In Town Rec Program - Offered in the Fall (Spring league coming)

In-Town
The purpose of the In Town soccer program is to provide our young athletes an opportunity to learn the game of soccer, have fun with friends and participate in a team activity.  From Pre-K to Grade 1 we want our players learning how the game of soccer works while working with coaches on their new skill set.  Games are held for Kindergarten and Grade 1 against in town opponents, with everyone learning and having as much fun as possible.  Ages U9-U13 the fun continues but the competition changes.  in the U9 and U11 divisions we will be playing at Wolf Swamp fields and putting what we learned in the previous years to the test! In the U13 division we will be playing in the Springfield Soccer Division and having fun experiencing more competition!
