Spring registration is now OPEN!
Recreational Soccer is for boys and girls in grades 1 through 8. Recreational Soccer builds upon the lessons learned during Micro soccer and prepares your child to play on a travel team or to continue playing Recreational Soccer. Practices are typically once per week for the younger teams and twice a week for the older teams and allow the children to have fun and be part of team environment.
Grades 1 & 2 (U8) will play games on Saturday mornings (and a possible Sunday) at Malerbo Field in Burlington and sometimes in Harwinton.
Grades 3 through 8 (U10, U12 & U14) will play games in Burlington and also in towns such as Farmington, Avon and Simsbury as part of the Farmington Valley Rec League (FVL). FVL games are usually played on Saturday but there may occasionally be a Sunday game as well.
All towns playing in the FVL follow US Soccer's Birth Year age guidelines when forming teams. For the Fall 2023 through Spring 2024 seasons, girls and boys teams will be formed as follows:
U14 = Born 2010, 2011 and 8th graders born in 2009
U12 = Born 2012, 2013
U10 = Born 2014, 2015
U8 = Born 2016, 2017
