Fall Recreation Registration Info
Registration for the fall 2018 recreation soccer season is open! Please carefully read the information below to make sure your child is correctly registered and you register on time.
Fall School Grade – you need to register your child in their 2018 fall school grade and correct division. If you do not, there is a possibility there will be no room for them in their correct grade by the time you find out you registered them in the wrong grade.
Deadline – June 22 is the deadline to register. Late fees will apply after June 22 and acceptance of lateregistrants will be contingent on us having a roster spot. We will make decisions on the number of teams and roster sizes by the end of June. Do not miss out: REGISTER EARLY! If you are concerned about the practice and/or game schedule impacting other activities, you should register on time. We will give you a full refund if the schedule does not work.
Late Sign-Ups – we will provide a link after June 22 for late registrants to sign up on a hold list. This will facilitate a first come first served priority and eliminate the high maintenance of responding to multiple emails/phone calls. You will not need to sign up late if you register on time!
Eligible Grades – Fall recreation soccer is for grades PreK > 8th. PreK players must be age 4 on 9/1/18 to participate in the PreK Division. We also have a Challenger and Munchkin Division. Details below:
Challenger Division – This division is for players with special needs up to age 21. Challengers play 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM Saturdays at Upper Knuth Soccer Field. There is no cost to play in the Challenger Division.
Munchkin Division – this division is for players age 3.5, 4 and 5. Munchkins play Tuesdays and Saturdays at 1:00 PM at Upper Knuth Soccer Field. This is a clinic oriented program teaching basic soccer skills, running and agility. They do not play a regular soccer game as does the PreK Division. You can do both days or just one. Cost is the same. Make sure you know the difference between PreK and Munchkins when you register, so you end up in the right division.
Special Requests – If you have a need for a child to play with a friend or have carpool needs, you need to put it in the special request section of the registration form. DO NOT EMAIL OR CALL US ON SPECIAL REQUESTS AFTER REGISTRATION. It is your responsibility to do this when you register. Division 4 (grades 5 & 6) is a draft division and special requests are not permitted.
Start Date – Saturday, September 8 is opening day, which includes team/individual photos, clinics, and other fun activities. The end date will vary by division and is often impacted by weather and field closure.
Grades PreK > 6th – will practice 1 or 2 nights a week (depends on coach’s schedule) and have a game on Saturday. Practice nights usually start 5:30 to 6:00 and specific days are TBD until late August.
Grades 7 & 8 – will participate in the Rockaway Valley Soccer League a traveling recreation program. Games are on Saturdays (home & away) and teams will practice 1 or 2 nights a week. Game and practice schedule is TBD until late August. Teams are assembled based on date of birth. Roster size is limited, so do not wait to register.
