Rec Soccer Information

Steps to get the info you need:

  1. Find your child’s name on the age appropriate Roster.  Rosters can be found under "Rosters-Schedule" (a tab above). 
  2. Identify which team number/team name your child is on, and who the coach is.  If no coach is listed for that team, we will need one of the team parents to step up and help out.
  3. Find your child’s team’s schedule so you know where to be and when.  The complete schedule for each team can be found under "Rosters-Schedule" (a tab on the left).
