Being a Recreational League, participation is key. For all players to learn and enjoy the game, each player must play at least 50 % of the game. Teams are rearranged every year in order to ensure that every team has a mix of new players and more experienced players. This ensures that as many games as possible are competitive and no "all-star" teams will dominate an age group. There is NO tryout, and everyone who registers will be placed on a team.
Our oldest age group starts with players born in the year 2000 (UNDER 19)
Special consideration may be taken for younger children who fall outside of the 2014 boundary. Please contact us for information on this.
For players younger or older than this age range; please check out the other programs Nationals USL has to offer.
A full year consists of both Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 Seasons.
FALL 2018 begins early September 2018 and ends on late October 2018
SPRING 2019 begins early April, 2019 and ends early June, 2019
Players/Coaches can elect to play with a friend, for a specific coach, relative, or with school mates. We do allow teams to stay together if the players and coaches request to do so. Special requests will be taken on registrations up until July 1st, 2018. While we do try hard to meet all special requests, we cannot guarantee requests, and refunds will NOT be given because a special request was not met.
Players requesting to play on a specific team or for a specific coach will be granted in the following order:
All teams are coached by volunteer parents. Our coaches are encouraged to practice weekly with their teams, however, player participation and personal schedule can greatly impact this. Because of this, team practice times and locations are up to the discretion of each HEAD COACH and vary from team to team. The permits that we hold for practice locations can be found on the Facilities & Fields page. Coaches are encouraged to use these locations for practices.
Number of Games
The number of matches played varies for each age group. Please see below the details for your child's age group:
Check out the Age Matrix to determine what age group your child and their friends will be playing in this coming season.
The seasonal soccer year runs from August 1st through July 31st.
Recreational Youth players with August and September birth dates may request to play up with their school grade.
Requests should be noted on the online registration form.
Note: The format “U" followed by age, really means that age and younger. For example, U8 should be read as 8 and younger.
