use an Academy program for the younger ages please follow the link and read about how this format leads to greater skill development and is fun at the same time.

2013-2014 (Little Kickers)

This is a program led by a professional coach. Parent involvement is required in our Little Kickers program. You must be present on the field with your Little Kicker at all times. This program is once a week and focuses on gross motor skills and is an introduction to the basic skills used in soccer.


2012 (U6) Academy

Our Academy program is led by a professional coach. We have volunteer coaches work closely with the lead coach to follow a predetermined and developmentally appropriate curriculum. They will have one 60 minute practice and one game day per week. You will always be on the same team with the same coach for your practice but the team your child plays on for a game will change from week to week. This allows flexibility to challenge each player appropriately leading to faster development.


2011 (U7) and 2010 (U8) Academy

Our Academy program is led by a professional coach. We have volunteer coaches work closely with the lead coach to follow a predetermined and developmentally appropriate curriculum. They will have one 60 minute practice and one game day per week. You will always be on the same team with the same coach for your practice but the team your child plays on for a game will change from week to week. This allows flexibility to challenge each player appropriately leading to faster development.


2009 (U9) and 2008 (U10) Academy

2006-2007 (U12) 

This is an important transition year as many of the players will be transitioning from the Academy Program to more formalized games following the basic laws of the game including a referee to enforce rules.  This group actually has one practice the week prior to the summer season officially beginning.  The first week we will have a second practice and then will end the week with an official scrimmage against another team.  This group typically meets twice a week, with an occassional third meeting, depending on the number of teams we have.


2004-2005 (U14)
Practices at this age is at the discretion of each coach and most may show up a bit early to run some skills and drills. This is a chance to keep your soccer form through the summer or just come out and get some exercise. You will play two games a week.

1998-2003 (High School)

Practices at this age is at the discretion of each coach and most may show up a bit early to run some skills and drills. This is a chance to keep your soccer form through the summer or just come out and get some exercise. Number of games each week depend on the number of teams. Most play 3-4 games a week.

Cancelling Practices or Games due to weather:
From time to time we need to cancel a practice or game due to weather. We follow NAIA protocol. If we hear thunder we wait half an hour and see if conditions improve.
