Youth Recreational Soccer Leagues

The YMCA's Spring and Fall Soccer Leagues are coed, with an optional girls division being offered starting at age 7.  We support each player at their current level of play and provide opportunities to increase their individual skills.  Through participation in practices and games, players learn sportsmanship, how to work as a team and to build quality relationships with fellow players and coaches.  We are a 100% Volunteer Coaching League.  YMCA athletic staff are available during practices and games to assist our soccer family.  Soccer is a game for the players, we let the kids to play.  We believe one of the best teachers of the game is playing it.  Most importantly it should be fun.  Join our soccer family, awesome coaches, great families, amazing players and a dedicated YMCA staff. 

COVID Update

We are excited to share that we will be resuming a modified season of outdoor youth sports to follow the current recommendations and guidelines provided by our government, the CDC and local health officials. Our spring season of Youth Soccer, Itty Bitty Soccer and Flag Football will resume Monday, June 8th with team practices held weekly. 

Because we've seen such a great response from parents and kids, we've decided to reopen registration for anyone else who'd like to join. Learn more or register online below, or click here to register for flag football.
