Youth Soccer

Volunteer Coaches Needed!

Volunteer coaches are needed for our youth sports leagues. Our youth leagues continue to be a great experience for the children in the community. Volunteer coaches are a big reason these leagues have been so successful. Please support your son or daughter, get involved and sign up to be coach! Volunteers receive a $25 Park District credit to be used towards future programs or activities. Coaches clinics available!

Please Note: Due to the size and nature of sports leagues, requests to accommodate individual schedules and preferences cannot be honored. Please be sure that your child will be available for practices and games according to the schedule given by coaches.

Youth Sports Blind-Draft Policy

In order to provide every child with fair and equal treatment, a blind draft process will form the teams. Due to the large number of registrants in our youth sports programs and the attempt to keep teams equal, we cannot accommodate special requests for specific coaches or teammates. Only the head coach and one assistant coach will be allowed to request that their children be placed on the same team.

Co-Ed Youth Spring Soccer

Ages 4-14 years (age as of April 13, 2019) The league is designed for participants to utilize fundamental skills of soccer in game situations. Records will not be kept and winning and losing are not the nature of the game. Each team will be directed by one or two coaches who will provide instruction on soccer fundamentals in a positive and fun environment. Teams will have either one or two practices a week. Practices begin the week of April 1 and one game every Saturday, starting April 13. Practices will be held at various parks around the park district area. All games will be played at Central Park located off Rt. 6 behind Arrowhead Community Center and Tomahawk Aquatic Center. Game times will vary between the times of 9 AM and 3 PM based on size of the league.

Please note jerseys are not included. They may be purchased at the Arrowhead Community Center for $20. They are a white/red reversible jersey that has been used in the past so if your jersey still fits it can be used for multiple seasons!
