We make every effort to field teams at every age level for both girls and boys soccer. If we an unable to field a team we will notify as soon as we can. We will work to the very end to fill a team so that the kids have a place to play. If you wish to play, we suggest you register early and encourage your friends to join as well. Also note that there may be additional costs with interleague soccer teams in terms of a professional trainer. Our coaches are volunteers, they make every effort to develop the kids skills; however some coaches and teams have opted to hire a trainer either weekly or bi-weekly. The cost of the trainer is shared by the entire team, no matter if you are at the practice or not. We also encourage our coaches to take their teams to tournaments. Tournaments are paid for by the parents of the team and are split between all who are attending the tournament only.

Force Field Protective Sweatband are provided one per registration, players are expected to wear them during games.

All teams will compete in several tournaments throughout the year, all tournaments will be paid by the parents of the players who are participating in that tournament. Teams will do fundraising activities to help defer the cost of travel expenses and team parents are expected to take equal share in this responsibility.
