K-2 Spring Soccer

Our spring K-2 soccer league will play mostly on Sunday mornings/early afternoons between 10:30am - 2pm. The first two Sunday's of the season are practices and after that teams will just play games. We will not schedule K-2 baseball, softball, teeball or lacrosse during this Sunday time period to allow players to play both/all if they chose. Some coaches may want to schedule a weekday practice if there is field time available. We cannot guarantee that this scheduled extra practice won't conflict with your baseball, softball, teeball and/or lacrosse practice.

Ideally, we will start with a practices on April 23 & 30th. Then games will begin on May 7th and run through June 18th. The game schedule will be able to be found on the league website at a later date.

Grade 3-8 Roots Spring Soccer

We are happy to enter our spring third through eighth grade teams in the Roots Soccer League.  The season will start practicing when the weather is nicer and fields open in late March/early April.  The season runs into late June.   Teams are split by grade & gender with each grade having their own team (we may have more than one team in a grade if we get enough kids to play).   

For the spring season we do not offer a less competitive recreation league; however, in the fall we also offer the Quabbin Valley Soccer League.  Players that didn't play in the fall can be added as roster spaces allow.  

Practices can start in late March/early April (weather dependent) and will be determined by the coach. Some teams will have a regular practice schedule, some may practice sporadically and others may not practice at all.  As spring soccer is the out of season sport, the typical spring sports like baseball, softball and lacrosse will take the priority in scheduling fields.   We will use a combination of the Town Farm, Middle School, Mosier School and turf field at SHHS for the teams.  

Games start in early May and run through the end of June. They are played Saturdays.   For the U13 & U14 age group, they also may play on Friday nights. Half the games will be played in South Hadley and the other half will be played in other towns.  Game schedules can be found at: http://www.rootssoccerleague.com/
