4/5 Year Olds

First 4/5 Skill Session & Scrimmage
Saturday August 15th practice begin for three weeks. Starting week 4 teams will practice for half the hour and scrimmage the other half.

4/5 Year-Old Scrimmages
Scrimmages are to be played as four 8-minute quarters with a 5-minute half-time and 2-minute breaks after 1st & 3rd quarters.  Each coach will be on the field during the games and will also be the referees for the game.

A jersey is required for all players. The cost of NJSL jerseys is $20 plus tax. Jersey sale dates to be announced. Player jerseys from prior years may be worn.


Shinguards must be worn for practices and games.  

Socks are required and must be separate from shinguards and must completely cover the shinguards.

It is not mandatory that players wear cleats.  Cleats may not have a "toe" cleat.  If your child has shoes with a toe cleat, it can be cut off and the shoe may be used.

Inclement Weather
Thunder and/or lightning rule - A coach can call practice/ scrimmage if the weather is severe.  If there is thunder or lightning for practice/ scrimmage, a coach will call it.  Safety is always first. If it is just raining, practice and games will continue.

Spectator Seating
Nobody is allowed to sit or stand at either end of the field during games. All spectators are to be on the opposite side of the field from the teams. 

Snacks and Drinks
Parents for each team help with halftime drink and post game snacks.  The coach should set up a rotation and send it to you and provide you with any allergies on your team.  

Soccer ball size: 
4-5’s:  size 3
6-7’s: size 3
8-9’s:  size 4
10-11’s:  size 4
12-13’s:  size 5
14-18’s:  size 5

If you need to purchase a soccer ball, please buy the appropriate size.  Any size may be used, but I strongly encourage that you supply your child with the size that that they will play with in games.  It is not mandatory that your child have their own ball, but we will practice many drills that require each child to have a ball and if your child needs to share, they will miss out on some important practice time.

REFUND POLICY – It is the parent or guardian’s responsibility to inform the NJSL of a refund request, before August 19th.  Refunds will be given only in the following circumstances: 1) the family moves out of town, or 2) a written doctor’s excuse presented  before August 19th, or, 3) a registrant cannot be placed on a team. Special consideration is given to NJSL players who try out and are placed on a local high school soccer team.  NO refunds for ADULT DIVISION.
