Our spring soccer season is scheduled to start on April 22nd and run through June 3rd. (No Memorial Day weekend) Fields are made available, assigned and maintained by the town of Wethersfield. Once we are assigned fields, we will pass that information on to you.
Times of programs are determined after the registration is closed so that we can accommodate the number of teams needed per time slot. Historically, the u4/u5 session are an hour and run between 9-11 and the u5-u8 programs run between 12-4.
Division directors begin creating teams and schedules after registration is closed on March 15th.
Coaches will contact you with season information in early April.
U8 soccer teams will have one practice during the week and games only on Saturday. All other divisions will meet only on Saturdays. Practice times and days are chosen by the team coach.
Players will need shin guards, a size 3 soccer ball and a water bottle. Cleats or sneakers can be worn. Shirts will be provided.
