Celebrating 20 Years - a Season of Fun!

In celebrating our 20 years of quality, local youth soccer - we will randomly select 10 online registrants to get a free future season!  If you haven't already registered your child online, do so soon.  We will be selecting the 10 lucky players on April 15th.

This will be an extra special season.  On 9 game nights, one of our sponsors or community partners will be handing out items to all of our players.  One of the game nights, we will have a used soccer equipment drive.  We will be collecting gently used soccer cleats, shin guards, and balls, which will be donated to students in need in the RPS 205 school district.

We hope you and your family will join us this season!

Spring Session Tots

The Spring Weekday Session of Tots will run from April 6 - June 16 .
There will be no classes April 27-28, due to a trade show the ISC is hosting.

The Spring Saturday Session of Tots will run from April 16 - June 25.
We decided to delay the start of the Saturday Tots classes by one week, due to the ISC hosting the Puma Cup the weekend of April 9th.  There will be over 550 teams competing outside, and parking will be scarce.  So rather than have our Tots families be in the mix of all that - we will be starting a week later.

There will be no classes April 30th due to a trade show the ISC is hosting.

Thank you.


Session Class Times

WED     9AM

Ever wondered what size soccer ball is best for your child?  Did you even know that soccer balls come in different sizes?  Refer to the image to the right to see what size is best for your child.  Using the correct size is important to your child's soccer development.

Coaching Education for Volunteer Coaches

Whether you are thinking about coaching, new to coaching, or have coached for several years, coaching education is very important. There is always more to learn! If you are looking to further your coaching education, we highly recommend taking U.S. Soccer's "F" Coaching License Online Course.

This course is a 2-hour course that can be completed online. It can be accessed through the U.S. Soccer website.…/licenses/national-f The "F" course is intended for all parents and coaches of youth players. The focus of this grassroots course is to share U.S. Soccer's best preactices in creating a fun, activity-center and age appropriate environment for players.
