Fall Soccer Programs

In the fall we offer a variety of soccer programs based on grade/age. Below is more information on each program.
  • Age 3-5 & K-2 Futsal Street Soccer
  • K-2 Recreation Soccer
  • Grade 3-6 Quabbin Valley Soccer (Recreation)
  • Grade 3-8 Roots Soccer (Competitive)

Age 3-5 & K-2 Futsal Street Soccer Program

The aim of the program is to increase the players personal skills to the next level. Using Futsal and Street Soccer programs as a platform for high speed, high volume ball touches and maneuvering in tight spaces. This process produces skillful players. Players are not broken into teams, and no games are played in this program.

The program typically runs on Sunday mornings with the K-2 age group running first and the Age 3-5 running second. This allows those in K-2 to participate in both Futsal and the K-2 Recreation Soccer program.

K-2 Recreation Soccer

Registration typically starts the beginning of June and runs through the middle of August.

Season runs the beginning of September through the end of October.

Kindergarten & Grade 1/2
Kindergarten play is co-ed with only those currently in Kindergarten. Grade 1/2 soccer is played with the grades combined, and split by gender (Grade 1/2 Girls & Grade 1/2 Boys). All practices & games for both age groups are played in-town. The season typically runs from the beginning of September through the end of October.  

Practices are held 1-2 times a week for an hour each. One weekday practice that will remain the same throughout the season, and one weekend practice that will stop  once games start. Practice times are determined by the coach of the team the player gets assigned to, and we will not know coaches and/or practice times until the end of August/beginning of September. If your child has other commitments please let us know which days DO NOT work for practices in the requests/comments section of the registration form and we will do our best to meet your request, however, we cannot guarantee it. If we are unable to meet the request we can provide a full refund up until the point we order uniforms (typically 1-2 weeks after you find out your practice time). Once uniforms have been ordered we will provide a refund minus the cost of the uniform. 

Games are on held on Saturdays and Sundays starting in late September and run through the end of October. There may occasionally be a weeknight game if a game needs to be made up and both coaches agree. Games schedules will be able to be found at: www.leaguelineup.com/shyouthsoccer
