Spring Soccer at Southside YMCA

by Savannah LeJeune | Feb 23, 2017

It’s that time of year again!! Come and join us at Southside YMCA for our Spring Soccer Season! March 7th is the last day to sign up without a late fee!! We look forward to seeing you on the field!

YMCA soccer leagues offer a safe and productive environment for your child to learn the fundamentals of soccer as well as the importance of teamwork.  Children will have an opportunity to play the game from different positions during the course of the season.  Equal playing time, sportsmanship, and fun are emphasized.  A good pair of athletics shoes or cleats and shin guards are required

Age Groups
This sport is for boys and girls ages 3 to 17 years old.  The children are grouped together in divisions that are broken down into 2-year increments. 
3-4 year old sports are instructional clinics that introduce children to a sport and prepare them to play at the league level.
Age limits may vary by branch, so check with your local YMCA for league details.
