Fall 2020

Trophies and Tournaments

Our U8 and younger players will receive a participation trophy from their coaches after the final game. (Coaches - watch your emails for pickup time and location.) If you know you will not be able to attend that last game, reach out to your coach about picking it up at a later date.

Our U9/U10 and older teams will participate in a tournament beginning the week of October 5. You can find your schedule here - click on the "tournament" link under your age group.

The initial tournament matchups are determined by a blind draw. We opt not to seed teams during the season, because we want coaches to focus on player improvement and a fun soccer experience. The blind draw gives the coaches the freedom to take chances and try new things during the season without worrying that the score would affect their tournament seeding.

The winner and runner up teams in U10 and U12 will receive medals. Our U14 and U18 teams have long opted for a pizza party in lieu of additional hardware for their trophy shelves.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions

  1. How much does it cost to play? Our fall season registration fee is $130 for ages 4 to third graders and $150 for fourth graders to high school seniors.
  2. What if my child isn’t 4 yet? Your child must turn 4 in 2020, per our insurance requirements. Our U5 division is for children who are in preschool – typically we have a range of 4- and 5-year-olds in that age group.
  3. What does the “U” mean? We try to group our players by age and school grade, with the school grade taking priority. A player who is U8, for instance, is under the age of 8 at the beginning of the fall season and in the second grade at school. If your child is already 8 but still in second grade, choose the U8 option. You’ll see both the “U” designation and the grade designation when you register.
  4. How often will my child practice? Practices will be held for one hour one night a week.
  5. What night will my child practice? We will be spacing practices throughout the weeknight evenings. When you register, you will be able to note a night that does not work for you, and we will make sure your child is placed on a team that practices on a different night.
  6. What if my child wants to play with her best friend or neighbor for carpooling? You may list the friend’s name on your registration. Although we will try to honor these requests, we cannot make any promises, especially if several players are asking to play together.
  7. What if I have a team of players who want to play together? The mission of Recreational Soccer is to learn to play the game and have fun. While many games can be competitive, our volunteer commissioners make every effort to create rosters of teams that will be evenly matched on the field. Nobody has fun when one team is crushing the other. (If you take joy in that, please don’t admit it.)
  8. What if I register and my child changes his or her mind? Send an email to . If you withdraw before August 1, we can refund all but $15 of your original payment. After August 1, the commissioners begin working on their rosters, so we must have a full commitment.
  9. Does everyone get a trophy? Our younger children from preschool to second grade will receive a small trophy or token for participating in the season. Players in the third/fourth grade through high school divisions participate in an end-of season tournament, with prizes for the age group champions and finalists.
  10. Are the groups coed or single sex? Our U5 (preschool), U6 (kindergarten), U13/14 (middle school) and U18 (high school) groups are coed. The other age groups are single sex.
  11. Can my child “play up” an age group? These decisions are made on a case-by-case basis. Please reach out to our director of coaching, John Mitchell, at if you would like to discuss this.
  12. Can I coach my child’s team? YES! Our program exists because of our wonderful parent coaches. If you would like to coach, please indicate your interest on your child’s registration and fill out the coaching registration form at We do limit coaches to two teams, so if you have more than two players, definitely suggest that you’ll coach the ones who do the most chores.
