Intramural program for Grades 3 to 8

Our In-Town program is a recreational soccer league for children in Grades 3 to 8. It is competitive but non-results oriented, meaning scores are not recorded and there are no play-offs. Players are grouped by dual grade and randomly placed on coed teams led by volunteer coaches. Teams train during the week to play friendly matches with each other on fields within the city. This program has independent fall and spring seasons.

We hope you will take a moment to review the Player Development Initiatives to learn more about the development philosophy and playing standards set forth by US Soccer for the playing formats used by this program.
