DIVISIONS/ELIGIBLE GRADES/VENUE/SCHEDULE INFO –

MUNCHKIN DIVISION – Munchkins is a clinic program for 3.5, 4, and 5-year-olds. No soccer games are played. It is a structured and fun-filled 45-minute session learning basic soccer skills and learning how to follow instructions in a group setting.

PREK – PreK players have to be 4 years old by 9/1 to participate. They practice 1 or 2 nights a week and have a game on Saturday. Team assignment, game, practice schedule, and location are not available until the last week of August.

KINDERGARTEN > 4th Grade – These grades will practice 1 or 2 nights a week and play a game on Saturday. Team assignment, game, practice schedule, and location are not available until the last week of August. For Division 5 and Division 6 we have an initiative “in progress” to have home and away games with Morris Plains Soccer Club.

5th, 6th, 7th, 8th & HIGH SCHOOL GRADES – These grades have been playing fall and spring soccer in the Rockaway Valley Soccer League (RVSL) because we no longer have enough recreation players in these grades to create at least 4 teams. The RVSL is a traveling recreation soccer league and our teams play neighboring towns. Team information, practice schedule, and location are not available until the last week of August. The game schedule comes from RVSL and is targeted for late August or the first week of September.

SCHEDULE CONFLICTS – If the schedule does not work out for your family, we will give you a full refund. Please let us know before the season starts.

SPECIAL REQUESTS – You have a section to make one request to play with a friend, specific coach, or a schedule preference. We will do our best to make an accommodation, but cannot guarantee. Please do not do multiple requests; if you do, the director will pick only one.  If you register late, special requests cannot be done.  

DEADLINE TO REGISTER – Wednesday, June 23 9:00 PM

REGISTRATION COST – $80 for one player. $120 for 2 or more from the same family.

LATE REGISTRATION COST – $100 per player (no family discount).  Team placement is contingent on us having room in your child’s division. We do not create more teams after the 6/23 deadline and once the rosters are full, additional players cannot be taken. Your child will not miss out if you register on time and preferably after you read this email. LATE REGISTRATION CLOSES Friday, July 2, 9:00 PM.
