Fall 2021 Season
Please note that for the safety of our players, volunteer coaches, and parents, participation will require adherence to COVID guidelines (which will be communicated prior to the start of the season).
We are following- COBB COUNTY SCHOOL COVID GUIDLINES.
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 providing a non-competitive environment where learning and fun are emphasized. Older children are taught the 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.
9/4 – Season Starts
9/25-10/2- Fall break no soccer

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.
