House League soccer is for recreational play,  for beginners, those who just want a short season, children looking to play a new sport with friends or make new friends, players who enjoy learning some skills and have a little competition and those who think they may want to progress in the sport.
 
House League is for players aged U7-U19 (please refer to the age matrix) who are placed on teams at two-year age groups (U8-10-12, 14 Coed and Coed High School) to practice once a week with a parent coach and play an 8-game season.
 
Do I Need to Buy New House Uniforms?
Every two years, we change our House Uniform, due to availability from manufacturers.  Current HOUSE uniform is Red/Yellow.  You do not need to buy uniforms for the U6 program or Pre-K - your registration includes a t-shirt .

How do I Change My Email Address?
To change your email address for ASA, you need to enter the registration center. Many people get confused by the wording on the registration page which says that you must have a credit card to complete the application. To change your email address you do not need a credit card, only your ASA information. Once you get by the first screen, it is much less confusing.
