The YMCA Soccer League offers co-ed teams for kids in Kindergarten to grade 3. Our volunteer coach-driven league is non-scoring and provides kids the opportunity to have a fun and rewarding experience while enjoying the game of soccer. All YMCA programs encourage family involvement–parents are encouraged to volunteer as coaches or helpers.
All practices and games take place at elementary school outdoor soccer pitches. Please check back in late January for school locations, practice times and league registration information.
