About Outdoor Spring Soccer: YMCA soccer leagues are designed to teach players the basics of their sport while introducing them to healthy competition. For ages 5-13, participants will be in a fast paced, action-packed and challenging sport. Equipment, field size and player number are age specific to increase involvement and touches on the soccer ball. Participants will improve basic soccer skills, learn good sportsmanship and have fun! You will register by age and your team will be determined by practice day preference and coach/buddy requests. Practices take place for 1 hour per week (Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu or Fri 5-6, 6-7 or 7-8pm) at Lake Forest Park Elementary. Practices start the week of April 3rd. Games are played on Saturdays starting April 29th, 2017.Team Selection Process: Teams will be determined by the director based on the total number of participants registered and what day, coach, and/or buddy preferences each participant has stated upon registration. This will ensure an even league throughout. If you list that you would like to volunteer to coach, you will be given priority choice and will be contacted to see which practice day/location you would like. If you do not have the blue/grey reversible jersey from the 2016 spring outdoor soccer season or the blue/grey reversible jersey from this fall 2016 indoor soccer season, you will need to purchase a new jersey for $10.
