Legacy Park Youth Soccer - Fall 2014

Visit Our Sponsor:

Legacy Park Youth Activities offers a recreational soccer league for Legacy Park's children, ages 3 through 13. Younger children start out in the small sided program that is designed to enhance each individual child's skill level by maximizing the amount of time they touch the ball and to provide a non-competitive environment where learning and fun are emphasized. Older children are taught skills and rules of the game. Legacy Park abides by the "Laws of the Game" as published by FIFA with some modifications made for youth players.

Register online and pay with PayPal. Note: Due to guest ratio limits, team placement for non-residents is not guaranteed until rosters are complete. All residents (in good standing with the HOA) that register during the registration period are guaranteed placement.

Cutoff date for ages is September 13th, 2014

The coordinators, coaches and assistant coaches are ALL volunteers. We appreciate their time and commitment. Most of the parents are not professional soccer players, but just being a leader to the children is important. If you know what a soccer ball looks like, you are qualified to coach or assist. Important: While registering your players, please consider volunteering your time to make the soccer program a success. Coaches and Assistant Coaches are needed, as usual, but there are also new volunteer opportunities including Division Coordinator (assists with determining the game schedules for individual divisions), Field Coordinator (assists with setup and breakdown of the field equipment before and after the games), and Jersey Distribution (assists with distributing jerseys to the players before the season begins).

Late registration adds $10 to the pricing shown above and begins on August 1st. Late registration fees are applicable to anyone that registered but did not pay during registration - no exceptions.

Note: Due to guest ratio limits, team placement for non-residents is not guaranteed until rosters are complete. All residents (in good standing with the HOA) that register during the registration period are guaranteed placement.
