Spring Soccer Programs

REGISTRATION COMING SOON!

In the Spring we offer a few soccer programs based on grade/age. Fall is the primary season for soccer, and there are more offerings during that time. Below is more information on each program.
  • Age 2-3 & 4-5 Futsal Street Soccer
  • K-2 Recreation Soccer
  • Grade 3-8 Roots Soccer (Competitive)

Age 2-3 & 4-5 Futsal Street Soccer

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 programs run 40-50 minutes long depending on the age group typically runs on Sunday mornings between 11am and 1pm. More exact details will be out once they are established.

K-2 Spring Soccer

New this spring, we are going to offer games for spring soccer for kids in Kindergarten and Grades 1 and 2.  The total registrations will dictate how we break the teams down.  Ideally, we would have a Kindergarten coed division, and then combined divisions in Grades 1 and 2 broken down by gender. 

Play will be on Sunday mornings/early afternoons starting April 11 and running to June 13. We will take off May 9 for Mother’s Day.  The teams will practice for the first two sessions (April 11 and April 18), and then jump into games on April 25.  We are looking at playing somewhere from 10:30am to 2pm on those Sundays. 

If a coach wants to schedule a weekday practice and if there is field time available, we will do our best to accommodate that.  Please note, we cannot guarantee your baseball, softball and/or lacrosse practice will not conflict with a weekday practice.  We are not going to schedule and baseball, softball or lacrosse during that Sunday time period. 

Games schedules will be able to be found at: www.leaguelineup.com/shyouthsoccer

Uniforms will be provided for each player and will include a shirt and socks.  If you didn’t play during the fall season or need a new pair of shorts, those can be purchased separately for $10 extra.  There will be a note at the time of registration to do this. 

Players/Parents are required to supply sneakers and/or cleats. Shin guards are not required but are highly recommended.  The coaches will have soccer balls, medical kids and COVID kits.

Due to COVID-19, there will be some modification to play as well as limits on the number of spectators.  This information will be communicated once the league starts and will be based on the regulations from the State at this time.

Grade 3-8 Roots Spring Soccer

Registration begins the beginning in January and runs through the end of February.

Season runs April (weather dependent) through the end of June.

Grades 3-8:
Teams are split by grade & gender (Grade 3 Girls, Grade 3 Boys, Grade 4 Girls, Grade 4 Boys etc.) These teams will play in the Roots Soccer League. The league is made up of teams from Western Massachusetts (Agawam, West Springfield, Wilbraham, Ludlow, Northampton, Palmer, Granby, Chicopee etc.).  The Roots Soccer League is the more competitive league. For the spring season we do not offer a less competitive league but in the Fall the Quabbin Valley League is offered (more information on this can be found on our Fall Soccer page).

Practice can start in 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 soccer is the out of season sport, in season sport (lacrosse, baseball, softball, tee-ball) practices & games take priority. 

Tryouts/Evaluations occur only in the Fall season. Players will play on the teams they played on in the Fall and any new players will be added to the team in the lower division, if applicable.

For the Roots Soccer League parents will need to upload a picture of their player and provide information on the Roots Soccer website. This allows players to be approved and rostered correctly, and also provides updates on their players game schedule. You will receive an email with information on how to go through the process when needed. Players will not be allowed to play unless this information is provided. If your player played in the Fall season, you will not need to do this. 

Games started the beginning of 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. For grades 3-4 a jamboree will be held at the beginning of the season, for grades 5-8 playoffs will be held for the top 4 teams in each division. Game scheduled can be found at: http://www.rootssoccerleague.com/

Uniforms will be used from the Fall Season. If a players uniform does not fit or is lost please email Danielle ([email protected]) to let her know at the time of registration. An additional $30 will be owed to replace the uniform. New players will receive a uniform (shirt, shorts & socks) with their registration fee.  Players/Parents are required to supply shin guards and cleats.
